Dental crowns and bridges are restorations that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants. They are custom-made prosthetic oral devices that are carefully crafted to replace missing teeth. Each provides a very natural looking tooth or teeth, restoring both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges are permanent oral fixtures and cannot be removed.
A crown is a small cap specifically designed to cover a damaged tooth or to replace an entire tooth by affixing to a dental implant. Crowns are used to strengthen and restore teeth while also improving colour, shape and function. Crowns can be easily colour matched to your existing teeth creating a natural appearing restoration.
Dental bridges are commonly used to replace missing teeth, whether it is one, two or more. A bridge is attached to surrounding teeth with a crown(s) that slide into place of the missing tooth/teeth. At Sailors Bay Dentistry we offer a range of different crown and bridge options to meet your varying requirements, from porcelain to gold crowns and bridges. Call our friendly team today if you would like further information or to schedule an appointment.
Crowns - Before and After Gallery
Your crown or bridge’s longevity will depend on the material used (porcelain infused to metal, porcelain, CEREC or Zirconium) but most dental crowns and bridges will last many years without having to be replaced. If you properly take care of your implants and practice good oral hygiene habits, they should last between 5 to 20 years. A dental bridge or crown may lose its strength if the teeth and bones surrounding or supporting it become damaged due to oral decay or disease. Thus practicing good oral hygiene keeps the teeth surrounding your crown and bridge healthy thereby preventing the weakening of the crowns and bridge supports.
The best way to care for your dental crown or bridge is to treat them as if they were your natural teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits, which include brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily is vital to maintaining your implant’s integrity. It is also important to maintain regular oral health check-ups with your dentists.
