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 technicians are highly skilled and use the latest high-quality materials for stronger and more natural looking crowns. The video to the right illustrates the process of how we make crowns.
What is a bridge?
A dental bridge is constructed from hand crafted crowns that are held together by a sub-structure to replace multiple missing 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?
You will require 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.
