Bridges provide a permanent solution for the replacement of missing teeth in addition to stability and support for teeth surrounding the gap. When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth can move and drift into the empty space, which can cause problems with your jaw joint and bite.
They are much less expensive than the Dental Implants, so they are accessible to the majority of the patients with dental problems. The dental bridges are basically fused in between two porcelain crowns, and they help you obtain a beautiful, straight and healthy smile.
Your teeth will look natural, and they will behave just like your biologic teeth, so there are no restrictions in chewing or talking properly. These dental bridges will basically help fill in the gap between your teeth, and they are made up of an artificial tooth, and two special caps (the crowns).
For more information on Bridges please see our Bridges Leaflet.
If having a bridge is something you are interested in please do not hesitate to book in for a consultation [email protected]. We can discuss if having a bridge is appropriate for you.
Crowns are often referred to as “caps” since they cover and protect the entire outer surface of the prepared tooth structure. Crowns are needed when the tooth structure is weak or teeth have been fractured. They provide support and stability for your teeth. They are often used to replace large amalgam fillings, fractured teeth or teeth that have undergone root canal treatment. We use the highest quality dental material to ensure that your crowns are perfect in every way and more importantly indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
Crowns are also used to support a large filling when there isn’t enough of the tooth remaining, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, restore fractured teeth, or cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.
For more information on Crowns please see our Crowns Leaflet.
