Restoration

Crowns

A crown is a porcelain or metal case that fits over a tooth. It encases the tooth and completely covers the visible part of the tooth up to the gum line. They are particularly useful for protecting a weak or a very broken down tooth. Many people have root canal treatment which may result in a heavily restored tooth, research has shown that these teeth are best treated long term with placement of a custom made crown.

It only takes two appointments to transform fractured and failing restored teeth back to function.

Bridges

A dental bridge is made by putting crowns on the teeth either side of a gap where a tooth is missing. These two crowns are then joined together by placing a false tooth in the space. This is all made by our local dental laboratory specialists and then the bridge is cemented in place permanently.

Bridges can also be made from porcelain which are metal free. They give a fantastic and natural appearance.

In order for a bridge to be successful you must have good bone support with strong enough teeth to support the bridge.

Discussion with the dental team will help you to make a decision on the best treatment for you. A bridge should last for many years as long it is cleaned daily and your gums are healthy.
