Porcelain Crown and Bridge Case Study

Angela came to our Glasgow practice requesting some cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of her top front teeth.

She was concerned about the colours and the missing tooth in the upper right of her mouth.

An old unsightly NHS porcelain crown exacerbated her concerns.

After a half hour consultation with Dr Murphy, discussing options such as a dental implant to replace the missing tooth, Angela decided to have a bridge to eliminate the space.

She also opted for some porcelain veneers and zirconium porcelain crowns on five other front teeth.

Matching veneers to the patient’s teeth

Our ceramist Alex attended Angela’s appointment, as he does for all such cosmetic dentistry cases to match his lab work to the shade of her teeth, selecting the appropriate colours and translucency of porcelain.

The space was eliminated and the treatment took just two weeks.

Treatment costs were £2610 for two teeth on a porcelain bridge, two zirconium porcelain crowns and three minimum preparation porcelain veneers.

Angela has returned to her regular dentist and has been encouraged to have six monthly treatments with a dental hygienist to avoid future gum shrinkage around the porcelain margins.
