At Northland Prosthodontics, we custom make all of the crowns and bridges for patients. We absolutely love making beautiful crowns for our patients. We can customize crowns and bridges to look exactly as the patient wants.
We have a customized method of crown and bridge shape and colour selection using digital technology. You will experience the team effort with the skills in crown colour and shape selection with my experienced dental surgery assistant, Lesa who pays meticulous attention to detail with many years prior experience in the beauty industry, which is a great asset for our cosmetic dentistry.
It is most relevant that all your crown laboratory work will be done in New Zealand with highly qualified dental technicians in New Zealand or Australia, together with materials that meet New Zealand Health and Safety practices. None of the laboratory work is sent offshore to countries like China or Thailand where often substandard materials are used in the efforts of reduced costs.
I work closely with several ceramic dental technicians based in Auckland. Digital technology enables constant communication between us, ensuring the production of the best possible dentures.
Bridges restore your smile and the ability to properly chew and speak.
They maintain the shape of your face and distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth. A regular dental bridge is made up of two crowns one on each tooth on either side of the gap in your teeth whereas an implant bridge is supported by implants.
A crown is a restoration that covers, or “caps,” a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are necessary when a tooth is generally broken down and fillings won’t solve the problem.

An initial prosthodontic consultation is usually recommended to determine your treatment needs. You don’t need a referral for this. Give us a call on 09 430 0046 or Email Us.
