Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges play a vital role in restorative dentistry, offering effective solutions to restore damaged or missing teeth. A crown is a custom-made cap that covers a damaged tooth, protecting and strengthening it while restoring its functionality and aesthetics. Crowns are commonly used to treat teeth with extensive decay, fractures, or those that have undergone root canal therapy. They are crafted from durable materials like ceramic, porcelain, or metal alloys, ensuring a natural appearance and long-lasting durability.

On the other hand, bridges replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. The artificial teeth, known as pontics, bridge the gap created by missing teeth, helping to restore a complete and functional smile. Bridges are designed to match natural teeth’ colour, shape, and size, providing seamless integration and enhancing the patient’s overall oral health.

Both crowns and bridges offer numerous benefits in restorative dentistry. They improve the appearance of damaged or missing teeth and enhance oral functionality, including biting, chewing, and speaking. Additionally, they help prevent the shifting of adjacent teeth, maintain proper jaw alignment, and distribute the forces exerted during dental functions. Restoring damaged or missing teeth, crowns, and bridges improves patients’ overall well-being, boosting their confidence, comfort, and oral health.
