If you damage a tooth, develop a dental infection or are involved in an accident, restorative dental treatment will be required. The aim of restorative treatment is to build up and repair damaged teeth, replace missing teeth and restore your smile to its former glory. We offer a range of restorative techniques, including crowns and dental bridges.
Dental crowns are also known as caps. They are a type of restoration commonly called for when a tooth is severely infected or damaged. The role of a crown is to lend support to the tooth and protect it from further injury or infection. Crowns can be made from a range of materials and we often use ceramics to ensure a natural finish. With a crown, your tooth will be more resistant to damage in the future and the process will reduce the risk of infection spreading further into the tooth. Crown treatment usually involves two sessions around two weeks apart. If cared for well, your crown will last up to 10 years.
Dental bridges are a type of restoration used to replace missing teeth. Bridges may be recommended if a tooth has been lost as a result of a fall, car accident or sports injury or after an extraction. There are various types of bridge, but the most common is a traditional fixed bridge. These are made from a bar of crowns and are used to fill the gap left behind by a lost tooth. Like crowns, bridges can be made from different materials, but we usually find ceramics to be the best option, as they produce the most natural looking results. Bridges are custom made for each individual client and the process involves two visits. The first session is used to create the impression for the bridge and the second appointment is used to place the bridge. Bridges don’t last as long as implants, but they will last up to 15 years provided that they are well looked after.
