Dental Crowns & Bridges in Nicosia
Natural, Long-Lasting Smile With Dental Restorations
For dental restoration, two standout solutions are crowns and bridges.
Crowns are ‘caps’, usually crafted from porcelain, to cover a damaged tooth, giving it the shape, size, and strength of a natural tooth. Bridges, on the other hand, are fixed solutions that ‘bridge’ the gap created by one or more missing teeth, anchored firmly by natural teeth or implants.
Both serve the pivotal role of restoring your smile’s beauty and function. Beyond veneers and implants, our dedicated services in crowns and bridges ensure that damaged or missing teeth do not stand in the way of your radiant smile.
Whether you need a single crown to restore a damaged tooth or a long-lasting bridge to replace multiple missing teeth, call our expert dentists at Symeou Dental Center Nicosia. With our advanced and innovative dental solutions, you’ll regain the confidence of a complete, functional, and beautiful set of teeth!
The Difference Between Crowns & Bridges
Patients often ask, “What’s the difference between dental crowns and dental bridges?”
With proper care, crowns and bridges should last more than 10 years.
Types of Crowns
These crowns seamlessly blend in, making them an ideal choice for improved aesthetics and a natural appearance.
With their remarkable durability and natural look, these ceramic crowns closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function. This makes them a popular choice for achieving a stunning smile while ensuring long-lasting results.
While they may not mimic the appearance of natural teeth, they are durable, particularly for teeth that bear significant chewing force. However, due to many disadvantages, they are rarely used.
At Symeou Dental Center Nicosia, we offer Porcelain and Zirconia Crowns tailored to suit your unique preferences and functional requirements.
Apart from traditional crown-making methods, digital dentistry now allows us to provide you with all-ceramic crowns in a single visit!

Types of Bridges
These bridges consist of pontics – artificial teeth – that are held in place by dental crowns affixed to adjacent teeth. This classic approach offers a reliable and effective way to replace missing teeth, restoring both function and aesthetics.
When only one neighboring tooth is available for support, cantilever bridges come to the rescue. These bridges provide a solution for cases where a traditional bridge may not be feasible.
Maryland bridges feature a framework bonded to the back of adjacent teeth, eliminating the need for crowns. This option preserves the structure of neighboring teeth while still offering the benefits of bridge restoration.
Anchored to dental implants, these bridges offer remarkable support and mimic the feel and appearance of natural teeth.
Bridges made using our Cerec system can be fabricated and permanently cemented in place on the same day. Contact us to learn more!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the procedure for crown & bridge?
Getting a crown and bridge includes tooth preparation, taking impressions, placing temporary restorations, crafting the permanent restoration in a dental laboratory, and securing the permanent restoration in its place.
Are crowns or bridges better?
Crowns and bridges fulfill distinct roles in dental treatment. Crowns are employed to repair individual damaged teeth, whereas bridges are utilized for replacing missing teeth. The decision between the two depends on your unique dental requirements and circumstances.
How soon can you eat after a bridge?
Following the placement of a bridge, it is advisable to wait until the anesthesia wears off before eating. Additionally, it is crucial to avoid hard or sticky foods initially to prevent any potential dislodgement or damage to the newly placed bridge.
What is the disadvantage of a bridge crown?
A drawback of a bridge crown is that it requires the preparation and crowning of adjacent healthy teeth. Furthermore, in case of failure or damage to the bridge, the entire restoration may need replacement.
Are dental bridges worth the money?
Investing in dental bridges can be highly beneficial as they restore missing teeth, enhance oral function, improve aesthetics, and contribute to maintaining teeth alignment. It is essential to discuss with your dentist to weigh the costs and advantages and choose the most suitable treatment option for your needs.
Do you need a root canal for a bridge?
If any of the teeth supporting the bridge need treatment for decay, infection, or damage, a root canal may be necessary. Your dentist will evaluate the condition of the supporting teeth and suggest any required treatments accordingly.
Do crowns look like real teeth?
Certainly, crowns are meticulously designed to match the color, shape, and size of natural teeth. They are individually tailored to blend flawlessly with your existing teeth, resulting in a smile that looks natural and harmonious.
Who is suitable for a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is designed primarily to replace one or more missing teeth by spanning the gap where the teeth once stood. Therefore, a candidate suitable for a dental bridge should present the below conditions:
- One or Several Missing Teeth
- Healthy Teeth on Either Side of the Gap
- Good Oral Hygiene
- Stable Jaw Bone and Gum Health
- Desire for a Fixed Solution
Some individuals might not be candidates for dental implants due to insufficient bone density, certain medical conditions, or personal preferences. For them, dental bridges might be a preferable solution.
