CROWNS AND BRIDGE
In the event of a tooth becoming so damaged and compromised that it can’t support a filling, or suffers from cracks, we can restore the tooth using a crown. Whether you need to protect a weak tooth, hold a bridge in place or want to make a cosmetic adjustment, we can provide a personalised consultation to suit your needs.
Dental crowns are designed to protect the portion of teeth above the gums and are often referred to as ‘caps’. Our procedure begins with replacing and building up a strong core for the tooth, preparing the tooth to the ideal shape and size, taking a mould of your tooth and sending it to our dental laboratory where the crown is manufactured out of porcelain, ceramic, or gold. When you return two weeks later, the crown is then fitted over the top using dental cement or adhesive.
Although dental crowns cannot decay, oral care is still needed to ensure the edge of the tooth in which it sits stays healthy and strong. Regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing is the best form of preventive treatment and should ensure your new crown stays strong for years to come.
If you have missing teeth and would like to restore the look and function of your teeth, you may require a dental bridge. Whilst a missing tooth can affect a person’s self-confidence, it can also lead to other oral health issues such as chewing problems, pain and teeth cracking from the extra stress on your teeth and jaw.
