Crowns and Bridges at Nova Smiles Dental

Broken Tooth? See Our Wallsend Dentist

Crowns and Bridges WallsendHas it been a while since you’ve seen a dentist? Do you have a tooth that’s visibly fractured or already needs to be replaced? Our crown and bridge treatments at Nova Smiles Dental can help to rehabilitate your smile back to its proper function and appearance, so that you can eat all of your favourite foods and avoid embarrassing situations or speech challenges.

Each of our custom dental crowns and bridges are designed from quality porcelain materials that blend in with the neighbouring teeth. They’re ideal for use anywhere throughout the mouth, even in areas that are especially noticeable when you smile.

Why Do I Need a Crown?

Sometimes called “caps”, dental crowns cover your entire tooth up to the gumlines. They’re used to protect teeth that have been badly damaged and cannot be filled but are stable enough to not require an extraction.

You may need a crown if you:

What are Dental Bridges?

Illustration of dental bridgeBridges are a restorative option that’s used when a tooth is missing. The bridge anchors on top of adjacent teeth on either side of the one that has been extracted, suspending a crown over the space left behind.

To have a bridge placed, the supporting teeth will essentially be crowned and must be healthy enough to withstand the restoration. Bridges can also be placed on pairs of dental implants, to support a few teeth in a row in lieu of wearing a partial denture.

What to Expect

Bridge and crown treatments generally require two appointments to complete. The first visit involves numbing the supporting tooth and shaping it so that a restoration can fit completely over it without compromising the biting relationship of surrounding teeth and then an impression is taken. Approximately two weeks later, the permanent crown or bridge will be ready to seat.
