Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold.
A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution where accidental damage has occurred resulting in lost teeth or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking.
