Why would I need a dental crown?

dental crownsSometimes a tooth can be damaged to the extent that its strength is compromised, such as:

  • when there is a large filling in the tooth it can cause deflection and stress on the remaining tooth structure as the filling expands and contracts due to biting forces.
  • if you have had a root canal treatment it may lead to drying of the tooth, causing it to become more brittle, prone to fracture and discolouration.
  • when a tooth is fractured or cracked you may need a crown to hold it together and prevent further tooth loss.

A crown may also be your best option if are unable to achieve the look you desire with other methods.

Dental bridges

A dental bridge is a way of restoring your smile when a tooth is missing.

We often recommend a bridge for patients who have lost a tooth, leaving a space with teeth on either side.

Our dentists can reduce this gap by placing dental crowns on the teeth on either side and connecting a false tooth to the crowns.

Benefits of a dental bridge

A dental bridge can:

  • close the gap created by a missing tooth.
  • improve your biting function so you can enjoy the food you love.
  • prevent neighbouring teeth from moving.
  • produce a natural-looking result.
  • give you the confidence that comes with a great-looking smile.
