Crowns & Bridges
As part of our restorative care at Aesthetic Smiles we provide patients with crowns and bridges to repair damaged teeth or for the restoration of missing teeth. Receiving treatment for broken or missing teeth is essential for the repair of dental function and will vastly improve appearance for greater self-confidence.
If missing teeth are left untreated an improper bite may result and this can affect both chewing and speaking capabilities. Gums and teeth can weaken and the jaw bone suffer shrinkage, which will then negatively impact facial volume and expression. Our aim is to give patients a natural set of functioning teeth for improved health and aesthetics.
Crowns can be attached to a bridge on one or more sides of a missing tooth or they may be permanently fixed by a dental implant. Crowns are made from materials such as porcelain, glass or zirconium and will mimic natural tooth colour and shape. We also offer E-max Crowns. Crowns are used in cases where teeth are weakened and require added strength, or they can be used for missing teeth on either the upper or lower dental arch.
Bridges consist of a precious metal base or other material which is bonded with porcelain to anchor replacement teeth. If there are few teeth in need of replacement or tooth gaps are present on one side of the mouth, bridges can be an appropriate teeth replacement option.

Why Choose Crowns Or Bridges?
Tooth gaps weaken dental structure promoting further tooth and bone loss. Gum tissue can become irritated and cause inflammation and problems such as gingivitis. Damaged teeth have been proven to increase the risk of tooth decay which often leads to gum disease. Replacement teeth such as crowns and bridges restore teeth and improve bite.
Our Aesthetic Smiles dentist evaluates each patient's need for oral health improvement and will then discuss suitable and realistic treatment options. Artificial replacement teeth are elegantly designed to appear natural and feel just like your own teeth.
