Crowns and Bridges in Ryde – The Whys and Wherefores

We use crowns and bridges in Ryde on a regular basis to repair and enhance a patient’s smile. Crowns are designed to fit over a damaged or weak tooth to give it added protection and strength but we also use them as part of a dental bridge or to top dental implants. To help you understand the difference between crowns and bridges in Ryde, we’ve put together a short overview below.

Dental Crowns in Ryde

Dental crowns completely cover a tooth from the gum line upwards and are often used in cases where a tooth does not have enough structure to support a filling. Not only do dental crowns add strength and improve functionality, but because they’re made from porcelain they look so natural that no-one will ever know the difference. We can also use a dental crown to change the size and shape of a natural tooth. Dental crowns in Ryde are available in a variety of guises including PFM’s or porcelain fused with metal and super strong porcelain crowns crafted from zirconia.

How are dental crowns fitted – what’s the procedure?

Dental crowns typically require 2 dental visits – the first to prepare the tooth being crowned and the second to fit the dental crown. During the first visit, our Ryde dentist will shape your tooth in order to fit the crown. Impressions and X-rays are then taken and sent to the lab where your custom crown will be fabricated. Don’t worry we won’t leave you toothless, instead, you’ll be fitted with a temporary crown until your custom crown is back from the lab. Once we have your new crown, you’ll be called back for a second visit during which the dentist will fit your permanent crown.

Dental Bridges in Ryde – One tooth or more!

If you’re missing one or more consecutive teeth and, for whatever reason, you don’t want dental implants, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge. As the name suggests, a lightweight metal framework spans the gap left by the missing teeth and is attached to either end to natural healthy teeth. The ‘bridge’ itself contains the necessary number of crowns to fill the gap.
