Crowns are made from metal, ceramic or a combination of the two materials and are used to repair damaged teeth. These are a rather expensive option but the results last up to a decade or even longer with the proper care. Crowns are designed to match the exact same color and appearance of the existing teeth.
Bridges are used as a restorative option for those with missing teeth. Dental bridges come in implant supported or tooth supported varieties. These are effectively used in place of removable partial dentures.
Removable complete dentures
Removable complete dentures are designed as teeth replacements for the whole mouth. These are of great help to those who have lost all of their teeth.
