Crown Process To Replace Front Tooth
A cosmetic dental crown is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth, to restore function and appearance. Today, crowns are typically made from ceramic which is very strong and natural looking. At Oxley Park Dental Practice we use the latest ceramic crowns to give you the best aesthetic results.
The crowning process involves the shaping of the original tooth, following which an impression is taken of the tooth using an impression material. The technician will then manufacture the crown in the dental laboratory, to the desired shape and colour. The process is completed when the dentist fits the permanent crown by bonding it to the prepared tooth using special adhesive.
Crowns can be used to restore damaged and discoloured teeth
A cosmetic bridge is used as a permanent replacement for one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is essentially used to “bridge the gap” between the remaining adjacent teeth, thus replacing any missing teeth and restoring aesthetics, function and the ‘bite’. There are various different types of bridges and designs which can be made at Oxley Park Dental Practice and we will discuss this when we plan your treatment with you.
