Crowns and Bridges in Charlestown, NSW
At Charlestown Dental Care, the goal of our Charlestown dentists and their entire team is to help our patients enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for the rest of their lives. Sometimes this means that a damaged or decayed tooth needs to be repaired.
Leaving a damaged tooth untreated might become a missing tooth in the future, and it puts your healthy teeth at risk.
A tooth crown or dental bridge in Charlestown, NSW can restore your smile—and protect your oral health. These solutions are attractive and durable, restoring both the appearance of your smile as well as the function of your teeth.
Dental Crowns in Charlestown Restore Teeth
A dental crown protects a compromised tooth by covering the tooth structure like a “cap” that is customised to blend in with your natural teeth. We often recommend crowns in situations where a dental filling cannot be used to repair decay because it is so extensive. Crowns are also used to protect teeth that might be subject to fracture after a root canal. Crowns are also one of the components of a dental implant and a dental bridge.
Dental crowns function just like natural teeth, so chewing and cleaning teeth feels natural and convenient.
Have You Considered a Dental Bridge in Charlestown, NSW?
When one or more teeth is missing and not replaced, this can affect your smile as well as your self-confidence. It might make speaking and chewing a challenge. You are also putting yourself at risk for more tooth loss. Leaving a gap between your teeth will cause your other teeth to drift over to fill in that space. Over time, this can contribute to bite-related issues, undue wear on teeth, gum disease and TMJ pain.
A dental bridge is a common restoration that fills in the space left in your mouth due to tooth loss. Typically, we situate restoring teeth between dental crowns and use the crowns to cap teeth on either side of your smile gap. This allows the restoring teeth to complete your smile.
We customise the dental bridge to match your natural teeth so it will blend in with your smile. The bridge will also keep your teeth from shifting, ensuring healthy teeth can stay that way and protecting you against further tooth loss.
Dental Implants for a More Permanent Solution
Whether you’re missing one tooth or many, dental implants are an excellent solution. They are the tooth replacement option that most closely mimics the natural teeth because they replace both the root of the tooth as well as the crown.
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, strategically placed dental implants in Charlestown can support a denture. This provides the most stable denture experience because the implants prevent slipping while you are speaking or eating. Dental implants also protect jawbone health, so denture patients do not experience the “facial collapse” that commonly occurs as the jawbone shrinks.
