  • Front Tooth Crown Fitting

    A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a 'cap'.

  • Gold Crown Fitting

    A gold crown is made entirely of gold which is very hard wearing and is most suitable for back teeth. Many patients find the appearance to be less acceptable. MORE INFO
  • Post Crown Fitting

    A post crown is made for teeth which have been root filled and do not have sufficient tooth left to support a crown. The post fits inside the tooth root and the crown fits over the top of this. MORE INFO

  • Missing Front Teeth

    There are a number of different ways to replace missing front teeth, often with both fixed and removable possibilities. The final choice often depends on the number and condition of the teeth that are still left. MORE INFO

    These bridges are stuck onto the back surface of the adjacent teeth and are often used to replace missing teeth in the front of the mouth. They rely on adhesive to bond the supporting 'wings' onto the teeth. Occasionally they de-bond which means a return trip to the dentist to have it re-bonded back into place.

  • Multi-Unit Bridge

    This option can replace more than one tooth and usually requires the teeth on either side of the space to be prepared (reduced in size) for the crowns which support the bridge over the space. The 'false teeth' are joined to the teeth on either side, which therefore have to carry the extra load. MORE INFO
