Crowns and bridges

At Lander we are experienced practitioners in advanced restorative dentistry. Where possible it is always our goal to save as much of the natural tooth as we can, rebuild it and strengthen it to restore your mouth to full health. 

We create bespoke ceramic crowns to restore individual teeth, and bridges that are designed to replace several adjacent missing teeth. 

 A crown is a tooth shaped covering cemented into place over an existing tooth or used to cover a dental implant. 

A bridge is a means of replacing a missing tooth by crowning the adjacent teeth and suspending a false tooth or pontic (bridge) between them. 

We are the only practice in Cornwall to offer same day crown treatment with a CEREC machine.

Repairingteeth Crowns

There are a number of instances in which you may need an individual crown. A crown functions as (attractive looking) armour to protect an already weak tooth from decay or fracture. It can restore a tooth that has been severely worn down and completely cover and hold in place a tooth with a large filling where there isn’t a lot of natural tooth left. Ceramic crowns are also often used for cosmetic reasons to cover misshapen or severely discoloured teeth.

We are able to produce our crowns in-house from dental porcelain using the CEREC™ machine – one of the most advanced machines available in dentistry. This state-of-the-art equipment enables us to take high resolution 3D digital images of your teeth and design a crown that will perfectly fit with your existing teeth in terms of its shape, colour and natural finish. Gone are the days of making impressions and waiting on external laboratories. 

Using the CEREC™ machine our clinicians are able to design and sculpt the new tooth while you wait and fit within hours of the first appointment, so you can walk out the same day with a completely rejuvenated and healthy smile.

For the more challenging cases we are able to produce top quality crown and bridgework with the help of our dental laboratories. We work with expert ceramists who are now able to produce beautifully natural looking ceramic restorations.



When your tooth shows signs of decay, your Lander Dental & Implant Clinic dentist can help to stop it before any further damage is caused. Fillings are applied to small and developing cavities to restore your tooth back to health.
