Crowns and Bridges
The crowns are fitted over the entire surface of a tooth and are recommended when a tooth needs additional support to prevent it from breaking and/or to restore its original morphology. They may be fabricated from various dental materials, from non-precious alloys to gold alloys and/or porcelain (ceramic). The crowns are an indirect type of restoration, meaning that they are made outside the mouth of the patient
A fixed bridge is a dental restoration that is fixed to surrounding teeth. The bridge fills (bridges) the gap left by the missing teeth, preventing the surrounding teeth from moving into the gap and becoming misaligned.
A fixed bridge is less invasive than a dental implant. In cases where the surrounding teeth are strong enough to support the bridge, it is an excellent solution for maintaining jaw-alignment and creating a beautiful smile. Your dentist can craft a bridge that will perfectly match the colour of your surrounding teeth, and shape it to enhance your smile!
