A crown is a dental restoration procedure that rebuilds a tooth, increasing its life and enhancing its function, durability and appearance. It is a common procedure for teeth that are heavily filled, discoloured or have had root canal therapy. They can be made of porcelain, gold, or porcelain fused to gold, depending on the situation and cosmetic considerations. Two appointments are generally required.
A bridge is a procedure for permanently replacing a missing tooth. The results in both appearance and performance are excellent. A bridge procedure involves the fabrication of a porcelain prosthesis, custom-made to perfectly replace the original tooth. This procedure is completed over two visits.
