Crowns, Bridges

& Veneers

Fix your smile with a solution that suits you best

What are Crowns?

A single tooth can be damaged due to tooth disease or injury. The tooth in question is cleaned, reshaped and fitted with a Dental Crown that fits snuggly over the tooth restoring its appearance and function back to its former glory.

With proper care and maintenance, Dental crowns can last for many years to come. Regular Dental check ups are essential as well as proper diet and care in order to maintain the health of the crown and surrounding teeth.

What are Dental Bridges?

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, it is possible to close or bridge the gaps in your smile with Dental bridges. A Dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) on either side of the gap which are reshaped in order to fit the Dental bridge comfortably.

The bridge is cemented in place and if looked after can last up to 15 years and longer. Although Dental bridges can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth. A bridge can be used to replace one to four incisors, a canine, one or more molars, two premolars and the first molar.

What are Dental Veneers?

When a small blemish or chip on the tooth compromises its appearance or if you are unhappy with the current shape of your teeth then Dental Veneers are considered to improve your smile and give you back the confidence you’ve always wanted. The tooth or teeth are minimally shaped on the facial aspect on which the Dental Veneer is cemented on.

Veneers are considered when teeth are discoloured due to stains or age, chipped or broken teeth, slight misalignments of the teeth, slight gaps between the teeth  and when teeth have been worn down due to tooth grinding. Veneers are a more natural and longer lasting solution to Dental fillings when mild reshaping of the tooth is needed.
