Tooth restoration is a major part of dentistry and at Wimbledon Dental Care we aim to restore as many of your natural teeth as possible, rather than simply removing and replacing them. Crowns and bridges in Wimbledon offer the best solutions for all types of restoration and we are able to offer you a renewed and restored smile without invasive surgery that requires months of healing. These treatments not only take care of the aesthetics of your smile, but the function of the teeth as well, making them strong and able to perform as they should when it comes to eating and having the added benefit of restoring your confidence.
When are they needed?
Crowns can be used for many reasons, in some cases if a tooth has been weakened from decay and doesn’t need to be removed completely after a root canal is done, a crown may be placed over the top of the tooth in order to strengthen it, thus allowing the root to remain in place. Teeth that have been broken or cracked can be held securely together with a crown and teeth that have been severely worn down – by grinding perhaps – are able to be restored, with crowns, to their proper size and shape once more.
Teeth that have needed large fillings can sometimes lose their size due to having been ground down for the filling to be placed. These teeth can be capped off with a crown to restore their original shape and if there is a missing tooth, crowns can be used on either side of a full false tooth in order to create a bridge.
When are they needed?
In the event that a tooth has to be removed, or is knocked out and cannot be placed back in, bridges can be used to replace that single missing tooth or, indeed, a row of missing teeth. As the name suggests, a bridge of teeth is created to fill a gap. These false teeth sit on top of the gum and not inside it, which is why special care needs to be taken when cleaning the teeth in order to avoid plaque build-up and bad breath. Crowns and bridges in Wimbledon are used together in order to restore the look of a smile and function of a dental arch, which is chiefly chewing food.
When getting crowns and bridges in Wimbledon you do not need to worry about your teeth looking fake, only the best dental porcelain is used in the creation of these custom teeth that are made to perfectly match the colour of your other teeth. This is as well as being customised to be the right size and fit so that they are comfortable as well as convincing. Porcelain is used to match the transparency of natural teeth and it is also very strong and will not stain, therefore it is able to restore the look of your smile in order to help you feel more confident about your appearance and raise your self-esteem.
