Bridges

2



A dental bridge is made up of two anchoring teeth on either side of a gap ­ these are called abutment teeth. Inside the gap sits the false tooth, called a pontic, which can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Adversely, a dental implant can be used to replace multiple teeth without the support of adjacent healthy teeth. Implants are fused to the jawbone and become a permanent fixture, lasting a lifetime with little maintenance required.

Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-­shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a natural tooth above the gum line. Their purpose is to restore the natural tooth’s shape and size, strength, and to improve its appearance.
