Crowns & Bridges at Holly Dental Practice

Strong. Durable. Natural-Looking.

Crowns and bridges offer a way to hide imperfections in your teeth with a natural-looking restoration.

If your tooth has become broken, badly decayed or damaged in such a way that a filling is not strong enough to support the tooth, then a Crown may be recommended as the most suitable treatment option for you. If you need to have your damaged tooth removed, then a Bridge may be recommended as a way to replace this tooth and fill the gap in your smile.

What is a Crown?

A Crown (also known as a ‘cap’) is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore function and appearance.

At Holly Dental Practice we provide a range of Crowns using only technically advanced materials of the highest quality, that are produced by our trusted chosen dental laboratories, so that our patients can choose the right treatment option for them according to their requirements and budget.

What are the Benefits of an All-Ceramic Crown?

Since they do not contain any metal, All-Ceramic Crowns are bio-compatible. This also means there will be no black line at gum level with your new tooth.

With advances in modern dental technology, All-Ceramic Crowns are proven to be as strong and durable as metal porcelain crowns and so they are able to offer patients the best of both worlds – a long lasting and natural looking solution.

What is a Bridge?

Used to replace missing teeth, a Dental Bridge is made up of Crowns fitted to the teeth either side of a gap in the mouth. To prevent the need for a denture or dental implants, a Dental Bridge is used to restore the look and feel of a complete smile.

Generally, you only require two appointments to fit a bridge, and if you make sure to keep good dental hygiene then they can last for 10-15 years. Through having missing teeth, your speech, bite, appearance and overall confidence can be affected. A Dental Bridge is a solution to these and other concerns with your smile.

Frequently asked questions:

What is the difference between a crown and a bridge?

Crowns are a single-tooth restoration that caps your existing tooth. Bridges replace one or more adjacent missing teeth with a prosthetic that bridges the gap, held in place at each end by a crown.

How is my crown, bridge or partial denture made?

Traditional crowns, bridges and partial dentures have to be made in a dental lab. This will require you to sit for dental impressions, so an accurate restoration can be tailor-made to create the perfect combination of function and aesthetics. You will be involved in the process from start to finish and the lab will create a restoration that meets you and your dentist’s requirements in terms of shape and shade.

How is a crown or bridge fitted?

Before your custom restoration is made at the lab, your dentist will prepare your tooth by filing it down into a smooth shape that correctly accommodates the restoration. Dental impressions will be taken and sent to the lab where your restoration will be made. When it is ready, you’ll return to the dentist to have your crown or bridge cemented in place and cured under a special light.

How long will my crown or bridge last?

With good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, your restoration could last as long as 20 years.
