A crown is used when a tooth is severely decayed and a considerable amount of tooth substance is lost, and the tooth is too weak to function without added strength. A fractured tooth can be saved with a crown, as well as the crown will cap the tooth strongly together. A crown is fabricated in the dental laboratory.
BENEFITS OF USING DENTAL CROWNS
- A tooth that is misshapen can be improved with the help of a dental crown
- large dental filling can be covered by a dental crown to improve the tooth’s overall appearance, and also to strengthen the tooth
- A worn tooth, or one that has been cracked or chipped, can be covered by a dental crown to restore its form and function
- A dental crown can cover a dental implant, to provide solutions for missing teeth concerns
A bridge is used to take the place of a missing tooth/teeth, using the adjacent teeth as the base to support the bridge. Instead of wearing a removable denture, a bridge is a great saver as long as there are healthy supporting teeth on either side of the missing spot.
BENEFITS OF USING DENTAL BRIDGES
Dental bridges are created to very closely resemble the appearance of your natural teeth so that you can still enjoy flashing natural looking smiles even after suffering from tooth loss. No one will need to know that you have lost your natural teeth, with the help of dental bridges.
Dental bridges replace both the form and function of natural teeth that have gone missing, so you can smile, eat, and speak normally after having lost some teeth.
Dental bridges are made to last for more than 10 years, with proper oral hygiene habits.
Crown and bridges come in different materials, such as porcelain, porcelain over metal, and gold.
Depending on desired appearance, we cater for the best result for enhancement of your teeth.
Dental treatments carry risks. Before proceeding, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
