A crown surrounds and covers a damaged tooth with a cap made of either porcelain or gold. It’s meant to rebuild and strengthen the tooth while also improving the appearance of your teeth.
We will colour match your crown to the existing colour of your teeth for a natural and flattering look. Sometimes, people choose a lighter colour to achieve a different look for their smile.
Every person has different needs so your dentist will discuss what options you have and what will suit you best. Usually, crowns are made of porcelain or gold, depending on whether they’re placed in the mouth.
After the consultation a temporary crown is placed on your tooth until the final crown is ready. Once the crown is fitted on your tooth further adjustments may be needed to make sure it fits properly.
Our aim at My Dentist is to make you as comfortable as possible, no matter what the procedure. Contact us today!
What do bridges do for your smile? If you have missing teeth, bridges are important for functionality and restoring self-confidence in your smile. Not only that, but they can help you do things like speaking and chewing easier.
Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the teeth to rotate or shift into empty spaces, resulting in an uncomfortable bite. At times, it can even lead to gum diseases or joint disorders.
Bridges are cemented to either natural teeth or implants and use that anchor to span the empty space. You have several choices in materials, and this largely depends on where the bridge will sit in your mouth. Your dentist will help you decide which option is best for you.
Once impressions have been made of your teeth, they’ll be sent to a technician to create the bridge. While your bridge is being created a temporary bridge will be provided until the permanent one is ready to be cemented into your mouth.
