Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are used to replace missing teeth. These restorative prosthetics can improve a smile and help with bite function, so you can chew without worry and smile with confidence. Thanks to improved dental technology, our team of dental professionals here at My Dentist Alderley Brisbane have many tools and treatments to save your teeth, and when the damage is significant, crowns and bridges can restore your tooth for aesthetic value and function.

Dental Crowns

 
A dental crown is like a cap that fits over your natural tooth to protect the root or save the integrity of the tooth. It can also be placed on top of a dental implant, which acts as the natural tooth root while the crown is your replacement tooth. No matter how it’s used, we can make the tooth look and feel like the rest of your teeth, so only you know it’s a crown. Dental crowns can help the following:

N

Protect a damaged or cracked tooth

N

Act as a cap on tooth damaged by an old filling

N

Caps a tooth damaged by excessive decay

N

Cover and cap a dental implant

N

Fix worn, misshapen or discoloured teeth

N

Protect a root canal treatment

N

Improve speech by filling in missing teeth

N

Protect tongue and cheek by replacing a missing tooth

N

Restore chewing function

Dental Bridges

 
Dental bridges are restorations used to replace multiple missing teeth. For this dental solution, crowns are used at both ends, with a middle part that bridges the end crowns, resulting in filling in the gap. They are made to look like your natural teeth in shape and colour, and your mouth will function normally while you get the confident smile you deserve.

Because bridges are not removable, they are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. They function like real teeth and are easy to care for with daily oral hygiene. Patients love them because they don’t shift and move like temporary bridges or dentures might.

The Benefits of Crowns and Bridges

 
Both dental crowns and bridges are solutions to restore the integrity of your bite while building your confidence. They provide strength and structure to your teeth and help you avoid problems from missing teeth such as:

^

Gum irritation

^

Increased risk for tooth decay

^

Increased risk of damage to surrounding teeth

^

Jawbone deterioration

^

Speech problems

^

Sunken cheeks due to missing tooth and jawbone shrinkage

Besides replacing missing teeth, the benefits of crowns and bridges include:

\

Protect damaged tooth, so you don’t lose it

\

Low-risk dental restoration option

\

Protect root canal treatment

\

Durable, lasting up to 10 years and longer

Crowns and bridges often improve self-confidence in patients with one or more missing teeth. And if you have multiple missing teeth in a row, or if you wear dentures, the All-of-4 dental implant solution can replace them. This will prevent further jawbone deterioration, which can add to a more youthful appearance, and protect your gums.

Caring for Your New Restorations

 
Once you have your new dental restorations in place, they should last as long as possible. Some restorations can last 10 – 20 years or a lifetime. Consistent oral hygiene along with preventive measures like regular dental checkups will help ensure your crown or bridge lasts a long time.

Right after your treatment, your mouth will need time to heal, so the gum and surrounding area may be sensitive for a few days. Your dentist will provide customised instructions that will help guide you in after-care. If you are prescribed any medications, be sure to take them as directed, and take extra care when eating, brushing and flossing.

Crowns and bridges of today are made of high-quality materials that are meant to function like natural teeth. Crowns may be made of porcelain, while bridges might include porcelain along with other pieces that work together. While these may be resistant to breaking and tooth decay, they are not completely unbreakable and still susceptible to staining, so treating them like your own teeth will help them last.

Under your new restoration is your natural gum, and possibly tooth and the tooth root, depending on the situation. Your mouth will still require regular care so that problems don’t arise underneath your dental crown. The following are some other guidelines that will help you care for your new teeth:

Z

Brush every day, at least twice a day

Z

Floss according to your dentist’s instructions

Z

Avoid smoking cigarettes

Z

Limit alcohol

Z

Incorporate a healthy diet with limited sugar

Z

Do not chew on ice or other hard objects

Z

Have regular dental checkups to ensure no problems arise like hidden infections or tartar buildup

Z

Get your teeth professionally cleaned according to your dentist’s recommendations

Call your dentist right away if you notice changes such as your bite feels off, or discomfort increases instead of decreases. Sometimes accidents happen, so if you have an emergency, let us know so we can accommodate.
