Porcelain crowns

A dental crown is used to completely cover or cap a blemished or damaged tooth. A dental crown can be beneficial to both the health and appearance of your smile as they can restore or enhance the appearance of your teeth, as well as help repair your dental function.

Dental crowns can be used to enhance the colour, shape, size and positioning of your teeth in order to enhance your smile. If we are simply restoring the appearance of chips and cracks we can colour match your porcelain crown to fit seamless in your smile. However if we are addressing discolouration we can help you to select anatural white crown to enhance the appearance of your teeth.

Crowns are often most suitable to:

  • Protect a tooth that is weak or vulnerable to fractures
  • Restore a tooth that is heavily filled or that has received root canal therapy
  • Repair fractures
  • Attach to a dental implant
  • Act as anchor for a dental bridge
  • Hide a poorly coloured or shaped tooth
  • Cover chips and beaks

Dental bridges

Bridges are a suitable treatment for those missing one or more teeth from their lower or upper arch. In the instance that you lose one or more teeth a dental bridge can span the space left behind by your missing tooth/ teeth. Bridges can be attached the surrounding teeth, which can be either natural teeth or porcelain crowns. In the event that there is multiple tooth loss you can receive dental implant to anchor the bridge which can be finalised with a porcelain crown.

During your consultation we can assess your dental concerns, from minor chips and discoloration, through to tooth loss, and discuss your options with you in order to find a treatment that is suitable to your smile and your lifestyle.

When should my child start seeing the dentist?

What is the difference between conventional braces and Invisalign?

There are many differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. For example, with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also removable meaning you can brush and floss as you would normally – this is something you cannot do with conventional braces. Despite this, conventional braces can be a more suitable option for those with more subnational orthodontic concerns.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are widely considered the modern solution to missing teeth and dentures. Replace missing teeth with dental implants which act and feel like normal teeth. They consist of a titanium screw-like post which is implanted into the jawbone. The implant will then bond with your jawbone to provide stimulation and support for a dental crown or bridge.

What is a root canal?

The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is recommended for patients with infected tooth pulps. The best indication of infection is severe dental pain or sensitivity.
