Crowns And Bridges
Well, worry no more! Deer Park Dental Surgery offers a variety of dental treatments for patients residing in Deer Park and surrounding areas.
Crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices that are fixed on existing teeth or implants. This restorative procedure uses prosthetics to bring back your smile to its natural condition.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Crowns, usually made of porcelain or ceramic material, are used to replace the tooth when its structure is cracked or fractured. It protects the tooth or implant from further damage and infection.
Crowns replace a gap when there isn’t enough tooth remaining. They also protect a weak tooth from fracturing and restore a fractured tooth. Crowns cover a dental implant, a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth, or a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Bridges are used to fill the gap between teeth. They are usually made of porcelain fused to metal to achieve maximal durability and natural look. Bridges are cemented between two crowns or implants, making them look like natural teeth and helping maintain the shape of your face.
Functions Of Crowns And Bridges
Crowns and bridges play essential roles not just in bringing convenience and confidence, but also in giving health to their wearers. They help prevent gaps that result in the remaining teeth shifting and becoming a bad bite.
Bad bites can lead to gum disease and TMJ, and we don’t want that to happen. Crowns and bridges are made durable, and with proper care they last for a long time. They restore the strength and stability of the teeth.
Process Of Getting Dental Crowns And Bridges
- The tooth must be reduced in size so that the crown or bridge will fit properly.
- Your dentist will take an impression to provide a mould for the crown or bridge. Your crown or bridge is made from the impression, in the material your dentist specifies. While the permanent crown or bridge is being formed, a temporary crown or bridge will be placed to cover the prepared tooth/teeth.
- When the permanent crown or bridge is ready for filling, the temporary fitting is removed, and the new crown or bridge is cemented over your prepared tooth or teeth.
Caring For Crowns And Bridges
Crowns and bridges require the same thorough care as your natural teeth. It is important to brush and floss your teeth regularly to prevent dental plaque buildup.
It is also recommended to secure a regular cleaning schedule at Deer Park Denta Surgery for your crowns. Avoid using your teeth to bite through hard objects. If you grind your teeth, wear a nightguard to protect them during your sleep.
