Dental Crown and Bridge

Dental crowns and bridges are a solution to damaged or missing teeth. With the help of a restorative procedure, our excellent dentists use prosthetics to return your smile naturally. Traditionally, people used alloy, gold or other forms of metal prosthetics for dental crowns. However, there are many affordable yet aesthetic options available at Ormond Dental.

We offer porcelain tooth crowns that don’t just function naturally like your original teeth but also give you a natural look. They are a perfect solution for damaged or severely decayed teeth.

When are Dental Crowns Needed?

There are three different situations when you may need dental crowns:

When decay in a tooth is limited just to the visible portion above the gum line

A tooth-coloured filling may not be sufficient to rectify the decay, but when a crown is used additionally, it will help cover the tooth entirely. A dental crown fortifies and adds to the life of the tooth.

If the decay is spread to the root

In such conditions, our caring dentists will have to perform endodontic work to remove the decay. Endodontics helps preserve the teeth of the jaw bone and surrounding teeth.

When a tooth is missing completely

An artificial root can be placed with the help of a dental implant post, and a porcelain crown can be attached to the implant to create a new tooth artificially.

How Does a Tooth Crown Function?

A dental crown is a manufactured tooth created to match your natural teeth texture, colour, and size. This cap is fixed permanently over your tooth to give it a fresh surface. Dental crowns may be placed over any tooth and are considered perfect solutions to large metal fillings that are old and a potential threat to the tooth, lest they crack. The metal fillings can be replaced with porcelain crowns, providing longevity and strength.

What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is similar to a crown. However, it receives support from the teeth located on either side. A dental bridge mostly treats multiple missing or severely damaged teeth with a single prosthetic. They are created with the same material and offer a natural look to the person undergoing this procedure.

What happens during a dental crown procedure?

After you have consulted with our caring dentists and agreed to fix your oral condition with dental crowns, two visits would be required to complete the process at Ormond Dental.

Cosmetic dentists at Ormond Dental are not just skilled at their work but caring, too. On your first visit, our dentists will seat you comfortably and numb the area to be treated. The dentist will then clean the outer surface of the tooth. They then remove the damaged, decayed tissue and debris in the tooth. The tooth is then reshaped and resized in a way that it best supports the crown.

A mould or impression of the crown is to be placed over the tooth taken, which is sent to the laboratory to custom create a porcelain crown for you. The dental crown created will have the same thickness as the layer that was removed from your tooth.

The shade of the porcelain is carefully selected to match the colour of your natural teeth.

Our dentist will then place a temporary tooth crown made of plastic to provide protection to your reshaped and resized teeth. This plastic crown is attached with the help of temporary glue. The dentist working on you will help you understand how to take care of this temporary crown.

On your second visit after you are seated comfortably, our dentists will numb the area of treatment and remove the temporary plastic crown. Before placing the crown over the tooth, our dentist thoroughly examines it to ensure it will function normally without any issues. A dental crown must not cause discomfort when your upper and lower teeth come together to chew or bite something. If required, the dentist will shape it. Once you and the dentist are content with its authenticity, they will proceed to cement it over your teeth permanently.

You will now have a new strong and natural- looking tooth. Ensure you brush and floss regularly to keep the bacteria from collecting beneath it. A porcelain crown is not just sturdy but offers an aesthetic look, too. A dental crown will usually last ten years. Some people have successfully kept it for up to thirty years just by maintaining good oral health.
