Crowns are protective jackets, usually tooth-coloured, that are placed over a tooth to add strength when that tooth has been broken or is very worn, very heavily filled or has been root treated (which makes a tooth more brittle and liable to fracture).
Bridges are a method of replacing missing teeth when they have been lost. There are 2 types of fixed bridgework: adhesive or conventional. An adhesive bridge involves little tooth preparation. The adhesive bridge is bonded into place on the teeth adjacent to the gap. The second type of bridge is conventional bridgework usually involving the placement of a crown on the tooth behind and in front of the gap with a false tooth fused to, and situated in-between, the crowns.
"In all the years that l have sat in a dentist's chair I have never experienced the high level of dentistry that Douglas Miller provides. As I said to him: 'Douglas, if only I had known about you sooner!' I would not hesitate in recommending anybody to see Douglas Miller and his team in North Finchley."
