Dental Crowns

Dentists use dental crowns to restore the function of your teeth, while ensuring the natural aesthetics are maintained. A dental crown (or cap), is a hollow artificial tooth that is used in place of a broken or damaged tooth, and functions as a protective cover against further damage or decay of the tooth. A crown looks very much like the natural tooth in terms of shape and color.

Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns may be the ideal treatment option when previous fillings have broken and fillings have become too large or unstable. Crowns can also be done to improve the esthetics especially in cases where the teeth may be malformed, mispositioned or discolored. Also, teeth can be become more brittle following root canal treatment, so crowns are an ideal way to help protect and strengthen the teeth to ensure a longer lifespan.

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, both tooth-colored and metal. These materials can include porcelain, Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and full-cast metal. If you need a dental crown, we will complete a comprehensive assessment to determine what the best material would be for your specific case. This assessment includes looking at numerous factors such as esthetics, where your tooth is positioned, whether there are extra forces being placed on the teeth from habits such as grinding, and of course, your personal preference.


Missing teeth can  affect your smile, and they can also lead to a number of dental issues such as misalignment, an inability to bite properly, and in some cases even affect your speech. A dental bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to replace the teeth that are missing. A bridge is a very effective solution, and will ensure that your teeth remain in great condition.

How Do Bridges work?

A dental bridge uses the teeth on either side of a missing tooth and connects them together. It is permanently fixed in place in your mouth.

Firstly, the dentist files down the neighboring teeth to make prepare space for the bridge. Secondly, the dentist creates a model of an artificial tooth that fits well inside your mouth. Then this model helps to build the bridge. In the meantime, the dentist places a temporary bridge to inhibit further damage to the exposed tooth. On a following visit, the dentist removes the temporary bridge and places the final one. Finally, the bridge is either cemented or fixed to the dental implants on both sides of the missing tooth.
