Bridges are ideal for people only have one or two teeth missing and do not want a denture. They can be made by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a false tooth in the middle. They are fixed in the same way as crowns and like crowns, there are a number of options available from all-ceramic or all-porcelain, to metal and porcelain fused to metal bridges.
Bridges can also be constructed to fill gaps without crowning the adjacent teeth. These bridges are less damaging as they are chemically bonded onto sound teeth.
Dental Crowns are an ideal way to restore teeth that have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown is a restoration that fits over the remaining part of your tooth, making it resilient and providing a realistic finish. Crowns can be used to restore teeth that have been broken or that have been weakened by decay.
A crown may also be the ideal solution if you have a discoloured filling and you would like to improve the appearance of the tooth; or if you have had a root filling you may need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth.
During your visit, your dentist will outline the options available to suit your needs and budget, as well as providing you with a bespoke treatment plan. We understand the importance of making our dental care available to everybody – that’s why we offer finance options, to spread the cost of your treatment and monthly plans, to cover the cost of your routine dental care.
