Crowns and Bridges

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through wear and tear, fractures, accidents or disease. Often problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Materials used in these repairs are either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to metal. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth or where teeth have been broken away through excessive wear or as the result of old fillings breaking down, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution. It is recommended that all root canalled teeth be crown to protect the integrity of the tooth.
