CROWNS & BRIDGES
Leading Dental Practice in North Brisbane QLD
Looking at more permanent and aesthetic dental options? Consider porcelain crowns and bridges.
What is a crown?
What is a bridge?
Dental bridges are designed to fill the gaps left behind by missing teeth. The two adjacent teeth will be shaped to allow a crown to fit and a scan will be taken of your prepared teeth. A bridge will be manufactured which consists of two crowns holding a tooth to replace the gap. Once the bridge is cemented into position, it looks and works just like natural teeth.
When is a crown or bridge required?
Crowns and bridges are used to repair a number of different dental problems.
A crown can be used when:
- A tooth is fractured or damaged
- Too much decay has weakened a tooth
- A tooth is severely discoloured
- A tooth is misshapen
- A dental bridge needs an anchor.
A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is also a possible solution when dentures are unstable, uncomfortable or aesthetically displeasing.
To find out if you’re a suitable candidate for a crown or bridge, it’s essential that you are assessed by a dentist.
