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.
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.
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.
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.
