Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are fixed restorations that replace missing or damaged teeth.
Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge provides effective fixes to your dental problems.
Crowns are caps, made to look and function like your tooth and protect damaged teeth. They are usually required when a root canal treatment is performed, or the teeth are weakened by trauma.
Crowns strengthen and protect a tooth. Your Kellyville Ridge dentist reshapes the remaining tooth, and caps it with a temporary crown.
After a few weeks, you will come back to have the full crown placed permanently. With proper care, crowns can last a long time.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth when the nearby teeth are healthy enough to support the restoration. Bridges come in three types: conventional bridges, cantilever bridges, and resin-bonded bridges.
The Dental Crowns & Bridges Procedure
Your first visit
Your Kellyville Ridge dentist needs to shape the teeth to provide a sturdy anchor and precise fit for the final restoration.
After preparing the tooth, impressions are taken, and a replica of your mouth is created from which the restoration is designed.
You and your dentist will discuss the colour, shape, and size of the crown or bridge.
A temporary restoration is worn to protect the prepared teeth and maintain the space left by the tooth until the new restoration is manufactured.
If an implant-supported restoration seems the best option, your dentist evaluates your health and suitability for the implant placement.
On your next visit
Once the crown or bridge is fabricated, your dentist removes your temporary restoration, and tries on the crown or bridge to verify the fit and your approval.
Once the restoration is adjusted and approved, your dentist uses an adhesive bonding agent to secure the final restoration permanently.
How to take care of your restorations
While restorations are made to last, they sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important thing you can do to keep your restorations is to practice good oral hygiene.
A bridge can lose its sturdiness if the teeth or bone holding it in place are infected. Keep your mouth healthy by brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice a day, and flossing daily. Also, see your Kellyville Ridge dentist regularly for check-ups and cleans.
To prevent any damage to your new crown or bridge, avoid biting down and chewing hard foods, ice, or other hard objects.
