Crown & Bridgework

A Crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and colour of your own natural tooth.

A Crown is sometimes known as a 'cap'. Latest Cosmetic Crowns can be made from either, Porcelain, Ceramic, Glass or Composite Metal and can last for many years.

Crowns are an ideal restoration for discoloured or broken teeth, or teeth that have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. It may also be used to hold a bridge or a denture firmly in place.
