Dental Crowns and Bridges in Auckland
Dental Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
A full dental crown is a type of dental restoration that completely covers or “caps” a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity poses a threat to the continued health of a tooth.They are usually bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
Crowns can be made from many materials, and are usually created using indirect methods. This means it is fabricated in a dental laboratory by a dental technician. Choices of materials range from full metal, metal and porcelain and full porcelain. Each type of crown comes with their own set of indications and contraindications.

Dental Bridges are a long term solution that can help prevent the cycle of problems that occur when just one tooth is missing, such as shifting and drifting of remaining teeth, decay and periodontal bone loss. They are often used as an alternative to Dentures. Bridges are a natural-looking artificial tooth that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, Bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.
When a lost tooth is replaced with cemented bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one may be prepared as Crowns to serve as abutments, to hold the Bridge in place.
