Crowns and Bridges
Commonly known as caps, crowns preserve a damaged or cracked tooth to maintain functionality and aesthetic of a tooth with excessive decay or weakened by root canal therapy. Crowns come with different designs and materials they are made from. Crowns should be customised for each individual’s need.
A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of a gap (a missing tooth or teeth). They are anchoring teeth and are called abutment teeth with a false tooth or teeth in between. These are called pontics.
Missing teeth can adversely affect the functionality and appearance of your smile. Missing teeth can cause a change in your bite, shifting of the teeth, jaw joint disorder (TMJ), an increased risk for periodontal disease, speech impediments and a higher chance of tooth decay.
