Crowns & Bridges
The durable solution

Crowns or bridges are placed if the original teeth or molars need to be replaced permanently.


What are crowns and bridges?

A crown is a cover made of ceramic material that can be placed over a filed tooth.

A dental bridge consist of two or more connected crowns that are used to replace missing teeth.

  • Manufactured by our dental technician
  • Natural look
  • Durable

How it works


The dentist takes a little layer of the tooth or molar to make room for the crown or bridge. Then we look at the desired color together with you.


We make an impression of your teeth for our dental technician so that he can give the crown or bridge the correct shape on the model. You will go home with an emergency crown or bridge.


In the laboratory, your crown or bridge is made to measure and color by our dental technician.


After about two weeks, the crown or bridge will be placed. This will be performed by your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a crown?

A crown is a cap made of all-ceramic material that fits exactly over a tooth or molar.

What is a bridge?

A bridge is two or more crowns that are connected to each other via a bridge part. The bridge is made by our dental technician to replace missing teeth. These bridges are always very solid because we connect the metal parts well with the durable porcelain. This porcelain is wear-resistant so that we can even make the chewing surfaces of porcelain.

When is a crown needed?

A crown is needed if:

  • Too much of the tooth or molar has disappeared due to tooth decay to be able to make a filling.
  • The tooth has broken off due to an accident.
  • The teeth are so discolored that it is desirable from a cosmetic point of view.
  • A tooth has had a root canal treatment that makes them more susceptible to fracture.
What is the lifespan of a crown?

Depending on the health of the tooth or molar underneath, a crown will last for many years. It is important to know that a crown is not completely insensitive to tooth decay. Keeping the crown and gums clean is therefore very important.

What does a crown at the dentist cost?

This can differ per (pre-) treatment. You can request a budget for the treatment with an indication of the costs. The dentist will charge the costs of the crown itself separately. The costs are partly determined by the material of which the crown is made and the durability. The dentist calculates the purchase costs for this; on request you have the right to view the invoice for the crown.
