Crowns And Bridges

Crowns and bridges are a great treatment for restoring strength, structure and aesthetics to a broken or damaged smile…

Dental crowns are generally made of porcelain, and can also be made from alloys (such as gold) or metal. At Simply Dental we use porcelain materials to create dental crowns as this material is:

  • Strong
  • Durable
  • Stain resistant
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Able to be colour matched to the enamel of the tooth
  • Long lasting (10 years with good care)

A dental crown is a ‘cap’ that is placed over a significantly damaged tooth to protect it from further damage and strengthen its internal structure. A crown is usually necessary when a tooth has been severely affected by decay, trauma or after a root canal treatment.

Dental bridges are a great solution to a missing tooth…

Missing teeth can cause a wide variety of issues, and at Simply Dental we can use dental bridges as an alternative to dental implants for a more cost-effective solution to tooth loss. A bridge is basically three (or more, depending on the amount of missing teeth) dental crowns that have been fused together to form one dental appliance. The end crowns then sit over the natural teeth adjacent to the site of the tooth loss for a long lasting restoration.
