Crowns are used to cover or cap a damaged tooth and to strengthen and enhance the appearance of teeth that are weak. Crowns are a tooth-shaped covering which is placed over the tooth where a normal filling would not be strong enough. All crowns are custom designed and are made to look like the original tooth or even better.
At Auckland Dental Group, we can provide One Visit Crowns. This is a proud NZ invention which may be right for you.
If you are missing one or more teeth you may need a bridge. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to drift, rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. This can also lead to gum disease and jaw joint disorders.
A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap.
