Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person's teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain crowns to make the smile appear "as new". This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems and ensures you retain your natural, healthy smile and functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology.
These treatments are used for a long lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
Fitting a crown may involve two visits to the clinic, the first to take impressions which are sent to a dental laboratory for manufacture, the second to have the crown fitted. However, at Cedar Clinic, we have the facility, where appropriate, to use CEREC, one of the most advanced products in world dentistry, which allows crowns to be made and fitted in just one visit. With the use of computer aided technology, you can watch the dentist design, manufacture and then fit an aesthetically perfect replacement for your old tooth.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold.
A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause "appearance" problems due to staining or chipping
