Dental Crowns & Bridge

A dental crown is a cap that is cemented on to your prepared existing tooth hence replaces the natural crown. It is often the best way to save a tooth and strengthen it. A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It consists of an artificial tooth anchored to adjacent natural teeth.
