Crowns & Bridges

What Are Crowns & Bridges Made Of?

Crowns are made of extremely durable materials but are still subject to decay as well as wear and tear. Good oral hygiene habits will keep the crown healthy and extend its lifespan.

The type and shade of crown recommended depends on the tooth involved and your own personal preference.

When Will You Need A Crown?

  • Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

Benefits
of Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are used to protect weakened teeth, to replace missing tooth structure as part of a dental bridge or dental implant, to improve the tooth shape and colour as well as close gaps between teeth. It will help to improve your dental health and appearance.

 

Treatment Process

A thorough examination and diagnosis will be done by our dentist to determine if a crown is needed. The dentist first examines the location, size of the defect, the way you bite and vitality of the affected tooth. If crowning is required, treatment consist of shade selection followed by careful removal of decayed and weakened areas of the tooth.

Our dentist will then administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. The tooth will be filed down and an impression will be taken so that a new crown can be fabricated to the exact specifications. A temporary crown is made and fitted over the prepared tooth in between visits.

On the fitting appointment, the temporary crown is removed and the permanent crown is cemented. Our dentist will check to ensure the crown can sit well, have good margins and is in contact with adjacent and opposing teeth.

FAQs on Crowns & Bridges

How long will it take?

The procedure can be completed within 2 visits; the first for tooth preparation (about 1 hour) and the second for crown fitting (about 15-20 minutes)

Is it painful?

Tooth preparation is usually done under local anaesthetic hence the procedure is painless. However, the treatment can be a little tiring for the patient, due to prolonged mouth opening especially for the back teth.

How long can dental bridges last?

The life expectancy of a dental bridge is about 10 years with good oral hygiene habits.

Are there any risks?

Crowned teeth needs to be maintained with a combination of good personal hygiene and professional care. Otherwise, it may lead to premature failure due to tooth decay or gum disease. Another common problem is porcelain fracture due to heavy biting or grinding habits.

When will I be able to resume daily activities?

You can resume daily activities within 2 hours. Normal eating can be resumed almost immediately.

What is the difference between crowns and veneers?

Crowns are indicated when there is a need to strengthen teeth that are mechanically weakened. If a tooth has part of its structure damaged by decay or fracture, crowns are the best treatment as they can restore teeth to their normal shape and size. If a tooth is cracked, the crown holds the tooth together. Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that are bonded onto the tooth exterior. Both crowns and veneers may be used for modifying colors or position of teeth. The gums around the teeth must be good health before crowns and veneer treatments. Crowns or veneers cannot treat gum problems. Consult a dentist to assess whether crowns or veneers are suitable for you and whether you need to address any existing gum problems.
