One of the most versatile restorative treatments is a dental crown. A tooth with severe decay, has undergone root canal therapy, suffered trauma in an accident or sporting injury are all reason why you may require a dental crown.
Dental crowns from Infinity Dental Care Winston Hills are strong, long-lasting and look completely natural as their colour is matched you the enamel of the adjacent teeth. Digitally scanned and Crafted from a detailed impression mould in our on-site laboratory, a crown can successfully restore strength and function as well as aesthetically enhance your smile.
It’s essential to care for your crown as you would your natural teeth. Although made from high quality porcelain or ceramic material, the health of your surrounding teeth and gums will affect the longevity of your restoration.
With the correct care, good oral hygiene routine and attending check-up appointments every six months with the Infinity Dental Care Winston Hills team, crowns can last 10-15 years.
A dental bridge is a fixed replacement to fill a space created by one or several missing teeth, essentially, bridging the gap.
Spaces created by missing teeth can lead to teeth rotating or shifting out of alignment, resulting in a bad bite.
A dental bridge consists of two crowns, which are secured to healthy natural teeth on either side of the space and a series of artificial teeth between them, spanning and filling the space.
Like a crown, the teeth on either side of the space are carefully prepared and a detailed impression mould is made. This is the template used to create your bridge in our on-site laboratory.
A dental bridge can last for many years, but as they are supported by natural teeth, it’s important to maintain a good at-home oral hygiene routine and schedule regular check-up appointments with Infinity Dental Care Winston Hills.
