Crowns & Bridges

Repair your smile with crowns and bridges

When teeth weaken, break or fail, there are many techniques we can use to repair and preserve them. Crowns and Bridges are durable options to restore function, comfort and appearance of failing teeth. We offer a five year guarantee as standard.


Crowns are tooth-shaped caps which sit on top of damaged teeth. Dental crowns are used to strengthen and improve the look of weakened, damaged or broken teeth. They are carefully shaped to sit perfectly on top of your existing teeth, and coloured to match your natural smile. The accurate fit of dental crowns ensures that they sit comfortably in the mouth and function just like natural teeth.

Once cemented permanently in place, the crown is indistinguishable from a real tooth. It’s a simple way to restore the look and function of failed teeth whilst also protecting them from further damage.

If you experience the upset of a missing tooth, and if the neighbouring teeth and gums are strong enough, a bridge can be a fixed solution to your problem. Bridges restore your smile by getting rid of gaps. And they also play an essential role in maintaining general oral health by restoring the bite function and preventing neighbouring teeth from crowding into the space left behind.

There are several types of dental bridges to choose from. Our experienced team can talk you through the options and let you know which type will work best for you.

From £610


Crowns and Bridges are often used in combination to restore smiles that have gradually broken down over time.


We’ll start with a consultation to discuss the pros and cons of each material on offer. Our team can help you to decide which type of treatment is right for you.


We’ll then prepare the existing tooth or teeth by reshaping, so the crown or bridge can be fitted. Then we’ll take a digital scan of your newly sculpted tooth to send to our laboratory. You’ll also be fitted with a temporary crown or bridge until your permanent replacement arrives.


We’ll remove the temporary crown or bridge and apply the permanent one by cementing it in place. That’s all there is to it!

Dental Bridges - Your Options

There are several types of dental bridges to choose from. Don’t worry if this all sounds a little technical – our experienced team can talk you through the options and let you know which type will work best for you.

Traditional Bridge

We use these when there are healthy teeth on either side of the gap to rely on for support. We may fit crowns to strengthen them before installing your new prosthetic tooth. Traditional bridges are typically made from ceramics or porcelain which can fuse to metal.

Cantilever Bridge

If there is a healthy tooth only on one side of the gap, all is not lost. A cantilever bridge is similar to a traditional bridge. However, it relies on just one adjacent tooth for support.

Maryland Bonded Bridges

These are sometimes referred to as resin-bonded bridges and can be made from a combination of porcelain, metal, plastic and resin. They are fixed to the adjacent teeth using porcelain or metal wings.

I recently had treatment for composite bonding, which involved removing and refitting a permanent retainer that I had on my teeth prior to this.... Claire was absolutely amazing!! Throughout every appointment she was extremely comforting and made sure I was always okay and understood what was going. Most of all, Claire’s attention to detail was brilliant, she really went above and beyond with every detail and did an amazing job on my teeth. Cannot recommend Claire and Finkle Hill enough!read more

As a patient who is very scared of the dentist, Claire has worked hard to support me and ensure I feel comfortable during every visit. I've had all... sorts of treatments over the past year and although I've felt nervous, Claire & the team have done everything possible to make me feel as comfortable as possible.

Referred to Matthew Gahan at Finkle Hill for a particularly tricky root canal treatment of a long, twisted molar root. I'm a bit of a nervous patient... especially where needles are concerned, but right from walking in the door, all of the Finkle Hill team I encountered were friendly and positive. While root canal work is never going to be the happiest time of your life, Matthew and his dental nurse were both superbly calming and reassuring, from introductions and an initial chat about the work needed, helping me through the anaesthetics process, and then keeping me informed about what they were doing and checking I was comfortable through the full two hours of treatment. I felt very well looked after, and while that sort of intensive dental work is never going to be 'pleasant', Matthew and team made it as easy and painless - physically and emotionally - as it possibly could more

I’m so grateful for the Finkle hill team especially Dr Matthew Gahan. I’ve been to other dentists before and they don’t compare. I was super nervous... and scared before my treatment but Matt and the dental nurse made me feel safe and taken care of. He explained everything well and is very kind.Thank you Matt & the more
