A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or broken tooth to restore or improve its appearance, and can also be a solution to provide protection for a weak tooth. Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth.

The costs of crowns and bridges vary but generally our prices start at £512, while bridges to replace one tooth start at £895.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Dentistry is no longer confined purely to function. The appearance of our teeth has become increasingly important and that’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in. Cosmetic dentistry refers to treatments designed to improve the appearance of our teeth and our smile. Treatments can straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth and such treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, teeth whitening and teeth straightening. With the help of cosmetic dentistry your teeth can not only stay healthy, they can look great too.
What is a veneer?
Veneers are the quick way to get a beautiful smile and are perfect for people with chipped or heavily stained teeth, and can also help to close gaps between front teeth. Veneers are essentially thin slices of porcelain that are made to fit perfectly over the surface of your front teeth.
What is a crown?
A crown is an artificial cap that fits over a broken tooth. It makes the tooth stronger and gives it the appearance of a natural tooth. Crowns are also used to repair teeth weakened by decay or a large filling.
What are crowns made from?
Crowns can be made from a range of materials. There are ceramic or porcelain based crowns, as well as porcelain fused to metal, gold alloys and base metal alloys. The type of crown you choose will depend largely on the position of the tooth being crowned. Durability is best in gold and metal alloys.
What is a bridge?
Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth, and are ideal for those with a few missing teeth who don’t like the idea of wearing dentures. Bridges are adjoined to crowns, which are made to go on the teeth either side of the gap.
What are bridges made from?
Bridges are usually made from precious metal bonded to porcelain.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, which is usually made from Titanium. A dental implant is fitted directly into the jaw bone and once settled a replacement tooth is screwed into the replacement root. They are the closest thing to real teeth. Dental implants are generally made from Titanium because it is so inert the bone doesn’t recognise it as a foreign material.
Can anyone have dental implants?
No. Dental implants aren’t suitable for younger patients as they can only be fitted once the jaw has stopped growing. Some people with poor dental health or some medical conditions may also not be suitable candidates for dental implants. Every case is different, so it is best to discuss your case with a dental implant expert, such as Dr Fadi Barek recommended at Dental Healthcare Practice.
Can I get stains removed from my teeth?
Yes. Tooth whitening is a highly effective way of removing stains and lightening the existing shade of your teeth.
What does tooth whitening involve?
Professional bleaching is the most common way to whiten teeth. Your dentist applies whitening product to your teeth using a specially made tray which fits over your teeth. The active ingredient in the bleaching product is hydrogen peroxide, and it works by releasing oxygen which gets into the enamel on your teeth and makes the colour lighter and brighter. Usually treatments are continued at home over 3 or 4 weeks for best results.
Can my crooked teeth be straightened?
Misaligned teeth are one of the most common complaints dental patients have. While it is best to straighten teeth when you are younger, it’s still possible to straighten them when you are an adult. Braces or orthodontics are often used to straighten teeth, but there are now less lengthy and invasive alternatives, such as invisible braces and clear positioners.
Can the size and shape of my teeth be changed?
The shape and size of teeth can be corrected using porcelain veneers.
