Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also commonly called a cap is a restoration which covers the entire tooth. It is a one piece structure that sits over the tooth providing structural support and has the appearance of a natural tooth.

Dental Crowns can be made from a variety of differing substances. Selection of a particular type of crown should be based upon factors such as function, strength and aesthetics. All-ceramic crowns are the restoration of choice for cosmetic dentistry because they are similar in look to that of natural teeth enabling a very desirable effect.

Dental Bridges

Bridging is an alternative method of replacing missing teeth. To construct a bridge, adjacent teeth are reduced to allow crowns to be fitted and the bridge span is then attached.

If you are suffering from missing or damaged teeth and feel that crowns or bridges may be the answer, contact our friendly team at The Dental Practice in Bathurst to arrange a consultation.
