Dental Crowns and Bridges at KR Dental

Two of our popular restorative dental services include crowns and bridges, as we endeavour to help you achieve a stronger, beautiful, and more functional smile. All of our restorative appliances are made using safe, trusted, and durable materials, leaving you with a crown or bridge that you’ll absolutely love.

Dental Crowns

Trauma, decay or the need for root canal treatment may severely weaken a tooth, however this is where a crown can come to the rescue. A crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that fits over the existing tooth structure and replaces the missing natural crown structure, helping to both strengthen and save it.

Crowns are usually made of either porcelain or porcelain fused to gold, whilst being made to match the colour of your natural teeth for a seamless smile.

There are many reasons why a dentist may recommend a dental crown, including:

  • To strengthen a cracked tooth
  • To protect a tooth’s structure if it has suffered from bad decay
  • To restore a tooth that has been grinded or worn down
  • To support a tooth that contains a large filling
  • To hold a dental bridge
  • To improve the appearance of a tooth (i.e. if it is extremely discoloured or misshapen)
  • To assist a dental implant

Dental bridges are quite different to crowns, as their aim is to replace a single or several missing teeth. The bridge is actually secured by crowns which are attached to the healthy natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth (or teeth).

When a tooth is lost through trauma or cannot be saved by root canal treatment, a bridge is one of the possible solutions. This procedure allows our dentists to successfully restore the function and aesthetic of a patient’s smile, giving them plenty of reasons to feel confident once again.
