Years of wear and tear, cracks, sudden trauma or even tooth decay can damage your teeth so that further protection is needed. Adding a crown is often the best way to restore or even save a damaged tooth.

What is a Crown?

A crown is an artificial tooth made from strong tooth-coloured materials like ceramics. The colour is customised to match the colour of your natural teeth.

What is a Bridge?

If a tooth is lost then a bridge may be the recommended treatment. A bridge is an artificial tooth attached to crowns and anchored to the surrounding teeth.

The top 5 reasons why you may need crowns or bridges. 

  • To prevent a weakened tooth from splitting or fracturing.
  • To protect a brittle tooth following root canal treatment.
  • To maintain your natural chewing ability
  • To help prevent damage to other teeth.
  • To help prevent other teeth from moving out of place.
