Crown & Bridges (PBM, Zi-Porc, Fibre-Bridges)

A crown is used to protect a broken down or fragile tooth, or to improve a tooths cosmetic appearance. The visible surface of the crown is made from porcelain, so it has a very lifelike appearance, and thus matches with the colour of the rest of your teeth. Crowns are also recommended for teeth which have had root canal treatment, to protect the tooth from fracturing. Your dentist can discuss with you whether a particular tooth is suitable for a crown.

Bridges are similar to crowns and can be used to close the gap between two teeth. They are permanently placed in the mouth and can give you the confidence to eat and speak comfortably.


Your dentist can discuss with you whether a particular tooth is a suitable candidate for a crown, bridge or Veneer.

  • What are the worst foods and drinks for your teeth?
    Generally foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid are harmful to tooth enamel. Acidic foods and drinks (soft drinks, citric juices, sports drinks) can cause tooth erosion while high sugar content is more likely to contribute to tooth decay (cavities).
