Crowns & Bridges



A crown completely caps a tooth or dental implant. Crowns can be used when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth and can be used to improve the strength and appearance of teeth.

A bridge is a form of cosmetic dentistry used to replace a missing tooth by fusing a false tooth between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by the missing tooth or teeth.

Dental Bridges


If you need to replace a missing tooth, then a dental bridge is a good option to consider. 

The most common types of dental bridges are:

1. Fixed Bridge

The most common type of dental bridge is the fixed bridge. Your teeth on either side of where your missing tooth is located will be ‘crowned’ and linked together with a crown in the gap. The alternative option to this will be to consider a dental implant.

 2. Cantilever Bridge
The cantilever bridge is similar to the fixed bridge but only has one anchoring tooth instead of two.
 3. Maryland Bridge
This type of bridge can only be used for front teeth and is a good option for children. The maryland bridge is glued or bonded to adjacent teeth to the gap by using ceramic or metal ‘wings’.
