Crowns & Bridges

"Barry has been my dentist for nearly 15 years and it always feels like a pleasure to visit him. I know I am in safe hands and I completely trust him to be honest with me and give the best advice and care. Thank you Barry."
A crown is used to protect and restore a broken or heavily filled tooth. They can also be used to improve the appearance of discoloured or crooked teeth. Crowns are made from a variety of materials including gold and ceramic.
A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth with a fixed solution. There are several types of bridges but the most common is by crowning the teeth either side of the gap and joining them together with a solid crown in the space. Fewer bridges are made these days because of the advantages of implants but in some instances they may be the preferred option.
