Dental Crowns & Bridges
Restore Your Smile
A crown is an aesthetic covering or a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over another tooth or implant to provide it stability. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. When a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth, a crown is a good option. Crowns are also used to restore the shape and size of chipped or damaged teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
We offer a wide variety in dental crowns and ensure you receive the best possible dental care from the minute you walk through our doors.
When is a dental crown required?
You might need a crown for any of the following circumstances:
- To cover discolored or misshapen teeth
- To support a tooth with a large filling
- To cover a dental implant
- To support a worn out, cracked or broken tooth

Dental bridges are false permanent teeth that are used for filling dental gaps caused by missing teeth. They are usually anchored to the adjacent healthy teeth with cement and resin. The health of the teeth, position, as well as the amount and health of the surrounding bone determines if a dental bridge is suitable to replace missing teeth or if dental implants should be considered.
Removable Bridges or Partial Dentures
Removable bridges (partial dentures) are a more cost effective way of replacing missing teeth. They are held in place with metal clasps that attach to existing teeth. With flexible, translucent, no-metal partials, no one will notice that you are wearing a partial denture.
Dental Implants & Implant Supported Bridges
A better longer-lasting solution for missing teeth!
Dental bridges have been used to replace a person's missing teeth for many years, but their longevity is limited and they are not as durable and stable as dental implants. Bridges also require the cutting down of healthy teeth in order to support them. Recent breakthroughs in advanced, modern dentistry have made dental implants the preferred alternative for replacing missing teeth.
Implant-supported bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but are supported by implants rather than the patient's adjacent teeth. Implant-supported bridges are used when the patient is missing three to more teeth in a row.
Implant-supported bridges are stronger, more durable and can withstand greater bite pressure than traditional bridges.
