Crowns and Bridges at Royal Mews, Southend

A dental crown can restore chipped, fractured or damaged teeth. The tooth-shaped ‘cap’ sits over the weakened tooth to protect it, whilst matching the rest of your smile. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is fitted to the adjacent natural teeth and spans the empty space between.

Porcelain crowns are made from a hardwearing ceramic material which can be used to protect vulnerable teeth. This treatment usually requires two visits with the first appointment involving preparation to the original tooth and then an impression being made.

To create a perfect dental crown, the impression is sent away to a dental laboratory where expert technicians handcraft the new crown. They will also match it to your natural tooth shade and then during your second visit, we bond the newly prepared crown into place with a special adhesive.
