What are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Compared with removable devices such as dentures, which you may remove and clean every day, crowns and bridges are cemented upon existing teeth or perhaps implants, and may only be removed by a dentist. They are made of Porcelain or an extremely hard glass. We may recommend Emax Empress porcelain for anterior esthetics or Zirconia crowns for posterior teeth. All our crowns are produced in Melbourne leading dental laboratories and these restorations provide excellent esthetics and strength.
Benefits of BRIDGES & CROWNS for Patients near South Yarra
In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.
We may recommend a crown to:
1. Replace a substantial filling when there is not adequate tooth remaining
2. Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
3. Rebuild a fractured tooth
4. Connect a bridge
5. Cover a dental implant
6. Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
7. Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
How Long do Crowns and Bridges Survive?
Even though crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they do occasionally come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to make sure the longevity of your crown or bridge is to practice very good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by Brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily.
