Single Visit Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns and Bridges Perth: Affordable, Convenient, Beautiful results in a Single Visit!
A crown, also known as a tooth cap, is a protective sheet of material (usually ceramic) that covers the entire tooth above the gum, to protect it. Imagine the tooth to be a head, and the crown a helmet to protect it from the constant pressure of biting.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Cracks in teeth – Teeth are brittle, and sometimes the strong forces of biting can cause cracks in teeth. These cracks are weak spots that can potentially extend deeper and deeper into a tooth eventually causing nerve pain when biting. By placing a crown on the tooth, biting forces are redirected away from the crack site, which reduces the risk of further cracking.
- Broken teeth – teeth that have already broken need to be assessed by dentists on whether they can be restored or not. If they can be fixed, a crown is often the best treatment option in the long term, as missing a part of it will likely weaken the tooth.
- Large holes or fillings – when teeth have holes in them, their structure becomes compromised, or weakened. Depending on the depth and size of the hole, a crown may be an ideal restoration to re-enforce what is left of the tooth. Similarly, a large may not last very long because fillings rely on holding on to the remaining tooth. The larger the filling the less remaining tooth there is. A crown will cover the filling and tooth completely, protecting both in the long term and reducing the chance of the filling or tooth breaking.
- Missing teeth and dental bridges – Missing teeth can be replaced by a dental bridge, which involves placing crowns on the teeth adjacent to the space. These crowns will then hold a tooth that is suspended in the space, creating a dental bridge. This is a common method of replacing missing teeth in the long term, to improve aesthetics, as well as function.
- Cosmetic correction – Crowns can be placed instead of veneers where there is not enough tooth left. They are the most cosmetic solution available for very broken front teeth. Crowns can be described as double veneers. A veneer covers only the front surface of the tooth, where as a crown (like a helmet) covers the entire tooth, which adds to its strength and retentiveness.
