Crowns and Bridges in Central Hong Kong

What’s The Difference?

Crowns can help protect a tooth broken or heavily filled, or one with an old filling that is leaking. Caps are also placed after a root canal. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and prevent the adjacent teeth from moving into the empty space. Bridges are used if the bone is not stable enough for a dental implant.

What to Expect

We have a CEREC system to fabricate same-day crowns. Rather than physical impressions, we have scanning technology to create digital impressions. It’s necessary to reduce the size of your existing tooth somewhat, so that the crown or bridge will fit over the tooth without adding bulk to your smile. Based on your digital impressions, we’ll use our CEREC milling machine to create your crown, and then place it at the same appointment.

We have a full-time CEREC technician who makes 90% of our crowns in-house. In some complex cases, we will send your digital impressions to the lab to fabricate the crown.

Whether you’re getting a crown or a bridge, we’ll show you a gallery of pre- and post-procedure
photos from other patients, so you can see what a wonderful difference it can make in your smile.

You’re in Control

New patients are sometimes reluctant to have a crown because they’re afraid it will hurt, or because they’ve had a bad experience at a different dentist in the past. We take our time to explain everything and answer all your questions, and offer sedation options so you won’t feel anything. If you need a break, we will take a break. We help you feel confident and in control of the process.

Root Canal

Because a root canal can leave a tooth very weak and susceptible to fracture, we always recommend a crown after a root canal. We tell patients not to have a root canal, unless they are also willing to have the crown placed.
