Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are both types of dental restorations used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. 

A dental crown is a “cap” that is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these. They are custom-made to fit over the prepared tooth.

A dental bridge is a fixed appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge consists of two or more dental crowns that are attached to the remaining natural teeth on either side of the gap, with a false tooth (or teeth) in between. The bridge is anchored in place, filling the gap with a natural-looking replacement tooth or teeth.

Both dental crowns and bridges are often recommended for teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma, or for teeth that are missing or severely weakened.

Our dentists will be able to advise you on whether a crown or bridge is the best option for your particular situation.

Same day crowns

At Chalfont Dentist we use the latest techniques in digital dentistry. With the use of intra-oral scanning technology and CAD/CAM technology, we are able to fabricate a dental crown on the same day. 

Our CEREC crowns are a same-day solution allowing you to walk into the practice with your existing tooth and walk out with a brand-new crown. They are the same high quality as our usual crowns, but they’ll be ready within a couple of hours as opposed to a couple of weeks.

This is the perfect solution for busy patients as you won’t have to wait around for your crowns to be made. Everything can be finished for you in just one appointment.
