A crown is a covering that is placed over a tooth and held in place by dental adhesive or cement.
Crowns are used for several reasons such as:
- A protective cover for badly decayed teeth or fractured teeth
- A permanent restoration for teeth with large fillings
- To correct crowding or spacing and irregularly shaped teeth
- To cover severe tooth discolouration

Common dental crown materials include:
- Metal / Cobalt-Cromium (silver colour)
- Ceramic with a metal substructure
- All Ceramic crowns - Pressed ceramic - eMAX with feldspathic porcelain.
- All Ceramic crowns - full zirconia or zirconia reinforced crowns
- Full Gold Crown - minimum 60% gold alloy
All ceramic crowns will produce the most natural finish and so the aesthetic crown of choice.

Dental Bridges in Chessington, Surrey
Bridges are designed to fill gaps of missing teeth.
They are a fixed appliance, meaning only your dentist can remove them. Bridges can help restore your appearance and improve chewing function. They can also improve your speech and prevent your other teeth to drift out of their position.
Bridges attach on to your existing teeth adjacent to the space as support. They are usually made from a precious metal base which porcelain can be bonded to for aesthetics.
