Crowns

What is a Dental Crown?

A crown is a fixed unit that that replaces the lost portion of the tooth which is visible in the mouth. They are used to restore a broken, weakened or heavily filled tooth. They are also used to improve the appearance of discoloured or crooked teeth although this option is more destructive than a veneer or direct bonding. Crowns may be made of different materials such as pure metals or porcelain (which is tooth coloured) or a mixture of both.

Once the tooth has been prepared, an impression is taken by the dentist, which is then sent to the laboratory for the crown to be made. This usually takes about 1 week, and during this time the dentist will place a temporary crown to protect the tooth

Why might I need crowns?

If your tooth has undergone significant decay and there is not enough tooth structure remaining to support a filling or an inlay and maintain functionality.

If a large portion of your tooth has fractured and it cannot be built up using traditional composite bonding techniques.
If you have a large cavity and opt for the additional protection a crown offers to your tooth over a large composite filling or an inlay.
If you have had a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, a crown will be fitted to the abutment of the titanium implant.
For cosmetic reasons, to improve the aesthetics of your smile, you may opt for all porcelain cosmetic crowns.

Bridges

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are custom fit/bespoke ceramic teeth, which are anchored onto neighbouring teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. The ceramic tooth is known as a pontic and is fused in between two teeth or crowns that serve as anchors by attaching to the teeth on each side of the ceramic tooth, thereby bridging them together.
