Modern dental advances provide a host of options for replacing missing teeth-from traditional dentures to crowns & bridges (metal ceramic and metal free ceramics) to the latest dental implants.
Dental crown is a tooth cap placed to cover the tooth to restore its shape, its size and its strength. A Dental bridge is a combination of crowns.
A dental crown may be advised to:
o protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking especially after an Root Canal Treatment
o restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
o cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
o hold a dental bridge in place
o cover misshaped teeth or severely discoloured teeth
o over a dental implant
