Crown and Bridge Work

Restoring extensively restored teeth.

When teeth become extensivly restored they become weaker and prone to splitting and fracture. This is particularly true for root treated teeth. A crown sits on top of a tooth to provide structural rigidity against the flexure and fatigue of such weakend teeth.

There are a wide range of material choices depending on the clinical and aesthetic requirements.

Restoring gaps and spaces.

When teeth unfortunately fail and are lost, bridges can be an option to replace teeth where implants or dentures may not be suitable. The picutre shown is a 'conventional' bridge where a tooth has a crown with another tooth attached to replace a gap. Alternatively we provide resin-retained bridges that are far more minimal in terms of tooth preparation and removal in cases where teeth are minimally restored.
