At Smiles Are Us Park Holme, we believe everyone deserves a beautiful smile they want to show off each day, which is why we offer additional cosmetic and restorative dental procedures such as crowns and bridges.  Not only can these boost the aesthetics of your smile, but they also work to maintain your oral health for greater wellbeing.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown can be described as a ‘cap’ made from porcelain material to perfectly blend-in with its surrounding teeth. They’re known as a full coverage restoration that is used to treat teeth which have lost their structural integrity due to large fillings, root canal therapy, or severe decay.

Not only do crowns look great, but they also provide other benefits such as strengthening the tooth. When proper oral hygiene standards are maintained, crowns are expected to last for several years. Crowns are also used in partnership with dental implants to act as a prosthesis, or artificial tooth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

While a dental bridge also works in association with crowns, it’s function is quite different. Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or more than one missing teeth in a row. They do this by using two or more crowns bonded to an artificial tooth in the middle to fill these gaps. When placed on top of a dental implant, bridges can also replace as many as 4 or 5 teeth at once.

How to Care for Your Crown or Bridge

By practising good oral health and hygiene methods, your crown or bridge can last a long time, helping you to maintain your beautiful smile. This is why it’s vital to brush your teeth twice per day, as well as to floss just as regularly. Additionally, we recommend you make your bi-yearly dental check up and cleans at Smiles Are Us Park Holme a priority, to always ensure your oral health is on track.
