At JAF Dental we offer a full range of conventional crown, bridge and veneer treatment options. We work together with the best dental ceramists and technicians to ensure your crowns, bridges and veneers are of the highest quality, craftsmanship and provide the best aesthetics.
The longevity of heavily restored teeth can be improved by the placement of well-fitting crowns especially after endodontic treatment (root canal treatment). A crown is sometimes referred to as a “cap”. It fits over a tooth and is cemented therefore restoring the shape, contour and colour of the tooth. At JAF Dental we provide a variety of crown materials from the conventional tried and tested gold and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns to the latest all-ceramic, highly aesthetic ceramic materials.
A missing tooth may be replaced by a fixed bridge which is fixed to the teeth adjacent to the gap. This usually requires preparation of the adjacent teeth to allow the bridge to fit over them. Bridges are becoming less common with the introduction of dental implants as dental implants do not require preparation of adjacent teeth especially if they are healthy teeth.
Veneers may be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth and the overall smile. They are made of a thin shell of porcelain that is permanently bonded to the teeth. Veneers are generally require less preparation of the teeth than crowns and can improve the aesthetic appearance of the teeth by altering the position, shape and shade of the teeth. They can be used to improve:
– Stained, discoloured teeth
– Spaces between teeth
– Broken down and chipped teeth
– Crooked teeth
