Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or a dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.They are typically bonded to the tooth using a permanent cement.

Crowns are used to restore teeth that are fractured, severely decayed, or if there is very little tooth structure remaining for example after Root Canal Therapy.

A bridge otherwise known as a Fixed Partial denture comes under a branch of dentistry known as Prosthodontics. The major function of the Dental Bridge is to fill the gap between teeth generated due to the missing of one or more teeth. A bridge is created of two crowns for the teeth on each side of the gap and the gap itself is filled by a false tooth/teeth.
