Years of wear and tear, cracks, sudden trauma or even tooth decay can damage your teeth so that further protection is needed. Placing a crown is often the best way to restore or even save a damaged tooth.

A crown is an artificial tooth made from strong tooth-coloured materials like ceramics. The colour is customised to match the colour of your natural teeth. Some crowns can also be made from gold. Crowns can prevent a weakened tooth from splitting or fracturing, protect a tooth following root canal treatment.

If a tooth has been lost, then sometimes a bridge may be the recommended treatment to replace the tooth. A bridge is an artificial tooth attached to crowns and anchored to the surrounding teeth.
