Crown Bridges Veneers

A crown is an artificial covering or ‘cap’ placed over the top of your own tooth. They can be made of a combination of metal and ceramic or entirely of ceramic. Crowns are used for a number of reasons – when teeth are broken, badly stained or have large fillings. They can also be used to fill in gaps where teeth are missing by making a bridge.

A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth in certain situations. The tooth (or teeth) beside the gap is used to hold in the replacement tooth. This is done by placing a crown or a small metal support on the back of the neighbouring tooth.

A veneer is a thin ceramic facing that can be placed over the front of a tooth (similar to a false finger nail!). Veneers are used to mask stained teeth, correct misshaped teeth to improve aesthetics and can even close small gaps in-between teeth.
