Dental crowns are restorations placed over teeth when a dental treatment is insufficient to restore their form and function. Bridges, on the other hand, serve to replace a missing tooth.
Crowns and bridges can be made of tooth-coloured materials, metal, or a combination of the two to offer aesthetically pleasing results.
At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, we design natural-looking porcelain crowns and bridges, which can be ideal solutions for replacing missing teeth.
What Are Dental Crowns Used for?
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Protect a tooth from fracturing
- Cover a tooth after a root canal procedure
- Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
- Replace a tooth filling when there aren’t enough healthy teeth remaining
- Restore a tooth that has damaged or fractured
Reasons for Bridges
- Fill the spaces left by missing teeth
- Support and maintain proper facial shape
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a fixed dental appliance
Crown and Bridge Procedure
The first step is to reduce the teeth in which the restorations will be placed. We then use a Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system to easily and accurately fabricate crowns and bridges in just one appointment.
If a tooth-coloured material is used, your dentist at Comfort Dental Centre Buderim will match it with your natural teeth. Once the dental restorations are fabricated, the dentist will cement them into place for a permanent restoration. You will leave our office with a new healthy smile and a younger appearance.
