Bridged and Capped Teeth in Ryde
Improve the look and function of your teeth with dental crowns and bridges. People in Ryde who have lost a tooth or have several missing teeth are usually recommended these options. See how crowns and bridges at Putney Dental Care can make a lasting difference. Our crown and bridge specialists have what it takes to make you look your best.
A dental crown, commonly called a ‘cap’, is a type of dental restoration material that is cemented over a tooth. As its name implies, a crown acts as a cap or covering for your tooth. It is used to fix a tooth that has been cracked, broken, heavily filled and discoloured. It also works for a tooth that has lost its fillings. A tooth weakened from having a large cavity or trauma may also benefit from the protection of a crown.
Modern crowns for teeth are made from ceramic materials such as E-Max. These can be made to look highly aesthetic but still maintains properties of high strength. Therefore, they can also be used to improve the shape and contour of pre-existing teeth.
At Putney Dental Care, we have many different dental crown types available to suit every patient’s needs in Ryde. Rely on our dentists to pick the ideal option for you. Depending on the location of the crown, they may advise any of the following: resin, metal or ceramic crown.
The dentists behind Putney Dental Care are well-informed enough to know and understand that not every tooth will benefit from a crown. However, teeth that show signs of deterioration may crack. Even worse, they may need extraction if these cracks aren’t detected early enough. During a comprehensive examination, our digital intraoral camera (Sirocam AF+) can focus with high resolution in inspecting the surface details of our patients’ teeth. Patients can also review these images and discuss any concerns they may have with our Ryde team.
A dental bridge is a kind of fixed dental prosthesis that offers the solution to anyone with one or more missing teeth. The teeth in between the space where a tooth once was serve as anchors for the bridge. These anchor teeth are then molded to accommodate the crowns. Afterwards, a bridge is bonded securely over these teeth. A pontic tooth, the replacement, is attached to the crowns that cover the anchor teeth.
Trust that we will match the pontic tooth and crowns to the colour and the shape of your existing teeth. Much like a crown, a dental bridge is also cemented in and can be made to look and feel quite natural.
The team at Putney Dental Care is experienced in tooth replacement procedures. For our patients in Ryde, you will be well informed about which option is both the simplest and most cost-effective for you. We strive to meet our patients’ needs and requirements in any way we can.
