Porcelain Crown & Bridge

Porcelain crowns & bridges crowns are used to restore extremely worn or badly damaged teeth. They are made of porcelain, with or without a metal underlay structure, and cover the whole tooth.

The 'traditional' way of doing dental crowns

Traditionally, to make  tooth crowns, part of the tooth surface is removed allowing for a mould to be taken, from which the crown is fabricated. Provisional covers are fitted on the teeth while the fabrication is undertaken. On the second visit, these covers are removed, while the customised crowns are cemented in place.

How we do it - same day visits!

New CEREC technology has made the fabrication of  tooth crowns a much simpler process where a digital model of the teeth is taken with a special camera and the highly accurate tooth crowns are made on the spot while you wait. This new technology also makes it possible for a lot less healthy tooth structure to be cut away making the final result more durable and aesthetic.

Bridges are made when one or more teeth are lost and the remaining teeth on the sides of the gap are used to hold the bridge in place. A dental bridge is a series of crowns fused together to replace one or more missing teeth. It is very important to assess the teeth supporting the bridge very carefully as if there is a possibility of future problems the whole bridge will fail.

With the advancement in dental implant technology, there are fewer bridges being made these days as more people replace their missing teeth with dental implants. Every case needs to be carefully considered based on its own merits before decisions regarding the final treatment are made.
