About Crowns, Bridges & Veneers

A crown is a durable cover for a tooth that protects it from breaking. It can be made of porcelain, gold or a combination of both. It is recommended when a tooth has been damaged, has fractured, has had large amounts of decay or has lost a large piece.

Many teeth that have had root canal treatment should be crowned because they can become more likely to fracture/break with time.

When a bridge is needed to replace a missing tooth, two crowns on either side of the gap will anchor the replacement tooth (pontic). This process generally requires two visits. The first to prepare the tooth for the crown and the second to firmly cement the crown on the prepared tooth. With proper care crowns last many years.

A veneer is a thin restoration fabricated from composite or ceramic material
and bonded to the front surface of a tooth/teeth to improve the appearance of discoloured or crooked teeth.
