Crowns, Bridges and Veneers
Some times in order to save a decayed or broken tooth, placing a crown over the top is the only solution.
Essentially a crown is an artificial cap over the remaining tooth that protects it from further damage.
Much like veneers, crowns restore or improve the appearance of teeth they strengthen and enable greater function of previously damaged teeth. A crown is larger than a veneer and usually covers the whole surface of the tooth.
We match the crown to the rest of your teeth, so that it looks as natural as possible. Crowns are carefully created so they are the correct shape and colour. Your original tooth may need to be reduced in size so that the crown can be placed properly.
Crowns can help to save an otherwise heavily decayed tooth.
Veneers are thin, custom-made tooth-coloured surfaces that are bonded to the front of teeth. They are considered a cosmetic treatment, and mimic the appearance of natural teeth whilst improving their colour, shape, size or length.
Ceramic and porcelain Crowns are made by our Amazing Dental Technicians, a highly skilled and intense process ensuring you receive the very best quality and appearance possible. One that is a result of many years of training and focusing on their craft.
Composite veneers however are done by the dentist in the chair and are skilfully shaped and colour matched to give you the best possible outcome. They are directly bonded to the tooth by the dentist in just one visit, making the perfect solution if budget and time are a consideration for you.
So if you are looking for a more cost-effective and instant treatment solution, composites may be the way to go.
Apart from the cost factor, perhaps the only disadvantage of porcelain or ceramic veneers is that they cannot be repaired. Once chipped or broken, porcelain veneers need to be replaced.
Whichever material you choose, both porcelain and composite veneers can offer an effective and aesthetically pleasing smile makeover without the need for complex surgery – which already gives you something to smile about!
Dental Bridges are made by placing two crowns on teeth surrounding a gap in your smile.
The process for bridges is much the same as crowns. Two abutments are prepared for the procedure, and a mould and colour match is taken. After the bridge has been created, it’s placed and adjusted giving you a complete and beautiful smile.
Today’s bridges are usually made out of porcelain or ceramic fused to metal. They are often a more affordable option when compared to Implants
We match the crown to the rest of your teeth, so that it looks as natural as possible. Often we are able to improve on the look also. This means that the crown is carefully created so it is the correct shape and colour. Your original tooth may need to be reduced in size so that the crown can be placed properly.
