Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to cover (or cap) teeth to reinforce tooth structure, fix broken down teeth and improve function and cosmetic appearance. Our crowns are designed to accurately reproduce the natural character, tooth colour, texture and shape. Modern ceramics guarantee a long functional life provided they are kept clean and are regularly checked.

Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth, improve colour or to give it a specific shape or form. They are made either of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or gold. They can be placed on implants to replace a missing tooth and also to close gaps. Crowns achieve aesthetically excellent results.

Ceramic crowns are the best choice for a natural look and offer excellent aesthetic results. Advantages of a full ceramic crown are:

  • Excellent aesthetics
  • High durability with stability
  • High accuracy
  • Biocompatibility

Onlay/Inlay

Broken teeth or leaking fillings can be restored using inlays, which are made from either porcelain or gold. They are much stronger than conventional fillings but more conservative than crowns. CEREC inlays/onlays are available at the York clinic and can be manufactured and fitted in one appointment.

Dental Bridges

When a tooth is missing or lost, leaving a gap, a bridge can be placed using crowns on the teeth next to the gap to hold a false tooth in place.

We use only the highest quality dental materials to fabricate well fitted dental bridges. We work very closely with our dental technician at every stage of fabrication of a bridge to help achieve natural looking, functional teeth that are often cosmetically indistinguishable from surrounding natural teeth.

Benefits of Bridges:

  • Can be a permanent alternative to dentures.
  • Help restore and maintain the way you bite.
  • Prevent unnatural stress on other teeth.
  • Distribute forces more evenly on teeth during chewing.
  • Prevent drifting and tilting of teeth.
  • Improve function and efficiency of dentures.
  • Alternative solutions for missing teeth include dental implants and partial dentures.

Super caring practice with friendly and professional treatment.All the members of the practice are excellent, not just the dentists but also the nurses and other staff. As one of those highly nervous patients I have not had any problems and am no longer extremely nervous about my visits. Highly recommend

Always happy with the service. The dental technicians are friendly and the costs are always outlined before any work is completed so there are no surprises. Needed an appointment for emergency dental work and they saw me the following day (they actually offered same day but I could not make the appointment). 5 Stars.

I have a dental phobia and have been attending the practice for a number of years. I required a crown to be fitted, despite my considerable concerted efforts, anxiety overtook me during the treatment and I had a panic attack. Sanjay, my dentist was amazing. He took time to calm me, there was absolutely no discomfort and the dental work was completed successfully. I have no hesitation in recommending this practice and thank Sanjay and also the staff at the practice for their kind, sympathetic and professional approach.

Fantastic staff here always very friendly and helpful, most of all my Dentist Ashley is absolutely spot on very professional, and extremely good at his job to the point me and my family travel all the way from Hemingbrough to York for our appointments and if he ever leaves here then we will look at moving to somewhere in Selby.

The staff at the surgery are fantastic, always so helpful & friendly on reception. My 8 year old son had a root canal & the surgeon was amazing with him. Answered all his questions & managed to hide the needles from him. She really put us both at ease and made what I thought was going to be awful a good experience for both of us. I can highly recommend this practice :)
