Crowns replace tooth structure that is damaged, decayed or aesthetically unacceptable by completely covering the affected tooth. They may be placed for aesthetic or functional reasons – to amend the tooth shape, size or strength. Crowns are quite often used to strengthen teeth that have had root canal treatment as these teeth are more brittle and likely to fracture.
At Definitive Dental we can match your Porcelain Crown to the exact colour, and translucency as your natural teeth. They look and feel natural so no one will even know you have them.
A bridge is a permanent, fixed prostheses which is commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They work by filling gaps with a crown like tooth which is supported by two crowns on adjacent teeth. They are a long term solution that will improve both the health and appearance of your smile. Your Bridge will prevent other teeth from shifting out of place, enhance the aesthetic appearance of your smile and you will be able to eat and speak as you did previously.
