Crown and Bridge

Crown and BridgeA crown covers your tooth completely and is cemented in place and can be used to restore the front, back or multiple teeth creating improved aesthetics and effective function. Teeth that require crowns are often teeth that have had root canal treatments or have large restorations that compromise the limited remaining tooth structure.

Crowns and bridges are usually made of porcelain and gold alloy. Porcelain is strong and can be made to match the colour of natural teeth. Gold alloy is used for its strength, hardness and durability. It is particularly useful for molars which must withstand the forces of grinding.
