Cosmetic Dental Crowns & Bridges Caringbah
Crowns and bridges are used to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance of your teeth.
If teeth are severely damaged due to decay, sometimes you may need to perform a root canal procedure to save the natural tooth structure. After the procedure, a crown is attached over the treated tooth to protect the tooth.
Dental bridges are used to cover the gaps caused by missing teeth. A dental bridge is fixed exactly like a bridge over the two teeth on either side of the gap. It can replace one or more missing teeth.
At The Caringbah Dentists we custom design crowns and bridges that look exactly like your natural teeth and restore functionality.
Crowns are synthetic caps that are placed on top of a tooth in order to restore its functionality and appearance, after restorative procedures such as root canal. Crown are typically used to repair and restore teeth that have decayed to a significant extent, and are just short of being extracted.
Crowns are generally made of porcelain and mimic the natural appearance of your teeth. Custom-designed dental crowns look so much like your natural teeth that people will not even be able to tell that you have had any work done on your teeth.
Porcelain is the material of choice for dental crowns, especially for the front teeth. Metal crowns, and metal and porcelain crowns are also available. Depending on your budget and aesthetic requirements, you can choose the type of crowns that are ideal for you.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. A bridge is anchored in place by attaching it to the teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges look very natural, so no one will be able to tell just by visual inspection that you are missing your natural teeth. With proper care, a dental bridge can last you for more than 15 years.
Porcelain, porcelain and metal, and all metal are the choice of materials available for dental bridges. Discuss with our dentist to decide which type of dental bridge would be most appropriate for your needs.
