Crowns and Bridges at Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery
Over the years, your teeth might become damaged from trauma or simply from the ageing process. If you need to restore your oral health, the team at Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery can help you. We provide a myriad of solutions that will help you smile again. Crowns and bridges are two options that can restore the stability to a compromised tooth or replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth.
Choosing a Dental Crown to Strengthen Your Smile
Tooth decay, a trauma or the gradual wearing of teeth over the years can result in compromised stability. If your tooth needs to have greater strength, a dental crown can give it just that. It’s like a cap that is custom-created to go over the existing tooth structure. It has a seamless fit so that you won’t even feel that it’s there. It can be treated just like a natural tooth, and you can eat the foods you love with ease again.
Filling in a Gap With a Bridge
A dental bridge is a suitable choice to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. If you have an open space where your natural teeth used to be, a dental bridge is cost-effective and permanently fixed in place. It involves anchoring the bridge to neighbouring teeth with a fake tooth suspended into the gap. You need to clean carefully around the bridge, but it can be treated just like the rest of your teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are usually two visits to our practice to receive crowns and bridges. At the first appointment, we’ll take impressions and other measurements that the laboratory will use to custom-create your restoration. At a follow-up, we’ll place your crown or bridge and make sure you’re satisfied before cementing it into place.
The only way to determine what is best for your situation is to have an evaluation at our clinic. Our dentists will discuss your concerns, then perform an examination. We’ll go over all the possible solutions with you so that you can decide how you would like to proceed.
