Restore Your Smile with Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
Your teeth depend on one another to eat and speak. Damage to one tooth may compromise the health of the others. Chewing may become difficult or your smile may change. A simple crown can restore your mouth and smile to its normal state. Cosmetically, crowns are a very popular choice as they can help achieve an amazing cosmetic result.
A Crown is a strong porcelain cover that is placed on an individual tooth to restore a decayed or damaged tooth to its normal size. Occasionally, they can consist of gold covered with porcelain when a higher degree of strength is required. They are used when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a regular filling or to protect cracked or broken teeth. They can also be used to protect and strengthen teeth that have undergone Root Canal Treatment or to change the shape of your tooth to correct a bite or cosmetic problem, to replace an existing or a poorly fitting crown.
Bridges fill gaps left by missing teeth that can dramatically improve your smile and your overall mouth function. It is now a very affordable option and can be performed under local anaesthetic.
