Looking to close a gap?
Want something to help protect a filling?
Crowns cover the entire area of a tooth up to the gumlines. We use crowns for reinforcing teeth that might otherwise succumb to everyday wear. Such as after root canal therapy, when replacing a rather large filling, or if there’s severe tooth decay.
Crowns can also be set over dental implants for single tooth replacement.
Living with missing teeth can be a source of frustration, particularly with everyday activities like eating and speaking. We are what we eat, which means if you’re unable to chew food well, you cannot digest or absorb all the nutrients from the food. A dental bridge can help solve these challenges.
Similar to a dental crown, a dental bridge replaces missing teeth. This is done by attaching the bridge to the real teeth located on either side of the gap. Made from similar materials as those used for crowns, a dental bridge is an option if you have two healthy teeth on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth. In some cases the dental bridge is fixed with a dental implant.
Bridges are a proven and effective way to replace 1-2 teeth at a time, as long as you have a healthy tooth on either side of the gap. The bridge itself is made to resemble 3-4 natural teeth in a row, but either end is a crown that rests over the supporting tooth.
Like crowns, bridges can be integrated with a pair of dental implants for multi-tooth replacement.
Both dental crowns and bridges, in conjunction with dental implants, help to restore function and confidence to your teeth and smile, as well as an enjoyment of life that comes through healthy eating habits. Particularly in the case of missing teeth, they can also help prevent surrounding teeth leaning into the gap which has been created. With good durability if well cared for, crowns and bridges are restorative dental treatments can help you enjoy life again.
Sometimes problems like tooth decay or worn-down enamel are too severe to correct with a small filling. Or worse, you lose your tooth altogether. Fortunately, Lillybrook Dental offers a range of restorative dental services to help you smile with confidence again.
