Dental Crown and Dental Bridges (Two or more crowns)

A dental crown is like a special sleeve made of metal or porcelain, or both, that goes over a damaged or weak tooth.

Your dentist will match it up to the shape and, in the case of porcelain crowns, the colour of your other teeth so it will look natural.

A dental bridge is a means of restoring a gap in your teeth. It consists of two or more crowns.

  • Add strength and resilience back to damaged teeth and smiles
  • Restore your smile back to its original form
  • Easier to speak and eat
  • Improve self-confidence

What Is A Dental Crown?

A crown is a piece of porcelain that we use when we have a seriously damaged tooth in order to improve it’s longevity.

We can assess your suitability for a dental crown at one of our free consultations. We can give you a treatment plan which will allow you to make a more educated decision on your suitability.

It is not painful to get a dental crown. If we feel the need to, we can numb the area and on that appointment we do the crown operation, send the impressions to the lab and adapt a temporary crown which you will use for about 3 weeks.

You will then come back and we will cement a final crown.

What is the Process for a Dental Crown or Bridge?

I’m very happy!

John Barrett

Our dentist will make a tooth coloured shell that will click over your teeth to replace the missing or damaged tooth.

After the preparation procedure, we’ll place a temporary crown or bridge so at no stage will you be leaving with an unsightly gap.

When the crown is fitted, your dentist will make small adjustments to make sure you can bite comfortably. The crown is tried on first, and then glued into place.

About a month ago I had terrible pain and a good friend who works as a dental nurse recommended this practice to me. They were able to accommodate me with an emergency appointment almost immediately. When I went in all the staff were so welcoming and friendly and did their best to put me at ease (I'm an extremely nervous patient). My dentist Paul was really fantastic and I couldn't recommend him highly enough!

I have been attending 3 Dental Clinic for the past number of years, and have had quite a lot of work done. I must compliment Dr. Paul O'Connell and his extended team for the excellent care and attention that I have received. The staff have always been friendly, and I have only had good experiences with them. I could not recommend them highly enough. They are also very reasonably priced, from my experience. - John P Clancy

Let’s face it the mere mention of the word dentist can cause you to grind your teeth and winch in anticipation however this dental practice has def got something special, whether it’s their state of the art equipment the range of service of the incredible staff I cannot say. Maybe a combination. On my last visit I was looked after by Caroline & Emma they put me very much at ease and were very natural in their approach. Well done to the whole team 3dental is def in a league of their own. I will always recommend them to everyone even the ones with perfect teeth. Thanks guys for always helping me to smile 😃

A big thank you to Nikki and the team at 3 Dental. For someone who dreads the dentist I almost forgot where I was after walking through the door. Staff greeted me by name and put me at ease straight away. Fillings were quick and pain free. Appointments were on time and I have never been waiting or delayed. I would highly recommend this practice.
