Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have significantly broken or been weakened by decay or a large filling. A crown fits over the remaining part of the tooth, providing strength, shape, and colour of a natural tooth.
A bridge can be use to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge fits over the teeth on either side of the gap that serve as anchors for the replacement tooth.
Crowns and Bridges are usually made of porcelain and gold alloy. Porcelain is strong and is resistant to staining. Gold Alloy is used for its strength, hardness and durability. Gold alloy and porcelain are well tolerated by the gum and cheek – an allergic reaction is rare.
