A dental crown is a cap that covers over a weakened or broken tooth to restore its’ strength and appearance. Crowns have evolved a lot in the last generation with technological improvements in the choice of materials used. In the hands of a master dental ceramist, truly exquisite natural and life-like works of art can be achieved to create beautiful looking teeth.
When a gap is created following the loss of a tooth, one option of replacing the missing tooth is to have a bridge made. Bridges can be done when there are teeth or implants either side of the missing tooth. The bridge consists of a false tooth connected to a dental crown at either end. It is attached permanently and is very strong. Quality bridgework looks great and can last well over a decade.
