When the surface structures of teeth become damaged or decayed, it exposes the tooth pulp and root to bacteria and other dangers. To help protect the tooth, dental professionals use artificial caps called crowns. These customised covers fit an existing tooth or partial tooth, covering it entirely and restoring appearance and function.
Dental bridges are alternatives to traditional dentures. Fixed in place or “permanent”, dental bridges utilise crowns to stabilise existing teeth and support replacements. Dental bridges provide an excellent solution for patients looking for minimally invasive or more affordable tooth restoration options.
As with any tooth restoration procedure, crowns and bridges have a lot to offer patients suffering from missing or decayed teeth.
The most important benefit of quality dental crowns and bridges is a restored sense of self-esteem and confidence. Dentists can help patients improve their speech and eating capabilities and overall quality of life by replacing missing teeth.
The risks involved with missing or damaged teeth include bone loss, tooth displacement, and rapid tooth decay. To help prevent these problems, dentists use crowns and bridges to repair and replace teeth, providing lasting oral health.
Dental crowns and bridges are an excellent middle ground between traditional dentures and dental implants. These restoration solutions provide stability and permanence of dental implants without the price tag or the loss of other natural teeth.

Yes! Dental crowns and bridges are customised to fit your teeth and specific bite pattern exactly. Dentists attach these restorations to existing tooth structures using dental cement. For this reason, crowns and bridges work and feel just like natural teeth, providing a comfortable, functioning replacement.
Your dentist will complete dental crowns and bridges over the course of two or more appointments.
To prepare for crowns and bridges, patients can expect a thorough dental examination and appropriate dental imaging during the initial visit. Next, custom crowns and bridges are created in a special dental lab. Next, the dentist safely affixes the prosthetic to natural teeth structures.
Dental bridges are an excellent choice for patients needing dental restoration on a budget. While more expensive than traditional dentures, crowns and bridges are permanent, stable, and more natural-looking. They are often significantly cheaper than the high price of dental implants.
