Crowns and Bridges
Crowns (sometimes referred to as caps) are used to improve the appearance of teeth or to restore badly broken down teeth when there is insufficient tooth to hold a filling. They can be made of cast gold, ceramic or a combination of both depending upon the specific needs of the treatment. A bridge is a casting used to replace a missing tooth and is attached to teeth next to the gap, by using adhesive attachments or other crowns.
The latest metal free crowns and bridges provide very life-like aesthetics and can transform a smile while strengthening the teeth at the same time. A crown is provided in several stages. After a tooth has been prepared, a temporary crown will be put in place while a dental laboratory manufactures the crown. Temporary crowns are made from a tooth coloured plastic and are designed to last for a short period of time. These crowns can be made to match the proposed final colour and shape of the new teeth. This way you can assess the bite and your new smile at home before the porcelain crowns are made.
