Crowns and bridges are a wonderful way to restore a smile while protecting your dental health. Our crowns and bridges are made from the highest quality porcelain, providing results that closely mimic the natural liveliness of real teeth. Your new restorations can improve the overall colour, shape and size of your original teeth, helping to perfect your smile.
A crown is used to completely cover up teeth that are badly damaged and where a substantial part of their original structure has been destroyed. Your crown will fit tightly over your original tooth, protecting it and preventing infection. Crowns are also used to cover up dental implants, providing the final part of this restoration.
We can use a bridge to fill in the gap left by one or more missing teeth in the same area in your mouth. To do this, crowns are made to fit over the teeth either side of the gap. The replacement tooth or pontic is attached to crowns covering up the adjacent teeth and this forms a strong and stable restoration. The pontic rests on your gums, providing a natural looking appearance that will blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth.
Modern crowns and bridges are quite different from the restorations of even just a few years ago. Nowadays we can provide you with high quality teeth that are made entirely from porcelain and which are metal free. These can provide the very best aesthetics, allowing the natural light to pass through the crown, just like it does with your real teeth.
