Revive your teeth and their aesthetic appearance and functionality with our customised dental bridges and crowns.
Dental bridges and crowns treat similar dental issues, including teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, or missing. The main differences are the purpose of each treatment and how they function. A bridge fills the space between missing teeth, while a crown covers and protects an existing tooth.
Both dental bridges and crowns can help restore the look of your smile, enhance pronunciation, and improve the ability to chew food. These restorative treatments also prevent teeth from moving into empty spaces and increase good dental hygiene.
At The Parade Dental Practice, we’ll discuss your options and fit any dental appliance with gentle care, precision, comfort, and a natural appearance.
Crowns, or caps, are protective restorations designed to fit securely over an existing tooth. This treatment makes the tooth stronger and recreates its natural shape and appearance. Crowns are ideal for broken, chipped, discoloured, or worn down teeth (from previous fillings or decay damage). Patients who want to transform how their teeth look may also opt for crowns.
Our team has the expertise and knowledge to build custom dental crowns that look beautiful and feel natural. To achieve the best results, we use materials that are strong and long-lasting:
Whether you need a dental crown for functional or aesthetic reasons, we’re committed to providing outstanding results so you can feel proud and confident to show your teeth.
Bridges cover spaces between one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge features a false tooth typically fused to adjacent teeth with crowns. Unlike dentures, dental bridges are not removable and provide a seamless replacement for missing teeth. Our bridges are designed to look and feel like your original teeth and are made from durable materials.
The advantages of getting a dental bridge include the following:
We believe our patients deserve the best care possible. Our long-established team of dentists and staff restore and brighten smiles with heart and dedication. If you’re looking for a dentist in Ewell, or want more information about dental bridges and crowns, reach out today.
After losing an adult tooth, a replacement helps maintain the alignment of the remaining teeth. Missing teeth can change how we eat or affect the way we speak. Both dental bridges and dental implants offer natural-looking results, but the main difference is the placement in the mouth.
Dental bridges protect the alignment of your teeth by holding the surrounding teeth in place. In some cases, bridges are supported by implants for added stability. Dental implants are surgically mounted into the jaw, serving as artificial tooth roots. Implants come with an attachment that holds a crown, bridge, or denture in place.
During your consultation, we can discuss whether or not dental bridges or an implant is best for your needs.
It’s important to remember that even though dental crowns and bridges are permanent fixtures, they will eventually need replacing. These restorations can last up to a decade or longer with proper care.
Treat your crown or bridge like your natural teeth to prolong their longevity, including brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily. A floss threader is best for cleaning under and around artificial teeth for bridges. Our dentists or hygienists will gladly show you how to do this.
Along with good at-home care, booking regular dental visits and professional cleanings is recommended to check that your bridge or crown is in optimal condition.
