Modern dental crowns or bridges are far removed from restorations of old.
They are more lifelike and longer-lasting than ever before and provide a harmonious blend of both beauty and functionality.

Crowns are dental restorations designed to cover the visible part of a tooth – the part above the gum line that you see when a person smiles.
They are fitted to protect a tooth that has been damaged or weakened through decay, malfunction or in the case of a root canal – after endodontic treatment. They are also used to top a dental implant.
Dental crowns are made from several materials including porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-ceramic, ceramic, all-porcelain, pressed ceramic and, in some cases, gold alloy. Our Chesham patients can benefit from quality, lifelike restorations that blend effortlessly into their existing smile.
As the name suggests, dental bridges are designed to ‘bridge’ the gap for a missing tooth or teeth, filling in any unsightly spaces.
Comprising of a pontic middle tooth (the tooth that bridges the gap) and abutment teeth (dental crowns that fit over the teeth immediately adjacent to the gap) a dental bridge creates a lifelike and durable restoration.
Dental bridges can also be held in place by dental implants and are typically made from dental porcelain with a ceramic base to provide the best blend of durability and aesthetics.
In addition to restoring an incomplete smile, dental bridges provide a host of other benefits that include:
Our crowns and bridges are made using high-quality materials that are safe, proven and effective and can be colour-matched to blend in with your existing smile for a flawless finish.
We also offer flexible finance plans or multiple payments to help you get the treatment you need or want.
Crowns or bridges treatments here at York House will typically be carried out over several visits and at the end of the process, you will have a stronger, healthier and confidence-boosting smile that you can be proud of.
Dental crowns and bridges can be used to fix a number of dental problems including:
Naturally, there are added costs involved but it does mean that, unlike conventional bridges, adjacent supporting teeth won’t need to be reshaped to support the abutment restorations of a dental bridge. This is because a dental implant is a standalone restoration in its own right – a restoration that is strong enough to support itself and the bridging tooth.
Reshaping supporting teeth can weaken them and may cause them to become prone to dental problems later on in life. So what you may save initially when opting for conventional bridges might cost you more in the long run.
The average crown or bridge should last somewhere between 5 and 10 years. However, several factors may affect how long your restoration will last. These include:
Firstly, check to see if it remains intact. You want to avoid swallowing any pieces. Next, call your emergency dentist. If they are unable to see you right away, then chemists sell dental cement. Apply this sparingly to your restoration and place it over your tooth or teeth. This should be a temporary fix until you can get to see your dentist.
