These are basically caps made to fit over your teeth to improve their strength, colour and shape. Though they can be made of gold, most are now made of all porcelain or porcelain on a hidden metal covering. A crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed.
A crown is made to look like your tooth. Many people call it a cap.
Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or damaged a great deal by decay. As a result, a filling can’t replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough.
A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth. It also can be used to hold a bridge in place. Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover misshaped or badly discolored teeth.
At Killarney Dental we focus on restorative dentistry with knowledge and experience in occlusion ensuring the crown is the exact shape and color required to mimic or improve nature.
Bridges are simply crowns on one or either side of a gap, joined to cover the missing teeth. They are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. We can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Implants are an exciting, more recent development to replace missing teeth. Tooth extraction is quite common due to poor dental health, gum disease and accidents. Leaving the missing tooth space empty may not sound too serious, but the consequences of not filling in the space from the missing tooth can include; The teeth adjacent to your missing tooth can change position to fill the gap. The loss of your missing tooth’s root can cause your jawbone to shrink, making your face appear prematurely older or a missing tooth in the front of your mouth can affect your smile and your self-confidence.
In many situations, a dental implant is the most pleasingly esthetic solution for replacing the missing tooth. An all-ceramic dental crown or dental bridge, secured to a dental implant, provides a complete and beautiful solution for improving your smile. A dental implant takes the place of the missing tooth’s root and helps prevent the above consequence.
