Crowns and bridges

Crowns

These are tooth-coloured full porcelain coverings for heavily filled, broken down or cosmetically compromised teeth, usually requiring two visits to the practice. The first appointment involves preparing the tooth, taking an impression and fitting a temporary crown. At the second appointment, we replace the temporary crown with your custom-made laboratory constructed restoration which is then bonded into place. The end result not only looks and feels much better, but also the makes the whole tooth a lot stronger and longer-lasting.

Bridges

Bridges can offer a permanent, natural-looking, long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth. They are bonded securely to the prepared adjacent teeth and can be a superb alternative to dentures for some people. Larger bridges are constructed from porcelain fixed to gold alloy, whilst smaller ones can be made from special reinforced ceramics for even better aesthetic results. Ultimately, the solid, aesthetic and functional result of bridge work can make a dramatic difference to your life: your smile, speech, bite and overall confidence will improve significantly.
