What is a Dental Crown and Bridge and how is it used with Implants?
The implant and mini implants are inserted into your jaw bone; whereas the dental crown and bridge refers to the covering that is placed on top of the dental implants, giving you the look and feel of natural looking teeth.
A crown is used when you are replacing only a single missing tooth, whereas a dental bridge is used when you have several missing teeth leaving large gaps between other teeth.
The dental crown and bridge is a strong and durable replacement option and is made from various materials including porcelain ceramic compounds, gold and metal alloys. These materials are stained to colour match the rest of your teeth, to ensure that the artificial teeth that are used to replace your missing teeth are discreet and virtually undetectable to the scrutiny of others.
