Crowns & Bridges

Porcelain Crowns
Sometiems, teeth are so seriously damaged or deteriorated, rendering them unsuitable for direct placement fillings treatmens.  In such situations, a crown is required to restore the teeth.  A crown is a ‘cap’ that fits over the entire surface of the tooth. The process of making a crown involves trimming the tooth down to the desired shape. Impressions of the tooth preparation are then taken. From the impressions, the laboratory can construct the crown.

Once fabricated, a crown is fitted over the tooth surface and bonded in place using special dental cements. The shape, size, color and surface characteristics of a crown are closely matched to the surrounding teeth. They are fabricated by master ceramists to the highest possible standards and once fitted, provide a seamless and permanent restoration to a tooth.

Crowns can last a lifetime and are necessary for a number of reasons:

  •  To restore heavily broken down teeth
  •  To restore heavily filled teeth
  •  To give form to broken or unusually shaped teeth
  •  To treat discolored teeth

Dental Bridges
If teeth are missing, but either or both sides of the gap remain healthy with well-supported root foundations, then fixed bridge work replacement may be an excellent solution. A dental bridge is ideal when only one or two teeth are missing. They work by placing a artificial tooth, normally made of porcelain, into the gap and bonding it to the teeth on either side.
