Among extremely effective restorative dentistry options are crowns and bridges. Popular for their durability, these dental restorations not only replace missing teeth but also bring back your teeth’s aesthetics.
At Caringbah Dental Care, we take pride in producing quality crowns and bridges. Read on to learn more about how we can help.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are fixed dental restorations. They cover the target tooth to prevent further damage, improve performance, and improve overall aesthetics.
Dental crowns have the look and feel of a natural tooth. Made with durable materials, they can withstand the pressure from heavy chewing and other similar functions. With proper care and good oral hygiene, they can last a lifetime.
A dental crown is recommended for the following dental issues:
- Severe tooth decay
- Cracked or worn down tooth
- Unnatural tooth structure
- Discoloured tooth
- Tooth with a large tooth filling
- Used together with dental implants and bridges
Benefits Of Dental Crowns
The following are the benefits of dental crowns:
- Restore strength to tooth damaged by decay
- Return natural tooth structure
- Protect tooth from further damage
- Strengthen a tooth weakened by decay
- Protect tooth from further damage and strain
- Hold large fillings in place
- Whiten a discoloured tooth that resists natural teeth whitening
What Is A Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is also a fixed dental restoration. It replaces multiple missing teeth by bridging one natural tooth to another. These natural teeth serve as an anchor often capped with dental crowns.
Dental bridges can also last a long time with proper care. And while they can effectively replace multiple missing teeth, if there are no natural teeth left , the next option is a denture.
Benefits Of Dental Bridges
A dental bridge can do the following:
- Replace multiple missing teeth
- Restore biting and chewing capacity
- Restore speech
- Return normal face structure
- Stops remaining natural teeth from shifting out of place
- Prevents progressive bone loss caused by missing teeth
