Ambience Dental is Providing Dental Crowns and Bridges in Wollongong and Fairy Meadow
Ambience Dental is providing cosmetic dentistry services such as dental crowns and bridges in Wollongong and Fairy Meadow. The clinic is educating potential patients on the benefits of dental crowns and bridges through informative articles on its website.
A dental crown is a cap that gets laid over a damaged tooth. Crowns are meant to top off existing teeth to improve their appearance and function. A dental bridge is meant to replace multiple missing or broken teeth. It is called so because it “bridges” the gap between two crowns. The two solutions are often used in conjunction to repair damaged, discolored, or missing teeth.
If someone is in the market for restorative dentistry, they may have also come across dental veneers. Dental veneers are a kind of cosmetic procedure where a thin layer of resin or porcelain is attached to the tooth. It is easy to get confused about the kind of procedure one needs due to a lack of information about the different options.
Dental veneers differ from dental crowns mainly in the way they are laid over the teeth. Dental veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth that constitute a person’s smile whereas a crown covers the entire tooth. For installing a veneer, the dental technician has to remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of the tooth. To install a crown, a dental crowns dentist needs to file or ground down a significant portion of the tooth.
Dental crowns can be made from porcelain or ceramic and be built to perfectly match the color and texture of the natural teeth. Metal crowns are used and then topped off with porcelain when replacing back teeth where the strength of the crown is important. Crowns can last anywhere from five to 15 years and are subject to one’s dedication to dental hygiene.
Bridges are prosthetic appliances that replace missing teeth. They are made from porcelain to match the natural color of the teeth and are fused with metal to give them the strength to bear regular wear and tear. There are three types of bridges. A fixed bridge is made of two crowns and one or several false teeth known as pontics. A bonded bridge uses wings on each of the pontic instead of crowns bonded to teeth on either side of the gap. A cantilever bridge is used in cases where there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing teeth.
Though dental crowns are a popular way to restore missing or damaged teeth, they have their drawbacks. The biggest reason for crown failure is age. Crowns that are constructed or installed poorly will also break apart with time. Poor dental hygiene can lead to tooth and gum decay which can cause the crowns to weaken. Another prominent reason for a crown to possibly fail is abusing them by chewing down on hard foods or chewing on sticky or chewy foods that could loosen the crown.
When crowns and bridges are properly installed by experienced dental technicians and are taken care of by maintaining good dental hygiene, they can be effective at fixing dental problems such as damaged, fractured, or misshapen teeth, weakened teeth due to decay, severely discolored teeth, weakened teeth due to root canals, and unstable or uncomfortable dentures.
They are also great at restoring a person’s smile as they solve the problem of missing or damaged teeth without anyone being able to tell the difference as they look and feel just like one’s natural teeth. They also protect the remaining natural healthy teeth by stopping them from rotating and preventing the person from ending up with a bad bite. They also protect the gums that would have remained exposed if the crowns or bridges weren’t placed. The materials of the crowns and bridges are resistant to staining and are durable and long-lasting.
