Crowns and bridges

Dental crowns in Hornsby are caps that cover teeth that are heavily damaged or decayed. They can be used individually or they can be integrated into a bridge. A bridge is comprised of at least three crowns.

Crowns cover up missing teeth above the gum. They also provide added strength so that your missing or damaged tooth can function as normal in your mouth. Today’s crowns are hardly distinguishable from the surrounding teeth in your mouth, as they are made from high quality dental ceramics.

What Can You Expect From A Dental Crown Procedure?

You will generally need two visits to your dentist. Your first visit will be spent preparing your tooth for the crown. Your tooth may need to be drilled into, or it may need to be built up, depending on your circumstances.

After the preparation is complete your dentist will cast impressions and send them to the lab to make a model of your mouth. This is so that the crown can match the aesthetic of you natural teeth.

Your dentist may apply a temporary crown to your teeth until the permanent crown is ready to be applied.

What Is A Bridge?

A dental bridge in Hornsby covers the entire space left by your missing teeth and is made up of at least three crowns attached together. Two crowns are required to anchor the bridge in place in your mouth. These teeth are on either side of the missing tooth, and will be placed over your natural teeth. The crown for the missing tooth is called a pontic.

Your dentist will need to prepare the adjacent teeth so that the bridge can be secured to them. Because the bridge will sit on your gum it is important to go for regular dental check ups to ensure that decay does not develop.
