Discover Dental Excellence with Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a restoration that is placed over the affected tooth to amend its shape, size or strength.

Crowns are typically used to cover a heavily filled or broken tooth as well as to provide strength after a root canal treatment. Crowns are also used to cover implants. They can also have an aesthetic use to cover stained or chipped teeth.

For many years, traditional metal-based crowns have been used to strengthen or rebuild teeth. Today, Porcelain Crowns are an effective aesthetically pleasing option. They are made to match the exact colour, texture and translucency of your natural teeth.

Crowns are used in both restorative and cosmetic cases, and during your consultation, this may be just one of the procedures we recommend to enhance your smile and improve your dental health.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a dental crown cost?

Our price for dental crowns starts from £889. The actual cost of a dental crown varies depending on factors such as the type of crown, materials used, etc. On average, the cost can range from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars.

Can I get dental crowns on NHS?

The availability of dental crowns on the NHS is typically limited to cases where there is a clear clinical need for the restoration, primarily for functional reasons rather than purely cosmetic purposes. The NHS prioritises essential dental treatments that address oral health needs and maintain overall well-being. Cosmetic procedures, including crowns for aesthetic reasons, may not be covered under the NHS. However, if a dental crown is deemed necessary for the restoration of a tooth’s function and health, it may be eligible for NHS coverage. Patients are advised to consult with us. We can assess your specific case and provide guidance on whether you qualify for NHS-funded dental crowns or if alternative options need to be considered through private dental services.

Why might I need a dental crown?

Dental crowns are recommended for various reasons, including protecting a tooth weakened by decay, supporting a tooth with a large filling, covering a dental implant, restoring a broken or chipped tooth, and improving the appearance of a discoloured or misshapen tooth.

How long do dental crowns last?

A person who can undergo tooth extractions or bridgework can undergo dental implant treatment. The location and the amount of bone available in the implant area is normally the major factor to be considered for any case. Normally implants are suitable and best option for most cases but its best to have a consultation with our dentist to check for suitability and ask any questions you might have for the treatment.

Are there different types of dental crowns?

Yes, dental crowns come in various types, including porcelain, metal, ceramic, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. Each type has unique properties, and the choice depends on factors like the tooth’s location, function, and aesthetic considerations.

Is the dental crown procedure painful?

The dental crown procedure is typically not painful. It involves numbing the tooth and surrounding area with local anaesthesia. Patients may experience some discomfort after the procedure, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

Can dental crowns fix a chipped tooth?

Yes, dental crowns are an effective solution for fixing a chipped tooth. The crown is customised to cover and protect the damaged tooth, restoring its shape, strength, and appearance.

Do dental crowns require special care?

While dental crowns do not require special care, maintaining good oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, is essential to ensure the longevity of the crown and the health of the surrounding teeth and gums.

Can dental crowns be used for cosmetic reasons?

Yes, dental crowns can be used for cosmetic purposes to enhance the appearance of teeth. They can improve the colour, shape, and alignment of teeth, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.

Can dental crowns be placed on front teeth?

Yes, dental crowns can be placed on front teeth to address cosmetic concerns, such as discolouration, chips, or misalignments. The crowns are customised to achieve a natural and harmonious appearance with the other front teeth.

What is the process of getting a dental crown?

The process involves preparing the tooth by removing a portion of its outer structure, taking impressions, and placing a temporary crown. A dental laboratory then fabricates the permanent crown, which is later cemented onto the prepared tooth during a second appointment.

What is the difference between crowns and veneers?

While both crowns and veneers are dental restorations, crowns cover the entire tooth, providing more extensive protection, while veneers only cover the front surface, mainly addressing cosmetic concerns.

How much does a dental bridge cost?

Our price of dental bridges starts from £1,785. The actual cost of a dental bridge varies depending on factors such as the type of bridge, materials used, etc.

Can I get dental bridges on NHS?

Same as dental crowns, the availability of dental bridges on the NHS is generally limited to cases where there is a clear clinical need for the restoration, primarily for functional reasons rather than purely cosmetic purposes. The NHS prioritises essential dental treatments that address oral health needs and maintain overall well-being. Dental bridges may be considered under the NHS if the loss of teeth significantly impacts functionality, such as chewing ability or bite alignment. Cosmetic reasons alone may not qualify for NHS-funded dental bridges. It is crucial for patients to consult with us. We can assess their specific case and provide guidance on whether they qualify for NHS-funded dental bridges or if alternative options need to be considered through private dental services.

Why might I need a dental bridge?

Dental bridges are recommended to restore the functionality and appearance of a smile after tooth loss. They help maintain proper tooth alignment, improve chewing ability, and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting into the gap.

How long do dental bridges last?

The lifespan of a dental bridge varies, but with proper care, they can last a decade or longer. Regular oral hygiene practices and dental check-ups contribute to the longevity of the bridge.

Are there different types of dental bridges?

Yes, there are different types of dental bridges, including traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges. Each type has specific applications depending on the location of the missing tooth or teeth.

What materials are used in dental bridges?

Dental bridges can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination. The choice depends on factors such as the location of the bridge, aesthetic considerations, and the patient’s preferences.

Is the dental bridge procedure painful?

The dental bridge procedure is generally not painful. It involves preparing the adjacent teeth, taking impressions, and placing a temporary bridge. Patients may experience some discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

Can dental bridges be used to replace multiple teeth?

Yes, dental bridges can be designed to replace multiple adjacent missing teeth. The number of pontics in the bridge depends on the extent of tooth loss.

Do dental bridges require special care?

While dental bridges do not require special care, maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, is crucial to ensure the longevity of the bridge and the health of surrounding teeth and gums.

Can dental bridges be placed on front teeth?

Yes, dental bridges can be placed on front teeth to address cosmetic concerns and restore functionality. The bridge is designed to complement the appearance of surrounding natural teeth.

What is the process of getting a dental bridge?

The process involves preparing the adjacent teeth, taking impressions, and placing a temporary bridge. A dental laboratory then fabricates the permanent bridge, which is later cemented onto the prepared teeth during a second appointment.

Can dental bridges be used for missing molars?

Dental bridges are commonly used to replace missing molars. The bridge provides stability, restores proper chewing function, and prevents adjacent teeth from shifting.

Are there alternatives to dental bridges?

Alternatives to dental bridges include dental implants, partial dentures, or removable dental bridges. The choice depends on factors such as the extent of tooth loss and individual preferences.

Had my first hygienist appointment with Sarah yesterday. She deserves the rating, my teeth look and feel clean and smooth. Sarah was gentle and thorough, hugely important to those of us with a fear of the invasiveness of dentistry. Next appointment booked!

I haven’t been to the dentist in over 10 years due to a very bad experience. My mother In law recommended Brooklands dental and I’m so pleased I listened to her. My teeth are in an awful state, I had a lot of tears leading up to my appointment and I cried in there too but Kirsty the receptionist was very reassuring, so kind and checked I was ok whilst I waited. Ana was amazing, she could see I was nervous but kept me calm, explained throughout what she was doing, put a dental plan in place with no pressure to commit to it. She didn’t judge the state of my teeth and was just so lovely and reassuring. I feel very confident that she is going to help me get my teeth and gums back on track so thank you so so much for your help and understanding

I have been going to Brooklands dental clinic for a number of years. Before going here I hadn't been to a dentist in over 20 years as I was petrified of dentists. However circumstances forced me to go. They were brilliant with me, kind, gentle and understanding. All the staff were fantastic. I have now been going for a long time and had lots of different treatments and I am finally over my fear. I highly recommend this practice for its kindness, efficiency and skill.
