Cosmetic Fillings

Unlike silver [amalgam] fillings, white fillings bonds to the teeth and are less noticeable than silver, they come in a range of shades so they can be matched to the shade of your own teeth.

A tooth needs less preparation for a white filling than for a silver filling

White filling material can be used on back teeth

Crowns and Bridges

Porcelain bonded to metal. A metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over the metal.


Alloy crowns. A combination of metal alloys are used to increase its strength, which makes it a very hardwearing restoration. These crowns are silver or gold in colour.

Metal Free crowns - give a better aesthetic result than metal bonded crowns.


High performance ceramic crowns [Lava] - made from zirconium dioxide [zirconia]. Is suitable for crowns, veneers and bridges at the front and back of the mouth. The material achieves a flexible strength of 1300mpa. Extremely  strong and durable excellant aesthetics due to the translucency of the zironia framework.


All-ceramic crowns [e-max] - Its pressable technology delivers the ultimate fit, strength and aesthetics. Can be used when making crowns, veneers, bridges, inlays and onlays.


Ceramic-composite crowns [GC Gradia] - It is an advanced 'MFR composite'. Especially suited for posterior [back] high wear, high-pressure restorations that are prone to chipping or cracking when made with porcelain. Easy to polish to a natural super gloss.


Your dentist will be able to advise you on which crown option will be the best for you, every person's occulsion [bite] is different and this is taken into consideration.
