Crowns and Bridges

The team at Lillybrook Dental can help with dental crowns and bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are restorative dental treatments which are suitable for returning teeth to their original structure and function. Both crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices.

Dental crowns

Cemented or bonded to the top of existing teeth or implants like a “cap”, crowns are suitable for teeth which have been damaged, broken or cracked. Crowns help to reinforce the structure of a tooth and protect it from further damage. This is particularly relevant for teeth which already have fillings, cracks, or have undergone root canal treatment. When used for this purpose, crowns act like a seal on the tooth, limiting the chance of bacteria which could cause further infection.
Preparing dental crowns is both science and art. The Lillybrook Dental team of dentists is experienced at preparation of dental crowns. We work closely with a quality dental laboratory in the design and construction of crowns for our patients. Selecting only the highest quality materials, including porcelain (ceramic), zirconia, and gold, you can be confident your dental crown will restore the function in your mouth.

Bridges

Living with missing teeth can be a source of frustration, particularly with everyday activities like eating and speaking. We are what we eat, which means if you’re unable to chew food well, you cannot digest or absorb all the nutrients from the food. A dental bridge can help solve these challenges.

Similar to a dental crown, a dental bridge replaces missing teeth. This is done by attaching the bridge to the real teeth located on either side of the gap. Made from similar materials as those used for crowns, a dental bridge is an option if you have two healthy teeth on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth. In some cases the dental bridge is fixed with a dental implant.

Both dental crowns and bridges, in conjunction with dental implants, help to restore function and confidence to your teeth and smile, as well as an enjoyment of life that comes through healthy eating habits. Particularly in the case of missing teeth, they can also help prevent surrounding teeth leaning into the gap which has been created. With good durability if well cared for, crowns and bridges are restorative dental treatments can help you enjoy life again.

Any invasive or surgical procedure has risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Individual results can vary.
