Made in a local laboratory, our crowns and bridges are of the highest quality so that they will last for years to come. Crowns and bridges serve as replacement parts for your teeth. Missing or damaged teeth can cause inconvenience and at our clinic, we have a multitude of treatment options for our clients. If you would like to find out more about the dental crown procedure, book an appointment with us. We will explain the treatment in detail so that you have an idea about what to expect. 

Dental Crowns

Also known as a cap, a crown resembles a tooth but is created to fit over the structure of an existing tooth that has been damaged. This damage can occur from trauma, wear and tear or decay. It’s also suitable to stabilise a tooth that has received a root canal. It will be colour-matched to the rest of your teeth for a seamless look.

The procedure for getting a crown takes place over two appointments. At the first, we’ll prepare your tooth and take impressions, which are sent to our laboratory. When the crown is sent back to our practice, you’ll return for a follow-up visit to fit the crown. You’ll receive a temporary crown to wear until yours is fabricated.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is an option for anyone who wishes to replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth. When you have gaps in your smile, it affects the way you feel.

Our team will help you achieve a smile you’re proud to show off. This restorative appliance involves a row of false teeth that are secured by crowns attached to the teeth that neighbour the gap.

Two appointments are involved. At the first, we’ll prepare your mouth to receive the bridge and take the necessary impressions, which are sent to our laboratory. Your bridge is custom-made there, then returned back to us. You’ll come back for a follow-up and have your bridge fitted with full instructions on proper hygiene.
