What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns, also known as tooth caps, are custom-made covers that encase a damaged or weakened tooth. Crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these, dental crowns serve as a protective shield, restoring the natural appearance and strength of your teeth.
Types of dental crowns
- Porcelain crowns – Ideal for front teeth, porcelain crowns mimic the translucency and colour of natural teeth, providing a seamless blend with your smile.
- Metal crowns – Known for their durability, metal crowns, often made of alloys like gold or silver, are robust and withstand heavy chewing forces. They are suitable for molars.
- Metal-ceramic crowns – These are hybrid crowns where the structure is made from metal alloy, but the substructure is coated with porcelain to improve the aesthetic. Usually, more teeth need to be removed to fit metal-ceramic crowns than metal ones.
- All-ceramic crowns – These crowns are entirely made of ceramic materials, providing a metal-free option with excellent aesthetics, making them a popular choice for visible front teeth.

What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges are custom-made prosthetics designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Comprising artificial teeth (pontics) supported by adjacent natural teeth or dental implants, bridges fill gaps, restore oral function, and improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Types of dental bridges
- Traditional bridges – The most common type, traditional bridges consist of pontics held in place by dental crowns on the adjacent natural teeth.
- Cantilever bridges – Suitable when there is only one adjacent natural tooth, cantilever bridges use a single crown to support the pontic.
- Maryland bonded bridges – Also known as resin-bonded bridges, these utilise metal or porcelain wings bonded to the adjacent teeth, making them a conservative option.
- Implant-supported bridges – Secured to dental implants, implant-supported bridges offer stability and function similar to natural teeth, making them a durable and long-lasting solution.
