Dental crowns or caps are restorations that cover the entire outer surface of the tooth almost like a glove. Crowns are used to rebuild broken or excessively damaged teeth, strengthen teeth and improve cosmetic appearance. Crowns as well as Bridges are usually made of porcelain and gold alloy or natural looking tooth coloured porcelain ceramic. They are made to match the colour of the natural teeth and are resistant to staining.
Here at Morley Dental Centre our crowns are made from the highest quality dental materials. We liaise closely with a dental laboratory at every stage of fabrication to ensure they provide a perfect fit, colour match and cosmetic result.
Bridges are designed to replace one or more teeth that are usually missing from the individual’s mouth. They consist of an artificial tooth anchored to the natural teeth on each side of the gap – “bridging” them together.
A bridge is ideal when the supporting teeth surrounding the gap are strong and healthy. Missing teeth can also be replaced with Dental Implants.
