Crowns & bridges

A dental crown is a prosthesis similar to a cap with the same shape as a natural tooth. They are usually covered by abrasion-resistant ceramic and can reproduce the shape and colour of natural teeth. Being placed on top of the natural tooth, the crown covers and protects a tooth that is significantly damaged by a cavity or fracture.

The tooth then regains its initial shape and full function.

Several crowns can be linked together by artificial elements replacing missing teeth: these are called bridges. The abutment teeth are covered and protected by the crown and support the artificial tooth. The artificial element is suspended between the two abutment teeth.
