At smiles Dentistry, we custom mould crowns and bridges to restore the function and appearance of your teeth and strengthen its structure. We match the tooth coloured material to the shade of your natural teeth colour and ensure it’s well-fitting, well-matching, comfortable and durable.
Crowns are caps placed over a tooth and bonded permanently to the damaged tooth by cement or a dental adhesive. Crowns are needed for the tooth that:
- is extensively damaged or fractured.
- has large cavity or undergone extensive root canal treatment.
- has worn out filling.
- correct some minor problems in healthy natural teeth such as irregular shape, discolouration or spacing.
Bridges, on the other hand, are an appropriate choice for patients with single or multiple tooth loss. this tailored restoration procedure literally means to “bridge” the gap resulting from tooth loss. Bridges are made by reshaping adjacent anchor teeth to support the new added tooth in between.
Both crown and bridges can last a life time if proper care is maintained. Daily brushing. flossing, avoiding chewing on hard substances, and routine check-ups will prevent future problems.
