At Apex Dental Care, we believe that your oral health is not only linked to overall well-being but confidence as well. That’s why we offer dental crowns and bridges in London as part of our general dentistry services. The treatment is a way to bring back your beautiful, confident smile by covering up damaged teeth and preventing further damage. Therefore, it’s a restorative and preventative procedure. The London dental crowns and bridges treatment requires at least two appointments. Our local dental experts have years of experience in preparing, fitting, and placing crowns and bridges. Therefore, they can perform the procedure with the utmost skill and provide the desired results. Usually, patients get a dental check-up before being referred for a crown or bridge treatment.
Before being referred for a dental crown or bridge, you’ll need to get a check-up by one of our London dental specialists. Based on the condition of your teeth, they may perform an X-ray to determine whether you need a crown or any other treatment.
If you’re facing the following issues, you may require dental crowns and bridges:
In the first appointment, your dentist will prepare your teeth by making space to fit the crown or bridge. It will require reducing the size of your tooth, for which you will be given local anaesthesia, and taking an impression of the teeth. We send the mould to our lab so that dental technicians can prepare the crown or bridge. It takes about two weeks until the crown or bridge is ready. During this time, your local dentist will fit a temporary crown. In the second appointment, you will try the crown or bridge to see if it fits, allows a comfortable bite, and looks natural. Once you’re satisfied, it is cemented.
When your tooth is damaged, cracked, or misshapen, dental crowns or bridges in London are a suitable treatment. If you’ve had a root canal treatment, a dental crown can cover the exposed area of the tooth. This is a way to replace old or broken fillings and improve the appearance of your teeth. Simply put, your expert dentist will replace your tooth without removing it.
Getting a crown or bridge can help with the following:
And the best part is that you walk out with a great smile! If you’re dealing with issues like chipped or missing teeth, don’t wait for things to get worse.
