Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
One of the main causes for tooth loss is tooth decay, which is caused by poor oral hygiene. There are other issues of course, which also weaken our teeth and gums, which causes teeth to fall out. However, there are many treatments now available to revert the damage so you can restore functionality and beauty to your smile!
Crowns and Bridges are a form of teeth replacement that will give you amazing results and a beautiful smile, overall, the procedure is not very complicated, and in a couple of visits, your smile will be ready.
This treatment uses your existing teeth for treatment, so there are no further extractions, which means your teeth will be shaven down and prepped for the crowns. It is not a very invasive procedure, and they will last a very long time, providing that you take the appropriate care.
Crowns act as “caps” that sit on your prepped teeth that have been shaven down so the crown can fit on top of them. The crown will hold the tooth that will fit where the missing tooth is by filling the gap and using both teeth at either side as anchors. Once the crown is cemented onto your teeth, you will have very natural looking prosthetic teeth that will blend with the rest. All our crowns are made out of porcelain to give them a more natural look and completely restore functionality to your mouth.
The bridge portion of the treatment is the actual prosthetic tooth that is fitted into the missing tooth’s gap, which is held Both our bridges and crowns are custom made from a mold taken from your mouth on previous appointments and will fit perfectly once the procedure has been completed.
If left untreated, adjacent teeth will start shifting since there is space to move and can affect your bite and functionality of your mouth. This procedure is quite simple and only requires a few visits to your dentist to see the amazing results. It is not very invasive and can really help prevent other issues from surfacing in the future.
