A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling. The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It will also be tooth coloured, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in with the rest of your teeth.

A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more aesthetic smile. Also, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth. At Dentiq our team is highly skilled in restoring teeth both from an aesthetic and functional perspective using crowns, giving our patients an attractive and healthy smile.

Here at Dentiq our team has extensive training and experience in fitting bridges to restore the function and appearance of teeth. If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, a good solution is a dental bridge. Bridges can be made of a precious metal base which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. If you need a bridge in your smile line, porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth. This will give your smile a more natural appearance. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can’t come out.

Some bridges can also be fixed to dental implants which are placed in the jaw, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing. As a practice, Dentiq has particular expertise in implant treatment and placing implant retained bridges, having successfully treated many patients.

Once you have a bridge fitted, we will advise you on how to best take care of your oral hygiene to ensure your bridge lasts and you avoid plaque build-up. Contact us today if you have any questions about your teeth.


As a result of advanced tooth decay or certain genetic conditions, some people lose all their teeth in either or both jaws. This can have a devastating effect on people’s confidence and their ability to chew food properly. One solution for this is having dentures fitted. A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give you mouth a natural appearance. Your denture will be made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove it for cleaning.

When you wear a denture for the first time it may get some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care in your hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. The hygienist will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this. At Dentiq our team has training and experience in delivering denture treatment to patients who are missing some or all of their teeth.
