PresiDental Smiles Crowns and Bridges

When you have a tooth that’s too broken or decayed to repair with a dental filling, crowns and bridges are the next practical step. These restorations are customised to look and feel as natural as possible, enhancing both the function and appearance of your smile.

Do You Need a Dental Crown?

Crowns cover the entire tooth above the gumline, distributing biting forces evenly across the restoration. They can also be used to enhance the appearance of misshaped or worn teeth for cosmetic purposes.

Should You Get a Dental Bridge?

Bridges replace missing teeth when a dental implant is not an option. Each end of the dental bridge also acts as a crown, so it can provide added reinforcement to worn or deteriorating teeth adjacent to the missing one. Aesthetically, we match your bridge to your surrounding smile so that it blends in with your neighbouring teeth.

Current literature shows us that most crowns and bridges can last 15-20 years when maintained properly. However, we’ve frequently seen them last as long as 30-40 years in many scenarios. Daily brushing, flossing and regular checkup and cleans are crucial to the integrity of your smile investment.

Most crown and bridge treatments require two visits about two weeks apart. During your first visit, we’ll gently numb and prepare your teeth, take a set of impressions, then fit you with a temporary restoration. When you return for the permanent crown or bridge to be placed, we’ll numb your tooth again to prevent any irritation or sensitivity.
