A dental crown or bridge is an excellent way to restore the appearance of your smile while protecting your oral health. Our crowns and bridges are individually designed and fabricated from the highest quality porcelain, closely replicating the natural liveliness and shades present in real teeth. Your dental crown or bridge is carefully made to improve the overall shape, size and colour of your original teeth and will blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth.
A tooth might become severely damaged by trauma, decay or can lose a substantial part of its structure after root canal therapy. We also provide crowns as part of dental implant treatment, which covers the implant, completing this procedure.
A crown covers the remaining tooth structure entirely, fitting precisely over the original tooth, sealing it and preventing further infection and decay. Once restored with a dental crown, your tooth will be the right size, shape, and color, and will look and feel entirely natural. You will be able to bite and chew comfortably and smile with complete confidence.
A bridge is used to restore teeth that could not be saved, filling in the gap left behind. It is important to replace teeth that are missing as leaving space can negatively impact your oral health. The adjacent teeth can drift towards the gap, affecting their stability and your bite, and of course your appearance.
A dental bridge can restore one or more teeth missing in the same area of the mouth, using natural teeth for support. When making a bridge, it is necessary to shape the teeth adjacent to the gap so crowns can be made to fit over these teeth. Each replacement tooth is called a pontic and is attached to the dental crowns, forming a strong, durable restoration. Once fitted in the mouth, the bridge is strong enough so you can bite and chew normally and comfortably. The pontic rests on the gums, creating a natural-looking appearance.
The most modern crowns and bridges are made from advanced porcelains that are very different from restorations made even a few years ago. Now, it is possible to have a crown or bridge that is entirely made from porcelain and which provides excellent aesthetics. All-ceramic crowns allow the light to pass through the restoration in a way that is very similar to real teeth. Also, our restorations are made by skilled technicians who will accurately match the shade of your new crown or bridge to your natural teeth. The overall effect is very pleasing and attractive, helping to perfect and protect your smile.
