Crowns and bridges can restore both the function and beauty of damaged or missing teeth
At Burleigh Dental Studio, we provide custom-fit handcrafted crowns and bridges designed to last. Comprehensive treatment planning, sound tooth foundations, ideal preparations and bonding protocols are essential to achieving successful, long-lasting crowns and bridges.
If you are experiencing missing or damaged teeth it can be upsetting and painful. You no longer need to hide your smile or allow your oral health to deteriorate.
What indications may require a dental crown?
- Cracked or broken tooth
- Large broken-down filling
- Extensive dental decay
- Weak or discoloured tooth
- Tooth with poor size or shape
A dental crown will enhance the appearance of a damaged tooth, and more importantly restore the tooth’s natural function. Your crown will enable you to bite down, chew and speak naturally. Some say that the aesthetics of a posterior second molar crown is of little importance, we believe that every new tooth should be made to look, feel and function optimally.
What is a dental bridge?
Missing teeth can make it difficult to smile without embarrassment or chew without pain. If missing teeth are not promptly treated, they can cause your remaining teeth to shift and become crooked. Dental bridges are an excellent solution to replace missing teeth with an aesthetically attractive, durable and functional result.
With a dental bridge, your existing teeth are used as anchors. The dental bridge fills in the gap caused by missing teeth. Dental bridges can be composed of various materials, including porcelain and zirconia.
Getting used to your dental bridge takes only a few days. It’s advised to eat soft foods for the day or two after your procedure. Within a fortnight, you will return to eating normally, speaking with ease and smiling with confidence.
