A crown is used to cover the entire outer surface of a tooth, almost like a hat. Crowns are used when a tooth has sustained major damage, or to strengthen the tooth after root canal treatment. They also help to stabilise a tooth after a large filling. Dr Dean has a great team of technicians that will ensure the crown has a perfect fit and is a great colour match.
A veneer is a thin cover is made to cover the front surface of the teeth to improve cosmetic appearance. Veneers can be used to cover badly stained, misaligned or chipped teeth. Veneers can help in giving you that Hollywood smile.
Before and After
Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. There are several different types of bridges. A Maryland bridge is attached to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth with a thin metal “wing”. This type of bridge has minimal impact on the connecting teeth. Standard bridges are made from either ceramics, metal/ceramics, gold & can be anchored to either teeth or implants. Being fixed, they are a good alternative to removable dentures.
