Crowns 75080 & Bridges


If you are in need of either cosmetic or hygienic improvements to your oral health, crowns, and bridges are two popular options with many advantages. The most common reason a crown or a bridge might be necessary is if you are missing one or more teeth - but they can also be used simply to help a weak tooth along. Whatever the situation calls for, we are happy to help - but it helps to know a little more about both of these dental procedures first.

Similar to dentures, crowns 75080 and bridges are permanent fixed structures which only your dentist can remove. A crown sits over a broken or damaged tooth, and in so doing helps to return the tooth back to its prior healthy state. It can even help to repair the shape of the tooth in time. A major concern for many patients also is appearance, and this is something that a crown handles easily and effectively. With a crown properly installed, it will not be clear to anybody that it is not just a normal tooth. Crowns 75080 can be made either of porcelain or ceramic if you are especially concerned about its appearance.

Crowns are a useful solution for a number of occasions, including:

  • Covering a filling.
  • Protecting against decay.
  • Improving the smile.
  • Healing a fracture or crack.

Crowns are not always the best solution, however, and it is wise to know your options as fully as possible before coming in to visit us. Another common solution to similar dental concerns is the bridge. A bridge is almost always used to cover the gap where you have missing teeth. In essence, a bridge consists of one or more crowns which are placed over the real remaining teeth, and a centre row of false teeth for the sake of appearances. The crowns held over the real teeth help to retain the line of teeth so that your smile remains as you would like it, and you do not get a misaligned mouth.

The false teeth can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of those. A bridge is supported by the natural teeth you have remaining, meaning that ongoing care is more important than ever. Some benefits of the bridge include:

  • Improve your smile’s appearance.
  • Improve your speaking and chewing abilities.
  • Maintain the shape of your face.
  • Keep teeth in good alignment.

As you can see, both crowns and bridges are useful dental procedures for when you want to keep your smile looking its best, as well as to ensure the ongoing health of your remaining teeth and gums. If you feel that you might need either a crown or a bridge, then it is best to get in touch with us as soon as possible. We will be able to assist you as to what procedure exactly you do need - and we pride ourselves on being friendly and professional the whole way. Get in touch today for more information.

★★★★★ What a great dentist office and staff they have at Dr Thompsons. I have avoided going to the dentist for a very long time which is a bad thing. After my 1st visit with Dr Thompson and his staff, I finally understood that it doesn't have to be a bad or scary thing to go to the dentist. Well, my years of neglecting my teeth meant that I needed major work done. Luckily, they offer a financing program that is allowing me to pay off the work that I had done with interest free monthly payments. If you've been looking for a dentist that will eliminate your fears, do great work and has a kind and friendly staff, make an appointment at Dr Fred Thompsons office. You can thank me later.
