Crowns and bridges are a great, long-lasting option for the restoration of teeth.


A crown is used as a ‘cap’ over an existing tooth or dental implant, helping improve the tooth’s colour, size and shape, and even its position in the mouth. They are colour-matched to your natural teeth for a more realistic appearance.


A bridge is used to fill the gap left by missing teeth. The bridge will use crowns to anchor over the remaining teeth, with a replacement tooth in the centre to slot between. Whether you need a crown or bridge, the affected tooth (or teeth) will be preparing first, in order for the prosthetics to fit properly.

Crowns and bridges are manufactured specifically for your needs. If you want to learn more, contact us today.

I’ve been going to Dentique for many years. Always sympathetic to what you require. I have very sensitive teeth and they always take great care. Reception staff are always friendly and put you at ease if you’re nervous. Nice atmosphere and stress free. Dental standards are the best and everything explained.

Frequently asked questions
Crowns and Bridges at Dentique Dental Practice

  1. Crowns have many purposes. From protecting or restoring a damaged tooth, to covering an implant. They can also mask over a tooth that’s discoloured, oddly shaped or had previous treatment.

    Crowns can also help restore function to your teeth.

  2. Bridges are a better option for when there are one or more missing teeth. If you are left with gaps, your remaining teeth could turn or move. This leads to issues such as bite problems, gum disease and bone loss.

  3. With care, crowns and bridges last a lifetime. However, this depends on the individual and wear and tear and having good oral hygiene.

    A bridge needs the support of the surrounding teeth. It is important to keep your teeth and gums healthy and have professional cleaning carried out at our practice.

  4. There are a number of material options available. Including metal, porcelain or ceramic. We typically use zirconia for our crowns.

  5. Crowns are fixed to your natural tooth. They can become chipped, loose or fall off altogether. In the case of chips, occasionally they can be repaired. The crown can remain intact. If you have a loose crown, or it has come away from the tooth, it may be possible to re-affix at our practice.

  6. If you have decay under the crowns of the bridge, or it does not fit correctly, you can experience problems. Good oral hygiene is so important.

    We will advise you how to keep teeth and gums clean around the crown.

  7. Veneers can help improve the appearance of a tooth, while dental implants can replace missing teeth. These are both treatments we offer here at Dentique, Leicester.
