Do you have a broken, worn excessively or large portion of tooth destroyed by decay? Do you want to improve the appearance of one or more teeth in your mouth, why not consider a crown?
Improving your tooth’s appearance and making it stronger are the benefits of crowns & bridges. Dental crown helps to strengthen a tooth by being an outer shell that encases the tooth within. Crowns can be made out of different materials. The preferred material for a crown at the moment is porcelain. Offering a secure, strong and long-lasting material, porcelain can act like a natural tooth in all the required circumstances.
A crown will protect a weak tooth from fracturing, restore a fractured tooth, cover a dental implant or cover a discoloured or poorly shaped back tooth or cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment. Crowns are used in both restorative and cosmetic cases and this may be just one of the procedures we recommend to enhance your smile and improve your dental health.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. Perhaps, a dental bridge may be what you need. A bridge replaces missing teeth by literally ‘bridging’ the gap where one or more teeth are missing.
A traditional dental bridge is a false tooth, fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding the dental bridge in place are attached onto your natural teeth on each side of the false tooth.
Dental bridge is an excellent option for replacing one or more missing teeth as it can reduce your risk of gum disease, improves function and speech, and help correct bite issues.
