Crowns: A cover/cap over the tooth to restore strength and appearance, preventing fractures. All our crowns are fabricated out of Zirconia or Porcelain. These have been shown to be very safe and strong materials while also providing a life-like appearance to match with the colour of the rest of your teeth. The crowning of a tooth/teeth are the strongest restorations we have in dentistry.
A dental crown may be recommended for a tooth for various purposes; these include:
- Teeth with very large fillings
- Root Canal Treated Teeth
- Extensive Rehabilitation/Re-build of the mouth
- Severe wear or erosion of teeth.
- Weak teeth
Bridges: are similar to crowns and can be used to close the gap between two teeth. They stay permanently in the mouth and can give you the confidence to eat and speak comfortably.
Veneers: are a thin layer of porcelain or resin material which can be placed over tooth surfaces to help improve the aesthetic appearance. Within 1-2 appointments your smile can be transformed with truly stunning outcomes.
Both options offer dramatic improvements to your smile and our dentists can help you decide which is most appropriate for you.
