Crown & Bridge

Crown & Bridge

When a tooth has a large enough hole or has had root canal therapy, sometimes the best way to restore the tooth and protect in for the long term is to place a crown on top. This holds the underlying tooth structure together and prevents further break down.

​Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. The teeth on either side are reduced and 3 crowns are bonded together and cemented in as one unit. The disadvantage of this method is that 2 teeth which may not require any treatment are reduced and covered with a crown. A more conservative approach is usually placement of an implant.
