Crowns & Bridges in Edinburgh

If you have a weak tooth or missing a tooth or teeth, you may wish to consider a dental crown or a bridge.

A dental crown sits over a tooth that may have been broken or weakened and helps return the tooth to its former strength and shape.

If you are missing one or more teeth a dental bridge can be fitted. A bridge is similar to a crown but is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Conventional bridges are made by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a false tooth in the middle to restore function and look natural. The bridge also stops the surrounding teeth from moving out of place over time and maintains the shape of the face.

What are dental crowns and bridges?

Dental crowns are an ideal way of repairing teeth that have been broken, weakened or showing signs of decay. They can also be used to protect a tooth after root canal treatment.

A dental bridge is used to replace missing teeth and helps to ‘bridge the gap’ between teeth. This not only improves the appearance of your teeth but also improves the functionality as the teeth on either side of the gap feel less strain.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Generally, it will take at least two visits. We will need to prepare your tooth during the first visit, as well as taking impressions and making a note of the shade your crown should be. We will then fit a temporary crown. Your permanent dental crown will be fitted during your second visit. There is usually a 1-2 week wait between appointments.

How long can I expect my dental crown or bridge last?

The answer depends on how well you look after your teeth once the procedure is complete. You may have a gap in your teeth for a number of reasons, but if it were due to poor oral hygiene, we would recommend regular visits to the hygienist. Well look after crowns and bridges can last for a number of years.
