Crowns & Bridges
A crown covers the tooth and is often the best way of protecting heavily filled teeth from breaking. They can also improve the appearance of misshapen and discoloured teeth.
A crown is colour matched to your existing teeth.
We offer three types of crowns, full gold crowns, porcelain bonded to metal and all porcelain crowns for a more natural smile.
A bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth by using the teeth either side of the gap. It is made in exactly the same way as a crown with the same materials.
A fixed bridge is the most commonly used type of bridge. It consists of a supported false tooth fused between two crowns that are anchored on the neighbouring teeth or implants. Bridges can be either porcelain bonded to metal or all porcelain. These are fixed and cannot be removed.
An adhesive bridge needs minimal preparation. A metal wing with a false tooth attached to it, is bonded to the back of the tooth next to the gap.
