Dental crowns can function like your natural teeth, they are cemented into place and cover teeth if they have been weakened from decay or trauma and can also be used to anchor a bridge.
The porcelain used is the same as that used for veneers so they are strong and also offer an aesthetic natural look. With proper care porcelain crowns will last long into the future as they have a very strong structure and look and feel like your own tooth.
At Firswood Dental we will fit you with a crown that meets your particular needs and budget improving your overall smile, blending with your own teeth.
Dental Bridges look and feel like natural teeth, and used for missing teeth, it bridges the ‘gap’.
A bridge is a fixed prosthesis that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, restoring appearance and function. It acts like an anchor to either side of your natural teeth. This ‘bridge’ is then cemented into position, so that it will blend into your mouth and function just like your natural teeth.
