Crowns and Bridges Treatment Leicester & Loughborough
Crowns are placed on teeth that are weaker. Unlike veneers, dental crowns are bonded all the way around a tooth to add durability and strength. Crowns are precision made and totally personalised to each individual. Our technician is highly skilled and uses the latest high quality material on the market for stronger and more natural looking crowns.
What is a bridge?
A bridge is a combination of crowns and artificial teeth.
Bridges can close the gap left by one or more missing teeth, restoring the look of your smile and redistributing the workload more evenly. In some cases we might suggest an artificial tooth implanted right into your jawbone
How many appointments do I need?
Two visits two weeks apart.
At the first visit, the tooth is prepared by removing the old filling and the decay to allow space for the crown to fit onto. Photos of the teeth are taken and sent to our master cosmetic technician which allows him to construct the highest quality crown to match your teeth for a more natural look. A high quality temporary crown is then constructed.
At the second visit, the temporary crown is removed and the high quality permanent crown is cemented in place.
What types of crown are there?
We often provide metal free crowns for a superior aesthetics result. Some of the materials we use are Empress, Procera and LAVA. Each type of material is used depending on the patient’s bite and aesthetics
How long does a crown last?
If looked after properly, they can last many years.
