Crowns are essential when a tooth lacks enough structure for a filling, providing support and protection for teeth that are fractured or damaged. They can also be integral to bridges or implants, offering support for dentures.

Crowns come in various types, including porcelain fused to metal crowns, which combine a porcelain outer layer with a metal substructure, and all-porcelain crowns, which contain no metal at all. Additionally, gold alloy crowns are available.

The process for receiving a crown typically includes:

  • Administering local anesthesia.
  • Shaping the tooth to fit the crown or inserting a post for support, including removing decay or old fillings. A more substantial tooth nub means a better fit.
  • Sometimes, a tooth needs to be built up with filling material to prepare it for a crown.
  • Crowns need to be a certain thickness—about 2mm—for adequate strength.
  • Taking an impression for a precise crown fit.
  • Applying a temporary crown while the final crown is crafted in a lab.
  • A final visit to fit and securely bond the crown.

Cosmetic Dental Bridges in Rugby

Dental bridges effectively close the gap caused by one or more missing teeth. A bridge comprises two crowns on either side (abutment teeth) and one or more false teeth (pontics) fixed between them. The bridge relies on the patient’s natural teeth, which are prepared to support the abutment teeth. Bridges offer a reliable alternative to dental implants or dentures, crafted from materials like gold, alloys, or porcelain.

If implants present a more suitable long-term solution, our team at Rugby Dental Care will guide you towards the best option.

Bridges are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, restoring functionality and aesthetics to your smile.
