Protect Damaged Teeth with Dental Crowns and Bridges in Perth
For damaged, missing or discoloured teeth, Beyond Smiles Dental offers expert dental crown and bridge services. Unable to be removed daily, dental crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices cemented onto existing teeth or implants.
Dental crowns cover or cap damaged teeth, enhancing appearance, shape and alignment. Dental bridges – porcelain teeth matched to the colour of existing teeth – fuse with crowns or between natural teeth to fill in gaps left by missing or lost teeth. Often required in order to avoid ongoing complications and infections, dental crowns and bridges can save you time, money and pain down the track.
At Beyond Smiles Dental, our experienced team specialises in advising on dental crowns and bridges according to your circumstances. With dental clinics in Bertram, Stirling, Kardinya, Yanchep and Claremont, we’re able to recommend tailored solutions to help you achieve the appearance and functionality you require.
When Would I Need a Dental Bridge or Crown?
Dental bridges or implants may be recommended for patients with missing or lost teeth, working to close the gap and minimise the chance of infections and complications. If two or more teeth directly adjacent to the missing tooth are discoloured or at risk of fracture, dentists may recommend a dental bridge.
For patients with multiple fillings, dental crowns can provide an added layer of strength and durability. Crowns can also be used to cover damaged or discoloured teeth, creating a streamlined and healthy smile.
Dental crowns are often recommended following a root canal, where teeth are often left weakened and susceptible to infection. Crowns can also be used to cover and protect dental implants.
What Are They Made From?
When it comes to creating your dental bridges or crowns, your dentist will work with you to decide on the best material. Depending on the location of your bridge or crown, your dentist may choose to use ceramic, porcelain, resin or gold.
Dental crowns are created by re-shaping your natural tooth or implant and are fitted over the top while dental bridges are created according to the distance between your teeth or crowns.
The Beyond Smiles Dental team takes great care in creating high quality dental crowns and bridges customised to your requirements. We use premium materials to ensure ongoing longevity, durability, functionality and strength.
How Long Do They Last?
Good oral hygiene is paramount for protecting the longevity of your crowns and bridges. At Beyond Smiles Dental, we recommend taking care of your overall oral health by brushing and flossing on a daily basis, avoiding smoking and attending regular check ups with your dentist.
As a general rule, most crowns last between five to fifteen years. Your dentist will be able to provide more specific information depending on your type of crown, your lifestyle and your oral hygiene habits.
