At Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre, we can bring your natural smile back to life with a custom-made restoration. If you have very decayed or damaged teeth, a bespoke crown will, as its name suggests, cleverly cap your existing tooth. A bridge is used to replace missing teeth, comprising a prosthetic tooth or teeth, secured at each end by a crown.
Made to your exact specifications of shape and shade, crowns and bridges are fabricated in a dental lab, usually from porcelain or a tooth-coloured composite. Today’s crowns and bridges look and feel very realistic – they no longer have a grey metal edge near the gum line and feel less bulky than the kind of restorations that were being made only a few years ago.
