Crowns & Bridges

  • A crown will make your tooth strong and give a natural finish
  • You can stop feeling anxious about brocken teeth, teeth that are weakened by decay or very large fillings
  • You can improve the colour and the shape of the tooth or teeth with our dental crowns
  • They are custom made to suit your smile

A dental crown is a custom made cap that covers the entirety of the tooth, from the chewing surface to the gum line, and could be straight forward answer to your problems.

A crown will fit over the remainder of your healthy tooth and will give you strength and shape of a natural tooth. It is colour matched to blend perfectly. You can have more than one crown fitted.

Who needs a crown?

  • You have a weak tooth or teeth that need strengthening
  • You have a discoloured tooth you do not like the look of
  • When part of the tooth has broken away or if a cavity is too large to support a conventional filling.

Procedure

Sometimes an impression is taken at the start, which is used later. After an anesthetic is administered the dentist will file the tooth (if needed) to leave a base to cement the crown on to. An impression will be taken to send to the lab with the colour and material the crown is to made from, as agreed between you & your dentist. If an impression was taken at the start then this will be used to make a temporary crown until the permanent one is fitted.

At the fit appointment the crown will be tried and tested, and if all is well the crown will be permanently cemented to your teeth and you can leave with your new smile.

Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -- these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth - and a false tooth/teeth in between

Procedure

This is the same as for the crown. Sometimes one tooth is used next to the gap or a tooth either side of the gap is used.

When the bridge comes back from the lab it will look like a crown with a tooth attached to it. The crown or crowns are cemented in place, with the tooth in the middle permanently attached and your smile is once more complete.
