Crown and Bridge Treatments
From HQ Dental
In addition to conventionally produced gold, porcelain bonded to metal, composite or feldspathic porcelain options we offer a full range of advanced restorations utilising Press and Cad Cam technologies.
From our digital suite, processing both digital and conventional impressions, we Cad Cam produce Zirconia, Non-precious metal and PMMA restorations and substructures.
Our bespoke crown & bridge range are expertly hand crafted for the finest aesthetic results. We can provide:
To look completely natural and totally convincing every crown or bridge needs to be as individual as you are. At HQ dental everything is custom made in house by our skilled technicians. This direct line of communication always guarantees the best possible results.
All our crown and bridge cases involve technician shade taking for the best results every time.
To survive the enormous forces of biting and chewing all crowns and bridges need to be incredibly strong, This means they need to have a high strength core material. Conventional crowns have a cast metal core, but the very latest hi-tech crowns and bridges have a CAD CAM designed zirconia core. These fit more accurately and because they are tooth coloured all the way through they look more natural, too.
On top of the core material we build the crown up in different layers of porcelain. By doing so we can incorporate different colours and other internal characterisation. These can include areas of opacity or translucency and even fluorescence. This porcelain is baked onto the core material.
Finally we finish the crown or bridge by ‘glazing’ it with a layer of translucent porcelain. At this point we can also add surface staining for an even better result. When a complex colour match is required we sometimes do this with our patient present for the best result possible.
