Crowns and bridges are the most common restorative procedure in the dental industry. Custom porcelain crowns and bridges restore the look and function of teeth that have been lost or damaged. They also give patients the confidence of a restored smile without more invasive procedures or removal of damaged dentition. We provide dental crown and bridges, see below for more info:
What’s the Difference?
A crown is used to replace a single tooth, while a bridge is used to cover a row of missing teeth.

Why Get Bridges?
If you suffer from a cavity your dentist will remove the decayed part of the tooth and fill the area from where the decayed substance was removed. Fillings are used to repair cracked or broken teeth arising from cavities or from normal wear and tear of the teeth with habits such as nail-biting or tooth grinding.
We use a local anesthetic to numb the area before we fill it. We then test the area to determine if the decay has been effectively removed. The cavity is cleaned to rid the area of any bacteria and debris. The filling is conducted in multilayer process that involves applying tooth-colored material in layers. Each layer is applied and cured with a special light. As the multilayer process is complete, we will then shape the composite material and conduct the final restoration.
Caring for teeth with fillings
Dental veneers are often known as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates. They can be made of porcelain or from resin composite materials. Although both porcelain veneers and resin veneers have their advantages, porcelain veneers mimic the natural light reflecting properties of natural teeth and resist stains better. Veneers last anywhere between 5 and 10 years and need to be replaced after this timeframe.
