Crowns and bridges provide very effective solutions for transforming the overall appearance of your smile and can be used for teeth that need a full restoration.

Crowns

For heavily filled or broken teeth that are not going to withstand the effects of biting and chewing, we can offer you a natural-coloured crown. Crowns are used to improve the appearance of the tooth, especially those with large fillings. They also protect the tooth, so it can better withstand the forces of biting and chewing. The crown is placed over the existing tooth but looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth.

There are several options when it comes to choosing the best type of crown for you. We are happy to provide advice and detailed information to help you make the best choice.

Benefits

  • Enhances the appearance of a tooth
  • Can protect and strengthen the tooth
  • Natural-looking
  • Fixed in place
  • Durable
  • Confidence boosting

Bridges

We can join crowns together to replace lost or missing teeth. This is known as a dental bridge. If you feel embarrassed about gaps in your smile, a natural-looking dental bridge can successfully fill in those unsightly spaces and help restore your confidence.

Bridges are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth. They are laboratory-made from ceramics and some metals, and look and feel like a natural tooth.

Benefits

As well as restoring an incomplete smile, bridges can offer a host of other benefits, including:

  • Improving how you eat and speak
  • Enhancing facial contours
  • Distributing the forces in your bite correctly
  • Preventing remaining teeth from moving out of position
  • Improving aesthetics
