Crowns and Bridges Hoppers Crossing
Dental crowns and bridges are devices that are capped over a partial tooth or implant and are cemented in place by your Hoppers Crossing dentist.
Crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that fit over the top of a damaged tooth. With a crown, we can:
- Restore a large filling when there isn’t sufficient remaining tooth
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
- Cap a tooth that had root canal therapy
Modern dentistry materials have given us the ability to create beautiful, strong crowns for any teeth. In most cases, the process to design and install one only takes two visits spaced about a week apart.
Instead of repairing and protecting a tooth that is already there, a bridge is used to help restore missing teeth. For this, two crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, and these support prosthetic teeth to close the gap. Bridges can be fixed or removable, and they can even be supported by dental implants to provide better results.
Our team only manufactures quality restorations, ensuring they are beautiful, natural-looking, and long-lasting. If you’re tired of dealing with dental problems, give us a call today, and you’ll have your original smile back in no time!
Dental Crowns & Bridges Procedure
Your first visit
Your Hoppers Crossing dentist needs to shape the teeth to provide a sturdy anchor and precise fit for the final restoration. After preparing the tooth, impressions are taken, and a replica of your mouth is created to make the restoration.
You and your dentist will discuss the colour, shape, and size of the crown or bridge. A temporary restoration is worn to protect the prepared teeth and maintain the space left by the tooth until the new restoration is manufactured.
If an implant-supported restoration is the best option, your dentist evaluates the ‘patient’s health and suitability for the implant placement.
On your next visit
Once the crown or bridge is fabricated, your dentist will remove your temporary restoration, and try on the crown or bridge to verify the fit and your approval. Once the restoration is adjusted and approved, your dentist will use an adhesive bonding agent to permanently secure the final restoration.
How to take care of your restorations
While restorations are made to last, they sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important thing you can do to keep your restorations is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its sturdiness if the teeth or bone holding it in place are infected.
Keep your mouth healthy by brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. Also, see your Hoppers Crossing dentist regularly for check-ups and cleans.
To prevent any damage to your new crown or bridge, avoid biting and chewing hard foods, ice, or other hard objects.
