For Protection and Appearance

Crowns - maintaining the tooth foundation

Before we restore a tooth with a crown, we make sure that what is left of the tooth provides a strong foundation to ensure the stability and longevity of the crown.

Crowns are usually made of a porcelain material that is prepared by one of our expert dental laboratories. They are cemented onto the prepared tooth thus returning it to its correct shape and providing long lasting strength.

We take great pride in making sure that all our restorations match and appear as natural as your own existing teeth.

Maintaining your bite and smile

Bridges -spanning the gap

A conventional dental bridge can be an excellent option for replacing missing teeth avoiding dental surgery.

The intended benefits of the procedure include providing you with a fixed replacement of the missing teeth supported by the adjacent teeth, which will also improve their appearance.

Treatment entails the reduction of the dental tooth structure to modify the existing teeth so that the bridge can be placed upon them. Tooth preparation will be done as conservatively as practical. Teeth that are already heavily restored or crowned will not need much preparation.

You will be given the opportunity to take part in approving the appearance of the restorations in place before they are definitively fitted. Using an interim provisional restoration will also help us discuss changes for the definitive bridgework.

Bridges are a suitable solution for:

  • Filling a space to restore or create a more regular appearance
  • To improve the appearance of a badly broken down or heavily filled tooth
  • If the teeth are highly discoloured or stained
  • Poorly positioned teeth can be built forward
  • To support the end/s of a bridge which is replacing other missing teeth.

This patient had lost her confidence when smiling and also had trouble eating, as the teeth in her upper jaw were limiting her ability to bite properly.

We provided this patient with a porcelain bonded bridge on her upper jaw that not only reestablished her appearance, but also completely changed the function of her bite and oral health. On her lower jaw, we placed two dental implants to support a 4 tooth bridge.
