What are crowns and bridges?
Your teeth and smile age naturally. With the passage of time sometimes there is trouble with missing teeth, decay or old fillings. These occurrences can have quite the impact on both your smile and your oral health. These are both ways to restore lost, missing, decayed or damaged original teeth by repairing and correcting structural problems. The purpose of a crown is to rebuild a tooth, or teeth to its original form. The purpose of a bridge is to replace one or more missing teeth.
Veneers are thin custom-made restorations that are bonded to the surface of your natural teeth. They are fitted to the contour of your teeth, instantly correcting the look of the tooth while also providing strength and resilience.
Patients choose veneers as a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of their teeth, to straighten their smile, and quickly correct issues such as discolouration, fractures, and chips. Designed to also close gaps and correct tooth misalignment, veneers are considered a less intrusive treatment option than crowns or braces.
