Dental Crowns / Bridges
Dental crowns are a covering or ‘cap’, that can be used to cover and strengthen a compromised tooth. Crowns may be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore functionality of a tooth with excessive decay, or replace a pre-existing crown.
The different types of crowns would be discussed at your consultation appointment. Following this, the patient will be brought in for two more visits. First visit would entail the preparation of the tooth and the second visit would be the fitting of the crown.
Dental bridges are when one or more teeth are missing. A bridge is simply made up of two crowns one on each side of the tooth, these two supporting teeth are called abutments and the false tooth/teeth in between is known as a pontic tooth.
Tax relief of 20% can also be claimed on this procedure.
