Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges are integral to many of the cosmetic transformations that we have achieved at Briarmeads Dental Practice.

Dental Crowns

A crown is an artificial cover or 'cap' used to replace missing portions of teeth.The crown covers a tooth completely in order to restore or improve the shape, size and appearance of the tooth.

While initially used to repair a tooth that was too damaged to take another filling, crowns are increasingly used by Briarmeads Dental Practice in cosmetic smile design where they cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth in order to improve their appearance.


When you are missing one or more teeth, your remaining teeth can be used to carry or support artificial porcelain teeth which are stuck in place across the gap. This is called a bridge.

While we use many types of bridge depending on each patients individual circumstances, we only use the best all ceramic or noble metal materials for our bridges.

We match the colour and bite of the bridge to your own teeth so that the bridge looks and feels as if it's part of you. The process only takes around two weeks to complete.
