Dental Crowns & Bridges
What are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Dental crowns and bridges are restorative dental solutions that can be used in combination with dental implants. They are custom-made prosthetic devices designed to replace missing or damaged teeth and restore both the appearance and function of your smile.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth to protect it and restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. It can also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen or discoloured teeth.
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) that are anchored to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. The neighbouring teeth or implants act as support for the bridge.
The Procedure: The process of getting dental crowns or bridges typically involves the following steps:
1. Evaluation: Our dental team will assess your oral health, discuss your dental concerns, and determine if dental crowns or bridges are the right treatment for you.
2. Preparation: To create space for the dental crown or bridge, the affected tooth or teeth may be gently reshaped or reduced in size.
3. Impression: An impression of your teeth will be taken to create a custom-made crown or bridge that fits perfectly in your mouth.
4. Temporary Restoration: While your permanent crown or bridge is being crafted in a dental lab, a temporary one will be placed to protect your teeth.
5. Fitting and Placement: Once your custom restoration is ready, it will be securely attached to your tooth or dental implant with the help of dental cement.
