Our teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and with an excellent oral regimen and regular dental visits, this is possible. However, sometimes life gets in the way and derails our plans for maintaining optimal oral health.

Over time, our teeth can become worn, discoloured or even damaged. This is especially true if we have poor oral hygiene, certain lifestyle habits or medical conditions, or if we experience dental trauma or injury to the mouth. 

At Garden City Implant Dental, we provide comprehensive dentistry to restore the appearance and function of a patient's smile. Among our restorative treatments are dental crowns and dental bridges. Depending on your unique situation, Dr James Wong can determine which restoration best satisfies your needs and expectations. 

Dental Crowns Are Versatile Restorations

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over an existing tooth. We commonly use dental crowns to protect and restore cracked or decayed teeth. But we can also use them to cover up discolouration, stabilise a person's bite or equalise the aesthetics of one's smile. 

A crown may be a viable solution when someone suffers from a condition such as dental decay or tooth loss. 

At Garden City Implant Dentistry, we customise aesthetic dental crowns to complement your teeth's shape, size and shade. 

A dental crown can: 

  • Protect cracked or chipped teeth
  • Strengthen weak and brittle teeth
  • Hold a broken tooth together
  • Conceal stains and discolouration
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Top off a dental implant  

Dental Bridges Replace Missing Teeth

Dental bridges are required when two or more teeth are missing. A bridge fills in the spaces between teeth, resulting in a complete set of pearly whites. 

Dental bridges can:

  • Fill in the gaps in your smile
  • Restore your ability to chew 
  • Improve speech and pronunciation 
  • Support the position of remaining teeth
  • Prevent further tooth loss
