Crowns & bridges are a long-term solution to protect a weak tooth
A dental crown or ‘cap’ may be suggested by your dentist as a long-term solution to protect a weak tooth. Teeth with large fillings, or teeth that have been previously root canal treated, become fragile and may need the support of a crown to protect the tooth from breaking in the future. Your dental crown will be permanently cemented, and with good maintenance can be expected to last 15 years or longer.
A dental bridge is a fixed restoration used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The artificial tooth is supported by crowns fixed to your natural teeth. Like crowns, bridges are permanently cemented and require good regular care to ensure their longevity.Talk to our team today
