Principal Dentist


Tooth Crowns and Bridges are some of the most widely used restorative treatments, within the field of dentistry.

What is a crown?

Crowns can be an ideal way to rebuild teeth, which have been broken or weakened by decay.
The crown fits over the remaining part of the tooth, making it not only strong but also giving it the correct shape and contours of a natural tooth.

What is a bridge?

A bridge is made from the same material as a crown but is a method for filling in spaces. Most commonly, a tooth is missing after its extraction and the bridge uses the neighbouring tooth or teeth to hold a new space filling tooth in the gap.  With it being fixed to the neighbouring tooth, it is designed to stay permanently in place for the life span of the bridge.

Which type of crowns and bridges can I have?

Oakland Dental offers a comprehensive list of material choices for the Crowns and bridges to be made from.  Dependant on the circumstance in which the restoration will be used, we will help to guide you, towards the ideal solution.

The main material types are:

  • Porcelain fused to a metal substructure, for a cost effective aesthetic look
  • max All Porcelain, where aesthetics are paramount and a seamless integration with nature is desired
  • Zirconia All Porcelain, where a strong metal free alternative is required
  • Gold where longevity is the main aim
