Crown and Bridge Work in Whanganui and Palmerston North

A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” which fits over a tooth or remaining tooth structure. Crowns may be recommended to strengthen weakened or compromised teeth, support a denture, restore a dental implant or achieve an excellent aesthetic result. A number of materials are available which the dentist will discuss with you. Bridges are like crowns that are used to replace missing teeth (bridging the gap)

This is a discipline that Dr Swanepoel is particularly interested in. He has many years experience in full mouth rehabilitation work. He has an excellent reputation for his skill in this discipline which has seen him invited to Auckland and the Pacific Island to perform large and complex cases.
