No matter the dental care that you require, at Dental Practice Manor Square - Solihull, patients can be certain of our exemplary dental care. Our crowns and bridges procedures are certainly no exception to this.
What are Crowns?
A crown is the type of restoration which is used for the full coverage of a tooth (like a cap).
In order to fit a crown, which is ordinarily made from metal or porcelain with metal, the old tooth must be drilled down to form a small peg-like shape. The crown can then be fixed onto this.
Crowns are mostly used when the tooth is compromised by already having either a larger restoration, root treatment or when a large chunk of tooth surface is chipped and therefore is difficult to treat with normal restorations such as fillings.
What are Bridges?
A bridge can be used to fill the space or gap where a single tooth or multiple teeth are missing or have been removed. If the gap is not closed the neighbouring teeth may begin to slowly tilt or shift towards this space, leading to bite and jaw problems and possibly periodontal disease. A typical bridge consists of a replacement tooth attached to one or two surrounding crowns and this structure is bonded into the mouth.
During your initial visit, the surrounding teeth are cleaned to remove plaque or decay and lightly shaped so that the bridge will fit easily. A mould of the teeth is taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where a customised bridge will be prepared. In the meantime you’ll be fitted with a temporary bridge made of acrylic resin.
When your bridge has been made the temporary bridge can be removed so that the permanent one is mounted and adjusted to produce the proper bite and fit. It is then bonded into the mouth. It is important that the gum line and area surrounding the new structure is kept clean and a special floss is often necessary to clean underneath the teeth and maintain strong, healthy gums. With proper dental care, bridges can last up to 10 years.
