Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are relatively permanent solutions to damaged or missing teeth. The restorative treatment uses prosthetic devices to bring your smile back.

Unlike dentures for tooth replacement, crowns and bridges feel and function closest to your original teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

It can sometimes be possible for your dentist to do a combination of things when possible. We can either offer multiple appointments so you don’t need to spend so long in the dental chair but if you are keen to reduce the number of visits, it may be possible to offer a combination of treatments on the same day.

One example would be, if you were having a root canal treatment done the then first stage of the dental crown could also be done on the same day. Similarly, if you have two damaged teeth either side of a missing tooth, then your dentist can easily address all 3 issues at the same time but preparing the damaged teeth and replacing the gap with a 3 unit bridge. This would be a simple bridge procedure.

If you have a damaged tooth which has been diagnosed as needing to be extracted then it may be possible, depending on the level of bone, to surgically extract the tooth and replace it with an immediate implant. This not only saves you coming in for another visit but also cuts down the usual waiting time for the bone to heal post extraction and then have the implant placement 3 months later.

You would still need to wait 3 months after the immediate implant to be able to place the permanent crown or bridge as the bone will need to heal and fully fuse with the dental implant.

The cost of crowns and bridges widely vary depending on the material and the quantity.

There are many alternatives to crowns and bridges but when you compromise on quality then the crowns and bridges will not last as long. As a result you will end up spending more in long term for replacements which could have been avoidable if you had chosen the slightly more expensive treatment. It all comes down to quality of life and you don’t want to have unnecessary replacements sooner than you should. You also want a crown or bridge that will look natural and blend in with your other teeth. Cheaper alternatives can often be obvious and look foreign in your mouth which can knock your confidence when you smile.

The best thing you can do to avoid additional costs for dental replacements is preventive care. Regular checkups, professional hygiene cleans, excellent oral care habits, proper diet and nutrition will get you a long way.

If you are wondering if we are too expensive for you, do not worry. You don’t have to be a celebrity or remortgage your house to avail of our services.

Once we have fully assessed your mouth, gums and soft tissues then we will give you all the options available, ranging from the cheapest to the most expensive. Our friendly reception team will be advised what will need to be arranged and schedule the treatments that are within your budget.

We treat all patients equally – with warmth and hospitality. We want you to feel welcome at Holford Partners Curaden and our goal is oral health care – keyword care.

We guarantee that whatever procedure you get from us, you will receive the best quality results that will indeed allow you to avoid unnecessary  replacements. Our high quality dental treatments will in the long run save you money.

We will advise and recommend what the best options are for you and your oral health and allow you to take your time to decide. Too often do some dentists advise unnecessary treatments that are not in the best interests of the patient. Our patient’s quality of life is out number one priority.

Our treatments’ results are effective and long-lasting, which means that you won’t have to worry about problems, pain, and discomfort for a significant amount of time.

We do not offer online consultations because dental check-ups require a dentist to take a close look at your teeth and gums. Sometimes issues can be happening below the surface which may only be visible once an x-ray is taken.

As crowns and bridges are custom made to fit your teeth, your dentist will need to see you for two visits.

Your first appointment will be to prepare the damaged tooth if it is a crown or the two teeth either side of the gap where the missing tooth or teeth are. The dentist will place a temporary crown or bridge over the trimmed teeth to protect them whilst the lab technicians use the digital scan or impression sent by your dentist to make your new teeth.

Your final visit will be around one to two weeks later to fit the permanent restoration. Special requests for express manufacture can be made if you need the treatment to be completed sooner. Additional charges may apply.
