Crowns and Bridges
Protecting your natural tooth with a crown can save you from extraction…
Designed to cover a single tooth in its entirety, a dental crown adds protection and strengths a tooth. The 3 main reasons for using a crown are:
- Where a tooth is so badly damaged by dental decay, or has been heavily restored with filling material that a cast or milled material is needed to restore it
- Where a tooth has had a root canal therapy treatment
- Where a tooth is at risk of fracturing during normal chewing forces.
Sometimes teeth are crowned for cosmetic reasons as well as to protect teeth from breaking inpatients who have a habit of clenching or grinding their teeth,
At Smile Dynamics in Wahroonga we recommend Porcelain and Zirconia because of their superior strength, proven longevity and is aesthetically similar to a natural tooth in colour and texture.
Fixed bridges are one of the options that exists for replacing one or more missing teeth. They are a great option often when implants cannot be used.
They are an extremely popular choice at Smile Dynamics and with so many years of experience we are confident in delivering a beautiful strong bridge that can transform your smile and return your mouth to optimum health.
