What is a Crown and Bridge

Tooth Coloured Crown

Gold Coloured Crown

Crown and bridges are fixed to existing teeth or implants.

Basically a crown is like a “cap” that sits over and is glued to a damaged tooth or a placed implant.

When used on a damaged tooth it strengthens the tooth against cracking and breaking, it can also be used to improve the appearance or the colour and shape as well as a tool for the dentist to use to straighten the alignment of a mildly crooked tooth and is another alternative to having braces in some cases.
