Dental crowns and ‘bridge’ are fast becoming a mainstay treatment option, and the rapid development in dental materials and technology have made this a successful long term option.

Dental porcelain is hand-crafted and comes in many forms, and it is far stronger, durable, and more natural looking than traditional filling materials.

Porcelain crown

Dental crowns, also known as ‘caps’, act as a helmet for the tooth and are ideal for individual teeth. These may be needed if the tooth:

  • is severely weakened from cracks and large fillings
  • long standing chipped or damaged areas, either from grinding or dietary acid erosion
  • has had trauma and discolouration
  • has had root canal treatment, is considered too weak and prone to splitting if left unprotected

Porcelain bridge

A dental bridge is considered if there is a missing tooth or teeth, and this porcelain bridge acts to ‘bridge’ the space between the remaining adjacent teeth. This is a fixed in option, meaning it can be used as if a normal fixed tooth was in place. Speaking, chewing and tasting food is unimpeded.

Porcelain crowns and bridges are hand-crafted by ceramacists to look and feel like one’s own tooth, and optical properties are preserved so that it is entirely life-like to even the most discerning eye.
