Dental Crowns & Bridges

Broken your tooth?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth. Dental crowns are made from a ceramic material which helps to create a natural look to match the rest of your teeth. The material used for dental crowns is also very strong so it can function effectively for many years.

Why do I need a dental crown?

Teeth can sometimes fracture or become chipped through trauma, or become severely damaged by tooth decay. A dental crown can restore a tooth’s shape and function without having to undergo a tooth extraction.

Can’t chew properly?

A dental bridge can replace a missing tooth by 'bridging the gap' between the adjacent teeth which uses them as a support. Dental bridges are made of the same material as dental crowns and once in place, it will enable you to enjoy eating and chewing as normal. Dental bridges are a cheaper alternative to dental implants for replacing a missing tooth.

What is the treatment procedure?

Before a dental crown can be made, the affected tooth will require preparation. Your dentist first reduces the tooth in size and then an impression will be made in order to create the perfect dental crown. For a great aesthetic look, the dental crown will be made using a very hard ceramic substance. This porcelain material will match the natural shade of your other teeth as closely as possible. Finally, the dental crown is then bonded into place with a special adhesive. This whole process takes approximately two to three visits at Lavant Dental.

The process is similar to a dental bridge. The adjacent teeth on each side of the gap are prepared before the bridge is made and affixed into place. Your dentist may bond a temporary solution between your treatment appointments.
