Crowns or caps are prostheses that are generally used to restore a severely broken down teeth back into form and function or to improve the appearance of front teeth by changing their shape and colour. Crowns can be placed on singular teeth or individually on multiple teeth allowing you to floss them as you would normal teeth.
Bridges are an extension of crowns that are utilised to replace missing teeth. Generally, a crown is placed on the teeth on either side of the gap with a fake tooth connecting them together. Unlike dentures, bridges are glued to the underlying tooth so they cannot be removed. Special cleaning technique need to be undertaken to keep the gums and teeth supporting the bridge healthy.
Dental Implants consist of a small Titanium screws that are placed in the bone that can be used to replace singular teeth to complete arch dentures.
Dentures are a lab made prosthesis that can be used to replace from 1 tooth (spoon denture), to several (partial denture - as pictured below), to 32 teeth (complete upper and lower dentures).
Dentures are designed to be removed to facilitate cleaning and allow the gums to rest and repair.
