What is a crown?

Crowns are permanent ‘caps’ that are custom-made to perfectly fit your tooth and shaped like natural teeth. They are usually made of ceramic for front teeth and porcelain or gold for molars. Gold crowns can have a gold or silver appearance. Newer ceramic crowns are strong enough to be used in all areas of the mouth and blend seamlessly with your teeth, avoiding unsightly black lines forming around the margin of the crown.

A Bridge

What is a bridge?

A bridge is a dental device used to fill the gap created by missing teeth with natural-looking replacement teeth. Bridges can prevent common problems associated with missing teeth, such as bite misalignment, tilting teeth, and sagging facial muscles. Dentures or implants may also be recommended by your dentist.

Dental Implants

As well as improving the appearance of your smile, bridges help prevent common problems arising from missing teeth, such as bite misalignment, tilting teeth and sagging facial muscles. On average, bridges may last for ten years and even longer.

How are Bridges fitted?

Bridges are usually made of porcelain and/or metal and designed to match the colour of your natural teeth. False teeth are attached to your natural teeth on either side of the gap, and these natural teeth are prepared for crowns to fit on top. The crowns and false tooth in the centre are permanently attached to create a natural-looking and functional replacement for the missing teeth.
