Restoring dental function

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns

Crowns are used to restore worn or broken teeth where simple fillings are not suitable. Crowns can restore function and protect the underlying root structure form further damage. Crowns can now be made to look like natural teeth and can be metal free for superior aesthetics.

Crowns are also used on teeth after root canal treatment to protect from further damage. The tooth is prepared and impressions taken before a skilled technician makes the crown which is then fitted with a strong cement at the next visit.

Bridges

Bridges are used to fill gaps or spaces where teeth have been lost. Bridges again can be metal free for superior aesthetics and a natural looking smile. The adjacent teeth are prepared and impressions are taken before fitting at the next visit.

An initial assessment of the health of the teeth and analysis of the way the teeth meet prior to constructing a bridge will be necessary.
