Crowns & Bridges in Beckenham, Kent
Teeth are susceptible to decay if not looked after and can fracture through trauma or natural wear and tear. Dental crowns are usually then recommended by dentists as they are the most suitable option to protect the tooth from further damage.
A crown is designed specifically to fit onto the weakened tooth. Once bonded with a strong adhesive, the dental crown is cleaned and polished to feel, look and function like a new tooth.
The initial treatment procedure entails the preparation of the affected tooth. An impression is then made, which is sent to a dental laboratory, where skilled technicians handcraft your crown to the required shape and shade.
Dental bridges are used to fill a gap where a tooth has been lost. When the bridge is placed onto the adjacent teeth, it fills the gap making it virtually unnoticeable.
