Your cosmetic dentist at Gipsy Lane Dental Practice is able to fit crowns and dental bridges to replace missing teeth. It is important to replace missing teeth so that extra strain is not placed on the teeth either side of the gap (this can lead to chipping, tooth decay and gum disease if food is packed into the gap).
Crowns (also known as 'caps') can achieve artificial restoration of cracked, heavily filled or broken teeth by completely covering and protecting the tooth above the gum line. Unlike porcelain veneers, crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth making them both strong and durable. This type of treatment is often referred to as the 'Hollywood' smile makeovers. Crowns are a very effective way of restoring both your aesthetic appearance and your dental health by protecting against further damage to your tooth and against decay. They are carefully made to measure so that a natural and effective finish for each patient can be achieved.
