Dental crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken down teeth. A crown strengthens your existing, damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. Dental crowns are also commonly known as caps (because a crown sits over your existing tooth, covering the entire outer surface).
Crowns are used when your tooth has undergone significant decay and there is not enough tooth structure remaining to support a filling or an inlay and maintain functionality. If a large portion of your tooth has fractured and it cannot be built up using traditional composite bonding techniques or if you have a large cavity and opt for the additional protection a crown offers to your tooth over a large composite filling or an inlay - crowns are used.
Crowns are also used when you have had a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, a crown will be fitted to the abutment of the titanium implant. Following root canal treatment, a crown is often needed to strengthen the tooth. For cosmetic reasons, to improve the aesthetics of your smile, you may opt for all porcelain cosmetic crowns.
Tooth loss can occur for many reasons (periodontal disease, decay or trauma). Dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for many years now with recent technology meaning Dentures can also be mounted on implants creating an affordable way to achieve the benefits of permanent implants. Alternative methods to Dentures of course include dental implants and fixed bridges - our dental team offers all these services.
The loss of your teeth can have negative effects on your self-confidence, your ability to chew food and your bite. Since your teeth provide structure and support to your cheeks, tooth loss can result in the sagging of your cheeks and make you appear older than you are. It is essential that your missing teeth are replaced as soon as possible.
Dentures are removable replacements for your teeth, designed to look and function like your own natural teeth and surrounding gum tissues. Modern-day dentures can look very realistic and natural and feel comfortable. When all your teeth are missing, a complete denture is used to replace them, whereas if only a few teeth need replacing, a partial denture or overdenture is used. Partial dentures can prevent your existing healthy teeth from shifting following tooth loss. On your first appointment, your dentist will assess your needs and thoroughly examine your mouth for suitability for dentures. Some of your existing teeth may need to be extracted first or you may need treatment to get your gums into good health before commencing any treatment. An impression (mould) of your gums will be taken and used as a model to fabricate your dentures to fit the contours of your mouth exactly. A dental technician will make your dentures to your dentist's exact specifications.
In cases where teeth need to be extracted, the structure of your gums and surrounding tissues needs to heal before your final dentures are made. In such cases, an immediate denture will be placed to enable the gums and surrounding tissue to heal properly. Immediate dentures can be easily modified during the healing process, which could take several months.
