Crowns & Bridges

A beautiful smile is a reflection of you!

Restorative dentistry seeks to improve the function and appearance of damaged teeth as well as to replace missing teeth. There are many different dental treatments which may be classified as restorative. Most common among these are crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures.

What is a crown?

If a tooth has been broken, or weakened by a lot of decay or a large filling, a crown can be fitted. Your dentist will match the artificial crown up to the shape and colour of your other teeth so that it looks natural and beautiful. The crown will last for many years, depending on the health of the tooth underneath.

What are bridges?

A bridge consists of artificial teeth which are permanently fixed to healthy supporting teeth on either side of the gap. It is used to replace missing teeth, restoring appearance and function. A bridge can be made from either porcelain, metal or both. When preparing a conventional bridge, Dr. Mosco needs to prepare the teeth on either side of the gap so that they will successfully hold the bridge in place.
