Crown & Bridge Work
A single damaged tooth affected by tooth decay can have a negative impact on the entirety of a smile. Even if just one tooth is rotten and the other teeth are healthy, the entire smile is affected and becomes unattractive as a whole. A dental crown provides solutions for the following problems that affect a single tooth:
A tooth that has been damaged or cracked by tooth decay – the damaged part of the tooth will be covered by the dental crown restoring both the use and the aesthetics of this affected tooth.
A tooth that has a very big filling can lose its strength and proper function. A dental crown is used in this case to cover the whole tooth, bringing back its strength so that it can function properly.
A worn tooth is exposed to more damage when not treated properly and takes on an abnormal size and appearance. A crown can be used to cover this worn tooth to bring back its healthy appearance and normal use.
Crowns are also used to improve the aesthetics of teeth that are badly or irregularly-shaped, or those that are severely discoloured.
A missing tooth can effectively be replaced with a dental implant, which is then attached to a dental crown as the tooth is restored.
A bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis, used to replace a missing tooth or teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Filling in a gap where teeth are missing instantly recover a fantastic smile that had perviously looked unhealthy.
