Before & After Pictures



When the outside surface (or dental crown) of one of your teeth becomes damaged due to tooth decay or injury, we will recommend repairing it. If tooth decay has made the tooth irreparable, it may have to be replaced. Left untreated, a damaged tooth might not only affect your smile, it could also lead to further tooth decay in the underlying tooth and root, resulting in the need for a root canal or other major dental procedure.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

• Dental crowns protect severely damaged tooth or tooth weakened by decay, fracture, large fillings or root canal therapy from fracturing. Teeth with large fillings tend to "flex more" forcing the tooth apart possibly causing stress fractures
• Dental crowns hold together cracked or weaken teeth and seal the tooth from decay
• Dental crowns cover discoloured teeth and irregularities in teeth in improving cosmetic appearance
• Dental crowns help preserve the natural function and position of the teeth
• Dental crowns restore tooth with large decay, cavities or filings
• Dental crowns support the replacement teeth in a bridge
• Dental crowns restore and maintains natural bite
• Dental crowns acts as a false teeth over dental implants
• Dental crowns can restore your smile

A dental crown is one of the most effective dental solutions for covering a tooth to restore its shape, size and strength, or to improve its appearance. We might recommend a dental crown to:

- Cover discoloured teeth or dental implants
- Protect a tooth from tooth decay
- Restore a broken tooth
- Hold a dental bridge in place

The procedure for placing the dental crown involves:

Grinding the chewing surface and sides of the tooth.
Taking an impression of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth.
Placement of a temporary crown to cover the prepared tooth while the permanent crown is being made.

At your second visit, we will remove the temporary crown, check the fit and colour of the permanent crown, then cement it in place. Dental crowns are made from a variety of dental materials, including:

Metal (gold, nickel or chromium)
- Porcelain fused to metal
- All porcelain or all ceramic
- Resin (durable plastic)

The kind of dental crown suitable for you depends on what which teeth need crowns.

Caring for Your Crown :

Dental crowns don't keep tooth decay at bay. You still need to brush regularly, eat a well-balanced diet and visit the dentist every six months. Avoiding certain habits such as opening packages with your mouth, bruxism and chewing ice can also help prevent dental crowns from wearing out prematurely. If you follow these recommendations, your shiny new dental crowns can last 5 to 15 years.


One or more missing teeth can adversely affect the appearance and functionality of your smile. Missing teeth can cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder, speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.

Dental bridges, like implants and partial dentures, are used to replace missing teeth.
Dental bridges serve an aesthetic purpose, allowing you to show off your beautiful smile without shame or fear that your missing tooth is what people will remember. They help your wallet, too, because dental bridges cost less than other methods of tooth replacement.

Unlike removable devices such as dentures, dental bridge work is cemented onto natural teeth or dental implants on either side of a missing tooth. These anchor teeth are called abutments. The replacement tooth -- called a pontic -- is attached to a dental crown on each abutment.

The Dental Bridge Procedure

During the first visit, we examine the health of your gums and other teeth to evaluate if you are a candidate for a dental bridge. If you are a candidate for a dental bridge, you are given a local anaesthetic so we can prepare the teeth required to support the bridge. If the support teeth are decayed or badly broken down, they may have to be build up before they can be used as support teeth for a bridge.

Next, an impression of the prepared teeth with a putty-like material is used to create a model of your teeth. Your bridge is fabricated based on this model by a skilled lab technician so that it precisely fits the prepared teeth. It is important that your restoration fit perfectly to avoid additional oral health problems such as tooth decay.

While your bridge is being fabricated, we provide you with a temporary bridge so the teeth and gums can be protected from damage until your permanent bridge is ready.

To complete the dental bridge procedure, you must return to the dental office for a second visit to have the bridge fitted and cemented.

A bridge can last more than 10 years, especially if you practice good oral hygiene. Remember: Dental bridge work requires healthy surrounding teeth and gums to stay in place. To keep your teeth healthy, brush twice a day and floss daily. Regular dental visits and dental cleanings are recommended twice a year.

If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge procedure might be the right dental treatment for you.

Advantages of dental bridges:

Bridges are natural in appearance, and usually require only two visits to your dentist. If you maintain good oral hygiene, your fixed bridge should last as many as ten years or more.

Disadvantages of having a dental bridge:

It is common for your teeth to be mildly sensitive to extreme temperatures for a few weeks after the treatment. The build up of bacteria formed from food acids on your teeth and gums can become infected if proper oral hygiene is not followed.

All-ceramic dental crowns & Bridges

Whether your tooth has decayed, or become injured, an all-ceramic dental crown) is the most beautiful, precision-made and safe solution for replacing your damaged crown. Best of all, it looks just like your natural tooth – and is completely metal-free.

Unlike dental crowns with a metal core, all-ceramic dental crowns don’t show a grey line at their base near y our gums.




Precious metal crowns & Bridges

These are made of precious metal gold alloys and show excellent biocompatibility and margin adaptation.


Porcelain fused to metal Crowns & Bridges

Have underlying base metal alloys veneered with aesthetic ceramic material to suit desired shades, and provide excellent strength. These are economical and do not chip easily. However, the metal may show at the margin and the underlying metal may also affect the colour of the ceramic.

Porcelain fused to metal restorations are still the most prescribed restoratives to date. Offering several different types of metals with which to fabricate the substructure, a wide variety of PFM crowns and bridge solutions are available.


Proven effectiveness, long term durability, metal occlusion protection, indicated for most dental restorative procedures, wide variety of porcelains and metals available, porcelain margins for aesthetic quality.


A porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crown has a core of cast metal alloy covered with porcelain. If your gum receded, a gray line may become visible.

Captek Crowns & Bridges

Another new and popular esthetic crown is the captek crown, which is a combination of precious metal (gold) veneered with ceramic, making it highly aesthetic,strong,beautiful and natural looking.

A revitalized smile can increase your self-confidence and enhance feelings of well-being. Captek Crowns and Bridges are cosmetic, healthy and durable; an advanced material designed for the patient who demands the best.

They are proven to be perfect for Achieving Vital, Attractive Tooth Color

The unique structure of the “composite metal” is the core reason Captek’s esthetic qualities are matched with strength, versatility and plaque resistance. Internally, a uniquely designed skeleton of strong, stable platinum/ palladium particles support the gold.

No dark margins with Captek. The oxide free, warm gold color, together with the unique light dispersion qualities of the surface create a perfect background for porcelain that looks vital and naturally blends in.
