We completely understand how missing teeth can affect self-esteem which is why dental bridges are a great solution to ‘fill the gap’. Bridges are ideal for people only have one or two teeth missing and do not want a denture. They can be made by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a false tooth in the middle.
Bridges can also be constructed to fill gaps without crowning the adjacent teeth. These bridges are less damaging as they are chemically bonded onto sound teeth. Your dentist will discuss your suitability for such bridges at your consultation and work with you to provide the perfect solution.
A crown is a restoration that fits over the remaining part of you tooth making it resilient and giving it the look of a real tooth. Crowns can be used to restore teeth that have been broken or that have been weakened by decay. A crown may also be the ideal solution if you have a discoloured filling and you would like to improve the appearance of the tooth; or if you have had a root filling, you may need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth.
We have a number of different crown options available from an all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns to metal and porcelain fused to metal crowns. Your dentist will he discuss which option would be best suited to your needs at your private consultation and will depend on what is best for your teeth and your budget.
With everyone’s case being unique to the patient, it’s often difficult to provide an accurate cost of a treatment plan without a prior consultation. During this, your dentist will explore all of the options available to you, including finance options to spread the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly instalments.
