We repair your teeth and fill the gaps naturally to allow you to speak and chew again without any issues.
All surgical procedures or invasive procedures come with risks. Therefore, you need to consult a certified health practitioner before taking any of these procedures.
A dental crown refers to a temporary custom-made material put over your damaged tooth to protect it. Besides restoring the tooth’s function, a dental crown also ensures a tooth has support and strength. For dental bridges, they complete your smile’s appearance by replacing the missing teeth.
Crowns and bridges are the products of porcelain, known for its durability and natural appearance. The dentists at Northern Beaches Dental Group will always advise on the right treatment plan to follow.
Crowns and bridges are the perfect options if you’re after a healthy and perfect smile. Currently, crowns and bridges are more attractive and longer-lasting because of the updated techniques and materials.
Dental crowns support several applications, and they correct a vast range of issues like:
For dental bridges, they replace the missing teeth. A gap can significantly impact your smile. Dental bridges improve your smile appearance by replacing the missing teeth and preventing the neighboring teeth from moving out of their locations and shifting into the gap created by the missing tooth. This issue can result in continued dental conditions.
Our dentists can place a dental bridge or dental crown in two visits or three visits. After examining your oral health, we will prepare the natural tooth for restoration and then take your teeth’s impressions. The impression represents your natural teeth’s shape, size, and position so that the restoration fits appropriately.
We will forward your teeth’s impression to a specific dental laboratory that takes around two weeks to create the permanent restoration. We will put a temporary crown/bridge on your missing teeth as we wait for the dental lab to prepare the permanent restoration.
After finishing the restoration, we will set up a specific date to revisit our office. We’ll evaluate the finished tooth restoration to ensure it fits correctly and make necessary adjustments during that time. Finally, we will cement the restoration into place permanently.
Before leaving, we will guide you in the right way of taking care of your restoration. Yes, the repair becomes fully functional, but you should give it special care to avoid damages. The new restoration is likely to last for several years if you arrange regular dental cleanings and maintain correct oral hygiene.
We can assist if you have a missing tooth or damaged tooth. Arrange a dental exam by calling our office today!
