If you have any missing teeth, or they are simply starting to weaken and deteriorate, crowns or bridges could be the most suitable solution. Our dental crowns can strengthen your teeth and prevent them from fracturing, whilst simultaneously improving their appearance. By covering the damaged tooth, our crowns can restore almost any cosmetic problem and give you the confidence you need to smile more.
Alternatively, our dental bridges may be used as a replacement if your teeth are actually missing. Bridges span the area where there are gaps and are cemented to the surrounding teeth that are still in place. Just like crowns, patients can choose the material for their bridges after receiving some advice from a professional. In fact, crowns and bridges can even be used together to provide superior restoration and improvement.
Before either crowns or bridges can be fitted, the tooth/teeth have to be reduced in size to make space for the new fixture. Porcelain or ceramic crowns and bridges can be matched to the colour of your teeth for a more natural result. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions regarding crowns and/or bridges.
If your teeth are damaged, discoloured or missing altogether, crowns and bridges are worth considering. Not only will they improve your cosmetic appearance, they also allow you to chew your food properly and speak without any inhibitions. Rather than putting pressure on your remaining healthy teeth when you chew, crowns and bridges will help you to distribute this pressure evenly so that you don’t end up damaging your healthy teeth as well.
By ensuring your bone structure remains stronger for longer, crowns and bridges will help maintain the shape of your face. As long as you care for them diligently by brushing twice a day and flossing regularly they will remain aesthetically pleasing as well as strong and supportive for the foreseeable future.
