DENTAL CROWN AND BRIDGE SERVICES
Dental crowns and bridges are better long-term remedies for teeth that are broken or missing. They are bonded to your natural teeth or implants to improve the appearance, alignment, and strength of your teeth. Lifetime Dental’s dentists can work with you to create a specific treatment plan and provide dental crown and bridge procedures to help you regain your smile and confidence.
Dental Crown Treatment
A dental crown, often known as a “cap,” is used in a variety of dental treatments, including the replacement of large fillings, the protection and restoration of a weak or damaged tooth, the covering of a dental implant, discoloured tooth, or badly shaped tooth, and the attachment of a bridge. The dental crown operation begins with the existing tooth being reshaped so that the dental crown can be placed on top of it.
Your dentist will next take a dental imprint of your teeth and send it to a dental lab where the crown will be created. Depending on your tastes and dental needs, the dental crown can be composed of gold alloys, other metals, acrylic, ceramic, or porcelain. Finally, dental cement is used to secure the crown on the pre-shaped tooth
Dental Bridge Procedure
A Dentalbridge is a device that can be used to hide and replace a missing tooth. You should anticipate your dentist to reshape the teeth on either side of the gap and take a dental impression if you need a dental bridge. The dentist will send this impression to a facility for fabrication of the bridge. When it’s finished, your dentist will bond it to the reshaped teeth on either side of the gap, completing the procedure.
Dental crowns and bridges improve the beauty and function of your teeth, and if properly cared for, they can last a very long time. Find a Lifetime Dental store near you or contact us online if you have questions or require dental crown and bridge services.
Crown And Bridge Procedure
When a tooth is broken, rotting, or damaged, it may be necessary to place a crown on it. A crown is a long-lasting cap that fits over the natural tooth. Porcelain, gold, and other metals can be used to create crowns. Crowns made of porcelain provide the most lifelike appearance. Existing teeth can be whitened, reshaped, and realigned with crowns, resulting in a more healthy and vibrant smile
DENTAL CROWN AND BRIDGE SERVICES
Crowns and bridges normally necessitate two visits to the dentist. A local anaesthetic is used to numb the surrounding teeth on the first visit. The dentist cleans any remaining plaque or decay from the surrounding teeth and reduces them to allow the crowns to be fitted. The dentist creates a mould of the teeth and sends it to a dental laboratory, which prepares the unique impression.
Because the pontic and crowns are one piece, additional attention must be paid to keeping the gum line and the area surrounding the new structure clean. Cleaning beneath the teeth and maintaining strong, healthy gums generally necessitates the use of special floss.
DIAGNOSTICS AND PREPARATION OF THE TREATMENT PLAN.
A consultation is included in the initial appointment, which includes:
Examine your teeth.
The teeth as seen through a pantomograph.
A computerised representation of the teeth.
An examination of the smile
The smile of a patient is examined as a starting point for developing a treatment plan and a cost estimate, which includes a detailed list of teeth that require repair.
