Crowns and bridges
A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been cracked, broken, weakened by decay or heavily filled. We use handmade porcelain crowns to completely cover the visible part of your tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of your natural tooth.
When you have missing teeth replaced by dental implants, a cosmetic crown is made to attach to the implant post, which securely holds it in place. Your crown will be tailor-made to match the colour of your other teeth, giving it a natural appearance that blends in with the rest of your mouth. We take great time and care to ensure we match the colour, lustre and shape of your crown to your natural teeth, so that no one will notice you have missing teeth.
Our crowns are well made and fixed securely, ensuring our results are natural-looking and long-lasting.
If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have one or more teeth that are missing, a good solution is a bridge. A bridge can be used to fill the gap with a replacement tooth or teeth that are made to look like your natural teeth. Replacing missing teeth will improve the way you eat and talk, as well as improving your appearance and smile.
A bridge can also be used to replace several or all of your teeth using dental implants. By placing one or more implants in your jaw, a bridge supporting your replacement teeth can be securely fixed in place. Your replacement teeth will be handmade to match the colour and appearance of your natural teeth, and will look, feel and function just like natural teeth. With a fixed bridge, you will gain the full taste sensation from your meals, as your upper palate remains uncovered. Fixing your bridge with dental implants offers a secure, long-lasting and cost-effective solution to replace your missing teeth.
Once you have a bridge fitted, it is important to take extra care of your dental hygiene, with good brushing and regular check-ups with your hygienist.
