Crowns & Bridges

In dentistry, crowns and bridges refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. A crown can be made to restore an individual tooth damaged by decay or a fracture back to its original form and function. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as "fixed" dentistry as opposed to a restoration of missing teeth with a removable appliance or partial denture

When teeth are heavily decayed they may be too weak to survive with just a filling. By placing a crown, a tooth may be given a new lease of life. Crowns may be made from several different materials, gold and porcelain being the most common types to restore and protect the decayed tooth.

A bridge allows the dentist to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. Basically a false tooth is held in place by being attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. The disadvantage is that the teeth next to the space have to be prepared in a similar way to a crown in order to accept the bridge.
