Dental crowns, bridges and veneers

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are excellent solutions for many tooth problems. Crowns can be used to save a damaged tooth, while bridges can be used to replace one or more teeth completely. They make saving a smile simple.

Both treatments are used to treat managed teeth. 

Dental crowns improve the structure, appearance and alignment of damaged teeth that can be saved. As the name suggested, they are a cover that is placed over a tooth. Dental crowns can repair broken and cracked teeth, improving strength. They are also used to protect teeth following root canal treatment.

Dental bridges are used to replace teeth entirely. They fill the gaps that remain after teeth have been removed. 

Dental crowns require the tooth being treat to be prepared. This process involves shaping the existing tooth to accept the crown. 

Dental bridges require the teeth adjacent to the gap, to be prepared. This process involves shaping the teeth to accept dental ‘bridge’ across the gap. 

Each treatment takes place over 2 to 3 visits. This allows for appropriate preparation for optimal adhesion. Great care is taken to match colour and shape for a natural appearance. 

Follow up visits may be required to make minor adjustments to further improve comfort. 

The installation of dental crowns and veneers can cause some discomfort. This is due to the preparation process, and ensuring your crown and bridge lasts.

Many patients will go through the entire process comfortably. Your dentist will use a numbing gel and local anaesthetic to increase comfort levels. 

Looking after your dental crowns and bridges starts with getting your dental hygiene basics right. 

Brushing, flossing and regular check-ups with your dentist will keep your dental crowns and bridges looking great and keep your mouth healthy.

Dental veneers are covers for teeth. They are used cover the front portion of the tooth. Dental veneers are traditionally made from porcelain, and sometimes composite materials. 

Porcelain veneers tend to be more popular as their appearance is very similar to natural teeth, which makes them a great solution for minor dental imperfections. 

They are often applied as a set to achieve a uniform appearance. 

Dental veneers require the surface of the tooth to be prepared. This process takes place over multiple visits and allows for appropriate preparation for optimal adhesion.

Great care is also taken to match colour and shape for a natural appearance. 

Dental veneers are used to correct broken, chipped and discolour teeth. 

They can also be used to correct minor alignment issues, such as smaller teeth or gaps.
