If you have a tooth that is significantly decayed or damaged by trauma then we will want to protect it by covering it up with a crown. The crown will fit right over the tooth, restoring lost structure and strength. Our crowns can have a precious metal substructure that is coated with tooth coloured porcelain, or we can provide you with the very latest all-ceramic crowns that look amazingly natural and which are perfect for front teeth.
Bridges fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are anchored in place by crowns fitted over the teeth adjacent to the empty space. These crowns support the replacement teeth, each of which is called a pontic. Our bridges may be made with a metal substructure that is covered up with porcelain, but we can also provide all-ceramic bridges that are extremely strong and which can be used to replace multiple teeth located in the same area in your mouth.
One of the most advanced technological pieces of equipment in our practice is our CEREC machine. Crowns, bridges, veneers and other tooth coloured restorations would normally be made in a dental laboratory, require messy impression moulds and take two weeks to complete. Using our CEREC machine enables Dr Gagan Sandhu to create and secure your new replacement teeth in a single appointment, saving you time and expense.
