Crown & Bridges

Crown & Bridges

Crown is a ‘cap’ or cover placed over a tooth to restore its natural shape and function. It is also placed to protect a weakened tooth from damage. 

Bridges are artificial teeth that are fixed to your teeth to replace one or more missing teeth.

When Do I Need a Crown?

  • Your tooth is weakened eg. after root canal treatment
  • Your tooth needs a large filling but there is too little tooth structure to support the filling
  • You have a cracked tooth 
  • Your teeth are severely worn down
  • You want a natural appearance for your poorly-shaped or discoloured tooth

When Do I Need A Bridge?

  • You have one or more missing teeth
  • You have difficulty in eating 
  • You are concerned of your teeth appearance after a tooth is lost

What To Expect When Getting Crowns Or Bridges Done?

The procedure usually requires 2 visits. 

During the first visit, our dentists will shape your tooth, take an impression and place a temporary crown or bridge to cover the tooth. 

Another appointment will be scheduled to place the permanent crown or bridge when it is ready.
