A veneer is a very fine facing of porcelain made by the dental technician in the laboratory which is bonded onto your natural tooth. The primary function is to improve the appearance and they can involve very little preparation of your own natural tooth.

A bridge is used as a permanent replacement for one or more missing teeth. They are both aesthetic and functional, restoring your natural bite and preventing movement of adjacent teeth and over eruption of the tooth opposite the gap. In simple terms they can be viewed as crowns joined together and cemented on the supporting teeth, with a fixed false tooth in between to “bridge the gap”. They are a very desirable alternative to a removable partial denture.
A crown is the ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling, or where a root filling requires protection. The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth.
