Crowns are often the best way of covering teeth that have been cracked, or weakened by decay or heavily filled. There are a variety of materials that can be used. We work closely with our laboratories to create hand-made, tailor-made, crowns that will match the colour of your other teeth.
Crowns can be used to improve your smile or to protect your teeth from breaking or fracturing. This is especially true of teeth that have been root filled.
We can also remove the black line that patients may have on older crowns by replacing these with newer cosmetic, all porcelain ones.
A bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth by using the teeth on either side of the gap. They are made with the same materials as crowns and, as with crowns, match the colour of existing teeth. In some cases minimal tooth preparation is required when using adhesive bridges.
We will always look for the most minimalist approach when treatment planning.
