Crowns and Bridges

Crowns (or Caps) are coverings that can be cemented over the top of real teeth in order to increase the strength or improve the appearance of teeth. There are many types ranging from completely tooth coloured ceramic crowns which look just like real teeth, to gold crowns which can be used on back teeth which don’t show.

On back teeth, a crown is indicated if a tooth has been heavily filled, often for a number of years, and the tooth is in danger of breaking or cracking. This is particularly true of root filled teeth. In addition to strengthening the tooth they also improve it cosmetically.

Crowns are usually placed on front teeth because the teeth have become weak or unsightly due to visible fillings or fracturing, or because of major problems with the appearance of the teeth.

Bridges are crowns which are joined together so that they can span a gap where there are missing teeth. In this case only the teeth which support the end crowns really exist.
