Crown and Bridge (and veneers)

Crowns are a porcelain or metal (gold) “cap” that completely encapsulates the tooth. 

The purpose of a crown is to offer as much strength to the tooth that we can.

A bridge is where a false porcelain tooth (pontic) is used to replace a missing tooth by being attached to a crown on the teeth either side of the missing tooth.

A veneer is similar to a false finger nail but made from porcelain and cemented to the front surface of the front teeth. Veneers are commonly used to provide for cosmetic improvement of the front teeth.
