Dental Bridges and Dental Crowns to Restore the Beauty of Your Smile!

Restorative dentistry seeks to improve the function and appearance of damaged teeth as well as to replace missing teeth. There are many different dental treatments which may be classified as restorative. Most common among these are crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures.

What is a Dental Crown?

If a tooth has been broken or weakened by a lot of decay or a large filling, a dental crown can be fitted. Your dentist will match the artificial crown up to the shape and colour of your other teeth so that it looks natural and beautiful. The crown will last for many years, depending on the health of the tooth underneath.

What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge consists of artificial teeth which are permanently fixed to healthy supporting teeth on either side of the gap. It is used to replace missing teeth, restoring appearance and function. A bridge can be made from either porcelain, metal or both. When preparing a conventional bridge, the dentist needs to prepare the teeth on either side of the gap so that they will successfully hold the bridge in place.

A dental bridge is anchored to the teeth on both sides of the gap created by the missing tooth. This gives the bridge strong support but requires that these healthy teeth be grinded down prior to placing the bridge. A permanent bridge replaces one or more missing teeth and will:

  • Restore your ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence
  • Keep teeth from drifting into the space created from a missing tooth
  • Make teeth easier to clean, thus helping to prevent gum disease
  • Help preserve normal function and normal bite for the jaw join

Talk to Dr. Weerasinghe today to find out if this option is right for you. Let’s work together on giving you the smile you deserve.

It Is Important To Replace Missing Teeth:

To improve your appearance

To prevent the neighbouring teeth from migrating into the resulting gap and altering your bite

To prevent bite problems and TMJ disorders that may result from an altered bite

What Are the Advantages of Dental Bridges?

They are natural in appearance

They generally require only two appointments for completion

They have a life period of 10-15 years, provided you maintain good dental hygiene.

They improve your appearance, bite issues and speech problems

What Are the Disadvantages of Dental Bridges?

Loss of healthy tooth enamel on either side of the gap

Teeth become mildly sensitive to extreme temperatures for a few weeks

They are highly susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay
