Crowns etc.

Crowns, inlays and bridges are a big part of our practice. Tooth preparation is usually needed before impressions are taken. These can be conventional or digital. They are assessed by us and sent to our laboratories for manufacture. On your return, we confirm excellent fit and make any adjustments necessary. When you and us are satisfied, the restoration is delivered.


We have a minimum intervention philosophy. Tooth veneers and onlays are often preferred. We aim to preserve as much tooth structure as possible. The appearance of the final result is, of course, one of your most important criteria. To achieve this, we will usually make a smile design and diagnostic evaluation before proceeding with treatment. This can often be done digitally, at your first visit, or you may have to return to try in the evaluation.


We are lucky to have a fully functional laboratory on site for our use. This allows us to plan and control much of the laboratory work, before it is sent away and returned to us.

A significant proportion of the 'back room' organisation and hands on technical work remains our responsibility. This can result in a better outcome and reduce the number of visits to us.


Don't forget dentures. There is still a place for the 'All on None' in an 'All on Four' world. Millions of people are happy with complete dentures. These can be made to replace all missing teeth, using techniques established for decades. A natural smile, indistinguishable from the real thing, can be engineered to assure your prosthodontic privacy.
