A crown or a cap is actually a cover placed over your damaged or weakened tooth to bring back its natural look and prevent further deterioration. It is used when your tooth is broken, chipped, cracked, discoloured, misshapen, heavily filled or if fillings have been lost. It helps to cover the unprotected area of a tooth with a root canal treatment for replacing old filings or for cosmetic reasons. In simple words, crowns are a restorative and cosmetic method since they replace a tooth without removing the natural one.
Different types of crowns are available depending on the need of the individual that will wear it. Our dentist will suggest the best option based on the location of the crown. They may recommend a resin, ceramic or gold crowns. Our dental surgeon will use his expertise and modern technology to try and match the new crown with the shape of your present teeth and their colour.
Crowns are used the patients who suffer from the following dental concerns:
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth used to restore the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are connected by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a false tooth in the middle. The three types of bridges are – traditional, cantilever and Maryland-bonded. They are the perfect choice for people who are missing one or two teeth and do not want a denture. Bridges help to get back the lost smile with natural-looking restorative teeth on both sides of the gap.
Our dental surgeon will take X-rays and impressions of the affected area that require a bridge. He will also take photographs to plan out bridge restoration for you. Depending on the number of consecutive teeth that you are missing, your bridge may be three or more units, two crowns attached to the teeth on either side of the space known as abutments and one or more artificial teeth called pontics, for filling any empty spaces. He will create a customised bridge for your mouth that will function and look just like your natural teeth. Besides that, our dentist may also take extra impressions after he makes abutment teeth ready for the bridge.
People who require bridges are the ones who want to:
When a sudden toothache interrupted my London trip, I had the good fortune to be referred to Dr. Wahab Shakir.
He was exceptionally through, identified the problem(s), and provided me with an action plan (report and x-rays) to convey to my dentist back in the States. He also prescribed the really helpful medication I needed for my flight home.
He truly was a godsend, and I am most grateful!!
I have been a patient for the last year and I have always been satisfied with the treatments I received. The dentists, their assistants and the receptionist are friendly, informative and very professional.
The clinic is modern and well equipped.
I recommended this clinic to all my friends and few of them went there. They were extremely pleased- and I must say that I wasn’t surprised.
The kindest and most professional dentist I have seen in London. Not only the dentist, but also the other staff. They show honesty and understanding and they handled my emergency without any objections. I visited this practise for a cavity feeling. The dentist made it fun, and his work was truly professional! Highly recommended!
I have been in London for two years and have had to go to the dentist twice for quite important operations (a root canal treatment and an extraction).
The staff of the clinic is kind and efficient, I immediately felt in good hands.
Dr. Fabrizio Castellari is simply one of the best dentists I've ever had: serious empathic and able to work in total absence of pain.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist I have ever found. Thank you for everything.
