Crowns & Bridges

In need of a restorative dental treatment for a damaged or missing tooth? Our dental crowns and bridges can help transform your smile, both functionally and aesthetically.


When it comes to rejuvenating a damaged tooth, dental crowns stand out as a top solution. These tailor-made caps have transformed countless smiles.

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a customised covering for a tooth. Designed to mimic the shape, size, and colour of your natural tooth, it encases the visible part of the tooth above the gum line.

When would I need a dental crown?

Dental crowns come to the rescue in several circumstances:

  • Restoring a severely decayed tooth
  • Protecting a weakened tooth from breaking
  • Holding together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Enhancing the appearance of discoloured or misshapen teeth

The dental crown procedure

The process of getting a crown usually involves two visits:

  • The initial visit focuses on examining the tooth, taking impressions, and placing a temporary crown.
  • A dental laboratory then crafts your custom crown.
  • During the second visit, Dr Ivana Bugwandeen will fit and adjust your custom-made crown, ensuring it feels just right.

How should I care for my crown?

Maintain them as you would your natural teeth: regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups. Although crowns resist stains, it’s wise to avoid frequent consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine.


Dental bridges live up to their name by bridging the gaps left by missing teeth. Offering both functional and aesthetic benefits, they’re a popular choice for many of our patients.

What are dental bridges?

A bridge comprises one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, held in place by dental crowns anchored to the adjacent natural teeth or implants.

When would I need a dental bridge?

Apart from the aesthetic appeal of a gap-free smile, bridges:

  • Restore your ability to chew and speak correctly
  • Maintain your face’s natural shape
  • Redistribute bite force evenly
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

How is a dental bridge crafted and placed?

Like crowns, dental bridges typically need two appointments.

  • Initially, the anchoring teeth are prepared for crowns, and impressions are taken.
  • A dental laboratory then crafts your custom bridge.
  • During the second visit, the bridge is adjusted for fit and cemented into place.

How do I care for my dental bridge?

Oral hygiene is crucial! Cleaning under the bridge using superfloss, floss threaders, or interdental brushes prevents build-up. Combined with regular check-ups, you’ll ensure the longevity of your bridge.

Together, dental crowns and bridges offer comprehensive solutions for various dental challenges. Book your appointment today!
