Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and dental bridges are an effective cosmetic procedure to replace imperfections and other visible damage to your teeth. A dental crown will coat the affected tooth’s visible area. This reliable procedure can both improve appearance and the strength of the underlying tooth.
There are multiple reasons why wear on the teeth can arise. These include prolonged grinding of the teeth over time, unsuitable bite, tooth decay, old fillings, or the natural aging process. As a result, your teeth can begin to deteriorate, crack or even break. Crowns are a productive route in restoring symmetry and creating a pleasing appearance, while also adding stability and strength to broken-down teeth. They can conceal misshapen, discoloured, chipped and otherwise imperfect teeth.
A dental crown is usually made from porcelain, resin, gold, or metal. We will assess your problem that needs correcting to recommend the correct crown for you. Some are more durable than others.

PFM Dental Crown
A PFM crown is cap that is cemented over a natural tooth in order to protect it from damage or further decay. The first PFM crown was invented in the 1960s. Since then, PFM has been used successfully in dentistry for the fabrication of dental crowns and bridges. The fact that PFM restorations have been around for so long show that they are a dependable choice for restoration fabrication.
Zirconia Dental Crown
Zirconia crowns are made from zirconium dioxide, a very durable type of metal that’s related to titanium, although it’s categorized as a type of ceramic crown. One of the biggest advantages of zirconia is its strength and durability. Consider how much force your back teeth exert on the food that you chew.
