There are many reasons why a patient may choose to have a dental crown and tooth bridge: to improve aesthetics, to protect a weakened tooth before it’s too late, or to replace a missing tooth.
Here at Marsfield Dental Care, we provide everyone with an unbiased treatment choice and we welcome patients to ask questions to clarify their queries. As your general dentists, we’ll recommend and perform crown and bridgework when we can see what an impact it will have on the quality of your life.
We’ll carefully explain the process of dental crown and bridgework to you so you understand what is involved. To simplify things, a crown is essentially like a “cap” that fits over a prepared tooth. The tooth needs to be prepared in such a way that the “cap” can fit over it.
As a result, crowns can be highly aesthetic and can successfully and reliably improve function. A dental bridge is a collection or a span of crowns that extends over 2 or more teeth. This means that teeth that have been previously missing even after many years may still be able to be replaced.
Recovery time depends on the complexity of the treatment, whether you are a smoker, and other factors – but you’ll be able to get back onto your usual diet within 7 to 10 days. The images shown are examples of before and after treatment that have been performed by us.
Veneers are a conservative way of changing the shape and colour of your teeth, as well as one of the ways to mask irreversible staining of the front teeth. Even better, you can have veneers in as few as two visits to our dental clinic!
The first visit involves preparing the front teeth, by removing a thin layer of enamel to allow space for the veneers to be seated. We then take a mould of the teeth, so that while you’re wearing temporary veneers, we can create your custom veneers. This means that, by your second visit, your veneers are ready to be fit to the exact contours of your mouth. The images shown are examples of before and after treatment that have been performed by us.
Come and arrange a consultation with one of our dentists at Marsfield Dental Care. Please note that risks and consequences may apply to any treatment, and this applies to dental crown and bridgework as well. These may include, but are not limited to, trauma to the dental nerve and irreversible loss of natural tooth structure. Always seek a second opinion when considering complex treatment. A referral to a specialist prosthodontist may be required in certain situations.
