Missing teeth used to be a lifelong problem. Now natural-looking porcelain crowns and bridges can be a replacement option for all. At Pembroke Dental we can expertly fill gaps with permanent, beautiful replacement teeth. When a tooth begins to decay, a filling is usually the first course of action. If there is a large area of decay, a tooth is substantially damaged, or if large fillings have to be repeatedly replaced, a crown is often the best option to adequately support and protect the damaged tooth. However, if the tooth cannot be saved, we can offer a bridge as a replacement option, where a custom-made tooth is attached to the surrounding teeth.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is perfectly matched to your mouth in terms of size and colour. It is placed over the tooth for protection and strength, retaining your original tooth underneath.
