Much like our veneers, our Picasso Porcelain crowns and bridges are also made of dental-grade porcelain. While crowns and bridges are sometimes made with other materials, advancements in technology has cemented porcelain's spot as the superior choice. As with veneers, in all of our crown and bridge work, we collaborate closely with our master ceramist to replicate function whilst achieving a natural aesthetic result.
Crowns are designed to protect and cover teeth. They can be placed for multiple reasons:
Reinforce weak teeth
Damaged or broken teeth
Prevent teeth from cracking
Support teeth with large or multiple fillings
Generally protect teeth that have been through root canals
Cover dental implants
Hold an adjacent dental bridge
Smile enhancement through improvement of appearance, shape, or alignment
We take care to design your crowns to suit your face as a whole and to stand firmly with your existing teeth. Whether you are getting a single crown, a combination of crowns and veneers, or a mouth full of crowns, we take a strong aesthetic approach to design your teeth to suit your facial characteristics and your individuality.
A bridge does exactly as the name suggests. Bridges are frequently used to replace missing teeth. The bridge itself is often cemented to the natural teeth alongside of the gap or the implant within the spaces. Missing teeth can ultimately cause the remaining teeth to move or shift into the vacant space, subsequently causing a bad bite and potential misalignment of teeth. Bridges are used to prevent this possibility. They also aid everyday activities like chewing and speaking. If suitable, bridges may be recommended as an alternative option to dentures and implants.
