Crowns & Bridges
Crown & Bridges
However much care we take of our teeth, life takes its toll. Fillings come first in our tool kit for repair but sometimes a filling is not enough.
Damaged teeth, broken teeth and missing teeth can be repaired using ceramic crowns. If you have one or more broken teeth, damaged teeth or a gap in your teeth, you don’t have to live with it.
A ceramic crown is one of the best ways of saving and strengthening broken teeth. Crowns recreate the tooth’s original shape by fitting over the affected tooth.
The type of crown you need will depend on which tooth needs replacing; damaged teeth at the back need to be stronger, damaged teeth at the front need to match the colour and texture of your natural teeth. We can recommend exactly the right type of crown for the job.
If you have one or more missing teeth, we can use a bridge. A bridge replaces the missing teeth with artificial ones, without the need for uncomfortable dentures. The artificial teeth are anchored to the natural teeth on each side of the gap in the teeth – creating a bridge.
At TLC we will arrive at the best outcome for you by looking at your whole smile, making sure your teeth work together properly and that they look right for your skin tone and face shape.
If bridges or ceramic crowns aren’t the answer for you, there are alternatives to consider, such as dental implants or partial dentures. Call us now for an appointment and we would be happy to explain your options in further detail.
