4. Crowns & Bridges

Crowns

This is a porcelain cap that sits over the tooth to reduce the chance of tooth fracture. It is required when a tooth has become heavily restored and thus susceptible to splitting or when a tooth has had root canal therapy. 

 

This is conducted over two visits, the first to prepare the tooth for a crown and the second to glue the crown in place.

Bridges

A bridge is a fixed solution that replaces one or more teeth. These are two or more crown connected together and placed over existing teeth. Bridges require extra oral hygiene for maintenance.
