Dental Crowns and Bridges are indirect ( laboratory fabricated) restorations which are customised for individual patients. They are a strong and aesthetic way of restoring heavily filled or damaged teeth and gaps.
Crowns restore heavily damaged or unsightly individual teeth. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth, though often as a second resort when considering the benefits of modern dental implants in replacing missing teeth.

CROWN

A crown can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, porcelain over zirconia, monolithic zirconia, composite resin, gold or precious metal alloy, or porcelain fused to metal/gold. To make a crown, we reduce the tooth to the correct shape before taking a detailed impression, in order to allow one of our skilled dental ceramists to fabricate the crown.
For patients with worn, broken down or heavily filled teeth, we often use crowns to rebuild the height, form and function of the teeth whilst making over the shape and shade to create a beautiful, healthy or natural smile.

BRIDGE

A dental bridge involves shaving down and placing two crowns on the teeth either side of the gap, adjoined by a bridge tooth to fill the gap. It is constructed in the same manner as a dental crown in a laboratory.
