A crown is a single-tooth restoration that caps your existing tooth. A bridge replaces one or more adjacent missing teeth with a prosthetic that literally bridges the gap, held in place at each end by a crown.
Traditional crowns, bridges and partial dentures have to be made in a dental lab. This will require you visit us for dental impressions so that an accurate restoration can be tailor-made to create the perfect combination of function and aesthetics. You will be involved in the process from start to finish and the lab will create a restoration that meets you and your dentist’s requirements in terms of shape and shade.
Before your custom restoration is made at the lab, your dentist will prepare your tooth by filing it down into a smooth shape that correctly accommodates the restoration. Dental impressions will then be made and sent to the lab where your restoration will be made. When it is ready, you’ll return to the dentist to have your crown or bridge cemented in place.
With good oral hygiene, maintenance and regular dental check-ups, your restoration could last upwards of 15 years.
