Crowns, bridges and veneers
These all play an important part in restoring missing or broken teeth. The long term success of crowns and veneers depends on the skill of the technician as well as very careful planning and placement by the dentist. At Crosby Dental, we work closely with a local laboratory so that we can be sure of an excellent finished product for our patients.
- Crown - a crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that fits over your tooth to protect and strengthen it.
- Bridge - when you have a missing tooth, a bridge is recommended to fill the space. A crown is placed on a neighbouring tooth and used to hold the bridge in place.
- Veneers are thin facings that protect or improve the appearance of teeth.
