A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth -- to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
When a large filling needs replacing or half a tooth is missing we usually recommend a crown. Crowns are caps made to fit over an existing tooth. Crowns are often recommended following a root canal filling to protect the remaining tooth where strength is often compromised by the extensive decay and infection. Alternatively they can be used to cosmetically treat a smile where teeth are heavily filled and the provision of a crown increases tooth strength, and improves appearance. At DENTAL ART we provide different types of crowns that can suit all budgets. Costs often reflect the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship involved in designing your bespoke crown. At DENTALART we offer the latest ceramic metal free restorations(Zirconia crowns). These offer long term superior aesthetics, strength and fit. We can also use the same technology to replace missing teeth with bridgework, giving you fantastic aesthetics together with a functioning, comfortable bite. Our dentists are happy to discuss what may be suitable for you.
Bridges are units of false teeth that are fixed to remaining natural teeth to fill a gap. A bridge may take the place of one or more missing teeth and the results can be excellent with good function and aesthetic results. With careful maintenance a well-made bridge can last many years.
