Sometimes the most sensitive way to fill a gap is to utilise fillings that already exist in adjacent teeth.These fillings are removed and matching ‘wings’ attached to the bridge which fit into the spaces. Over time the gum can recede away from the crown this is known as the crown margin.The old crown can be removed and a new, deeper crown fitted to cover this area. Sometimes teeth are lost.The adjacent teeth are prepared.A Bridge is made which exactly matchs the space and is fitted across the gap. The broken or decayed tooth is prepared.An Inlay is made and fitted to the tooth.
White or Gold inlays are available.
