Crowns and Veneers

We can produce the most natural dental restorations using the newest technologies and materials. We work closely with our laboratories to provide beautiful replacements for flawed, damaged, broken or missing teeth.

Porcelain Veneers
 

A Porcelain Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain which is made to fit the surface of a front tooth. They can be used to correct colour imperfections, broken or crooked teeth. You can have just one veneer or a complete makeover of your front teeth.

The continual advance of porcelain veneers and veneering technology make them the preferred treatment method. But an examination and discussion with your dentist will allow you to decide on the best choice for you.

A cheaper option is to use standard filling materials and bond them directly to your teeth if there is enough structure remaining. However, they do tend to break and discolour more quickly, making veneers a better alternative. We can advise on the best option for you during your consultation.

High Quality Crowns


When a tooth is badly damaged or has been root treated a crown can be the only option to restore it. Crowns are often a better solution for more severe dental problems. Very often a combination of Crowns, Porcelain Veneers and Bridgework can be the best approach to a more attractive smile

Crowns are available in a few different materials:


New Porcelain Crowns
Tooth coloured material of superb quality. They are becoming the material of choice for crowns and bridgework due to their strength and remarkable aesthetic qualities. They are now virtually indistinguishable from “real” teeth. We can control the shape, colour and size of crowns and bridges to provide a perfect, yet natural looking smile. We use materials of the highest quality.

Porcelain Bonded to Precious Metal
The metal core provides great strength. The porcelain gives the outward appearance of a natural tooth. Because of the metal core light can not pass through and therefore we tend to use this alternative to replace back teeth. They are not quite as aesthetically beautiful as all Porcelain crowns, but are used where strength is the priority.

High Quality Gold Crowns
They provide a very strong option for back teeth especially where the bite (occlusion) is heavy. They are still the strongest remedy of all crowns but may not be the cosmetic finish that some people would prefer.

Bridgework

They are an ideal alternative to partial dentures and offer a permanent solution.

Bridges can be made of porcelain bonded to precious metal however the newer materials are now much more popular. There is also an alternative ‘adhesive’ bridge that is less intrusive but can only be used in certain situations.

We will be happy to advise you further during your examination.

Cerec 3D Crowns

This is a machine that can take an optical image of a tooth requiring treatment and can make that restoration immediately  within the practice. This means that a temporary crown and an impression are not needed and a perfectly fitting, all ceramic crown is available and can be fitted straight away. You can watch your crown being made as it happens! The other major advantage is that it allows us to restore teeth that previously were not saveable.

A five year guarantee is provided with any Cerec crown. They are colour matched to your own teeth and it is one of the strongest ways of restoring your own teeth.

Laboratory Made Crowns

We have expert and reliable laboratories that make our crowns specifically to our instructions. Whether we are replacing a simple bonded crown or making cosmetic all ceramic crowns, the highest standard of materials and techniques are employed. They are the most natural dental restorations that eliminate the dark lines sometimes associated with crowns.
