Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are advanced forms of restorative dentistry that help to restore health, function and beauty to your smile. Made from quality materials like porcelain and metal alloy, crown and bridge restorations are designed to repair or correct missing and damaged teeth.
A dental crown takes the form of a tooth-like cap and is used to cover the entire tooth – above the gumline – in order to restore the tooth's original form (shape, size, and contour) and reinforce its structural integrity.
The type of materials used in the fabrication of the crown includes gold, monolithic zirconia, stainless steel, composite resin or porcelain. Modern restorations typically use ceramic or porcelain due to their superior aesthetics and durable strength. Although not as natural looking, zirconia and metal restorations are ideal for crowns placed in the molar teeth. Due to their robust nature, such crowns are suitable for daily rugged use for hard chewing and biting.
