We can help fix chipped, broken, damaged or missing teeth with high quality dental crowns and bridges at an affordable price.

The difference between the three

Dental crowns (also sometimes referred to as ‘dental caps’ or ‘tooth caps’) cover over and encase the tooth on which they are cemented. Dentists use crowns when rebuilding broken or decayed teeth, as a way to strengthen teeth and and as method to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth. Crowns are made in a dental laboratory by a dental technician who uses moulds of your teeth made by your dentist.

Dental veneers are generally placed for cosmetic reasons on top of the existing tooth. It is a thin coating on top of the enamel. They are often placed on many teeth and not just one tooth in order to enhance the overall appearance and appeal. However, badly damaged / broken teeth cannot be restored using this form of correction.

A bridge is an appliance permanently fixed in the mouth to replace missing teeth. It uses remaining teeth to support the new artificial tooth or teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap –these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth– and a false tooth/teeth rigidly attached in between. The false teeth are called pontics. The bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.

An enamel-bonded bridge uses a metal or porcelain framework to which the artificial teeth are attached and then resin bonded to supporting teeth.
