We pride ourselves on our warm, friendly welcome and the excellent standard of care and treatment from our highly experienced dental team.
A dental crown is a tooth shaped “cap” placed over the tooth, to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.
Crowns are required to protect a weak tooth, such as a tooth with a crack in it; to restore a broken tooth, or to cover & support a tooth with a large filling. They can also be used to cover a discoloured tooth.
Crowns can be made or porcelain, metal or both. New ceramic crowns can mimic the translucency of natural teeth & are very strong.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth.
They are made by placing crowns on teeth either side of a gap & then joining these crowns together with a false tooth in the space. They are connected together & cemented permanently.
Another option is an adhesive bridge. This has “wings” that are bonded to the back of the teeth adjacent to the gap. Very little drilling is needed.
