Crowns, bridges & tooth-coloured filings in Dursley

Treatment for restoring you mouth’s function includes crowns (or caps), which are porcelain or gold covers for damaged or unsightly teeth. Crowns are carefully crafted to look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth and can eliminate dark metallic lines around the gums. Each crown is individually handcrafted by our dental technician to create a healthy, natural look.

Crowns can be used to:

  • Strengthen teeth that have been weakened by decay or a large filling.
  • Protect fractured, cracked and worn teeth.
  • Improve the shape, alignment and shade of a tooth.
  • After root canal treatment, to help strengthen the tooth.

Bridges can be used to permanently fit a replacement tooth or teeth by being carefully attached to adjacent teeth or natural-looking dentures in metal or acrylic can be used to replace missing teeth.

The tooth-coloured composite that we use for fillings is also used for our less invasive treatments and restorations to help preserve healthy tooth tissue. Traditionally, for most cosmetic work on the front teeth, a full crown was required, involving considerable removal of healthy portions of the tooth.

However, large repairs can now be done confidently and look great with the new generation of composite bonding materials that involve a less invasive procedure. These can be completed on a single visit.
