Crown and Bridge
- Restore severely broken down or worn teeth
- Restore heavily filled teeth
- Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
- Help protect a tooth that is vulnerable to fracture
- Restore a back tooth that has had root canal treatment
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials
Gold : Usually only placed on the very back teeth, gold has been used in dentistry for centuries and produces very reliable restorations. Its use is declining simply because people now prefer tooth coloured materials.
Metal-Ceramic : A metal-ceramic crown has a metal inner structure to which a ceramic outer layer is fused. This combination can produce strong, natural looking restorations. When metal-ceramic crowns are indicated, we prefer to use gold as the metal rather than semi-precious or non-precious metals, due to the superior fit and biocompatibility of gold.
Bridges can be an option to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. In a conventional bridge design, the teeth adjacent to the gap are prepared as they would be for crowns. The bridge consists of a false tooth (called a pontic) which is permanently joined to the crowns on either side.
More than one tooth can be replaced by a bridge, and various bridge designs are possible.
Bridges can be made from the same materials as crowns.

A tooth jewel is bonded on a real tooth. It will stay on until you decide to have it removed.
2. How do I remove or replace a tooth jewel?
It is easily removed. There will be no visible sign left.
3. Will the jewel harm a tooth?
No. The jewel is bonded to the enamel. The procedure and removal has been compared to the placement and removal of orthodontic brackets (braces).
4. Will a tooth jewel impede brushing?
No, the presence of the twinkle will make you want to brush more frequently, since it brings more attention to your smile.
5. Can I still have my teeth cleaned?
6. Can I feel the jewel on my tooth?
The jewels are only 0.6 mm thick. You may be aware of something on your tooth the first couple of days after the application, but you will soon get used to the feeling.
7. What if I swallow it?
Normally this will not happen. In the event of the tooth jewel coming off it would be thrown out by the tongue. The jewel has no sharp edges.
