An Effective Way To Enhance The Appearance And Function Of Your Teeth. 

If you have a crack on your tooth or have had root canal treatment done on your tooth, you can protect your entire tooth with a crown.

A crown is like a “helmet” that is placed on the tooth, which provides protection by reducing the risk of the tooth breaking.

Crowns can be joined together as a bridge which can replace missing teeth and restore function.

When Are Dental Crowns, Dental
Bridges Or Dental Veneers Necessary?

Here are some common reasons why a tooth might require a crown:

A dental crown is an artificial covering that is designed to cover a decayed tooth’s original crown.

A dental crown may be necessary to: 

  • Restore the structural integrity of a tooth that has decay covering more than half of its surface. 
  • Reinforce a cracked, or worn down tooth. 
  • Strengthen a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment.
  • Correct tooth alignment or bite. 

What is Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is two or more artificial teeth that are used to fill the gap of missing teeth. They are anchored down by the natural teeth that are adjacent to the missing teeth.  

A dental bridge may be necessary to:

  • Replace multiple missing teeth that are adjacent to each other.
  • Restore a patient’s ability to speak and chew.
  • Prevent the shifting of remaining teeth into the position of missing teeth.

What are Veneers?

Veneers can improve the aesthetics of a patient’s smile and are primarily used for cosmetic purposes to enhance the shape, size, and overall appearance of teeth. It is usually attached to the front of the teeth.

Veneers may be necessary to:

  • Restore discoloured, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth.

  • Close large gaps between teeth.

What Type Of Crowns Are Available?

Depending on the position of the tooth you are replacing, or your general preference, you may choose crowns that are porcelain fused to metal, or full porcelain. 


Step 1:

Diagnostic imaging (X-ray) is used to assess the health of your teeth and oral cavity.

Step 2:

Your dentist will begin by administering local anaesthesia to the region of the affected tooth to make sure the tooth is numb so that the treatment will be pain-free. Any existing decay is removed, and the tooth’s natural crown is reduced, to make space for the artificial crown, bridge, or veneer.

Step 3:

A digital scan is taken of your teeth in order to make an artificial crown, bridge, or veneer. Your dentist will also discuss the appropriate colour for your artificial crown, bridge, or veneer at this stage.

Step 4:

While your permanent artificial crown, bridge, or veneer is being made at a dental laboratory, your dentist will place a temporary crown over your prepared tooth to protect it. 

Step 5:

At your second appointment, your dentist will remove your temporary filling before cementing the permanent crown, bridge, or veneer over your prepared tooth, making adjustments for proper bite where necessary.
