Crown & Bridge
Crown & Bridgework are tooth-like ceramic or gold coverings made to protect and secure worn, damaged teeth and/or to replace missing teeth which are made in the laboratory.
A crown is a tooth-shaped helmet placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. Many people call it a cap. Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or severely damaged by decay. As a result, a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth. It also can be used to hold a bridge in place. Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover misshapen or badly discoloured teeth.
A bridge, also known as a fixed removable denture, is made to replace one or more missing teeth. Depending on each individual case a bridge may or may not be suitable.
