Crowns and Bridges

Keeping your teeth healthy for life starts with your home routines. Brushing and flossing go a long way towards ensuring that your smile stays bright and vital. Your checkups with Campsie Family Dental are also critical to your oral health. In many cases, however, damage to your teeth can still occur.

If your teeth have had severe decay, required a root canal or are broken down, a dental crown may be the perfect way to restore your tooth’s function. In some situations, your teeth may have been lost. If so, a dental bridge is a simple, cost-effective option to address your needs.

When a Crown Is Suitable

Once the structure of your tooth has been reduced, you face having a weak tooth. A dental crown can restore the tooth, protecting it from breakage and ensuring that it’s strong again. The tooth is reduced into a smaller form. Then, a cap that looks like a hollow tooth is fitted onto it. You won’t have to worry about your dental crown being noticeable. It’s created to colour-match the rest of your teeth. Its shape will look perfectly natural so that nobody knows you have a crown. With the proper maintenance, your crown will last for years.

When a Bridge Is the Best Fit

A dental bridge is a T-shaped dental restoration. When it’s fitted to your mouth, the ends of the bridge are attached to the teeth around the gap. The middle part of the “T” is suspended into the gap, filling it so that you can chew and speak as normal.

It’s appropriate for those who aren’t candidates for or don’t wish to have dental implants. Getting a dental bridge is a quick process, taking just about two weeks to complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a dental bridge?

A missing tooth creates a gap in the alignment of teeth. Once the space is no longer filled with a tooth, the teeth are likely to shift and move out of place. A bridge fills that gap and helps to preserve the structure of your smile.

How long will my bridge last for?

Dental bridges typically last 10-15 years, depending on your level of care and oral hygiene.

How long will my crown last?

Again, the longevity of your dental crown will depend on how well you take care of it. Maintain a scrupulous oral hygiene routine that includes regular brushing and flossing.

Are there other alternatives to a dental crown?

Yes and no. You could get a larger filling to address the area of concern. However, you should know that with a large filling there’s a risk of the tooth fracturing. If that occurs, you may need additional treatment. So, in most cases, we will only perform a procedure if it is in the best interest of our patients. We always seek to keep patients comfortable while providing the highest level of care.
