Restoring and rebuilding a stronger, healthier smile

Modern dental crowns or bridges are far removed from restorations of old.

They are more lifelike and longer-lasting than ever before and provide a harmonious blend of both beauty and functionality.

What are dental crowns?

Crowns are dental restorations designed to cover the visible part of a tooth – the part above the gum line that you see when a person smiles.

They are fitted to protect a tooth that has been damaged or weakened through decay, malfunction or in the case of a root canal – after endodontic treatment. They are also used to top a dental implant.

Dental crowns are made from several materials including porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-ceramic, ceramic, all-porcelain, pressed ceramic and, in some cases, gold alloy. Our Chesham patients can benefit from quality, lifelike restorations that blend effortlessly into their existing smile.

What about dental bridges?

As the name suggests, dental bridges are designed to ‘bridge’ the gap for a missing tooth or teeth, filling in any unsightly spaces.

Comprising of a pontic middle tooth (the tooth that bridges the gap) and abutment teeth (dental crowns that fit over the teeth immediately adjacent to the gap) a dental bridge creates a lifelike and durable restoration.

Dental bridges can also be held in place by dental implants and are typically made from dental porcelain with a ceramic base to provide the best blend of durability and aesthetics.

In addition to restoring an incomplete smile, dental bridges provide a host of other benefits that include:

  • Improving how you speak and chew
  • Equal distribution of bite force so as not to place excess pressure on neighbouring teeth
  • Prevention of drifting by nearby teeth; and
  • The enhancement of facial contours

Commonly asked questions about dental crowns and bridges

What dental problems can crowns or bridges help with?

Dental crowns and bridges can be used to fix a number of dental problems including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Teeth with advanced decay
  • Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy
  • Missing teeth; and
  • Teeth with badly worn enamel

Should I get an implant-retained dental bridge?

Naturally, there are added costs involved but it does mean that, unlike conventional bridges, adjacent supporting teeth won’t need to be reshaped to support the abutment restorations of a dental bridge. This is because a dental implant is a standalone restoration in its own right – a restoration that is strong enough to support itself and the bridging tooth.

Reshaping supporting teeth can weaken them and may cause them to become prone to dental problems later on in life. So what you may save initially when opting for conventional bridges might cost you more in the long run.

How long should my dental crowns or bridges last?

The average crown or bridge should last somewhere between 5 and 10 years. However, several factors may affect how long your restoration will last. These include:

  • The location of the restoration – certain teeth like molars, for example, will typically be more load-bearing and therefore be exposed to greater wear and tear.
  • The material your crown is made from
  • Whether you suffer from bruxism (habitual teeth grinding)
  • Your dietary intake
  • Your oral cleaning habits

What should I do if I have a problem with my crown or bridge?

Firstly, check to see if it remains intact. You want to avoid swallowing any pieces. Next, call your emergency dentist. If they are unable to see you right away, then chemists sell dental cement. Apply this sparingly to your restoration and place it over your tooth or teeth. This should be a temporary fix until you can get to see your dentist.
