Options for Repairing Your Smile
At InHarmony Dental Care our dentists offer dental crowns to repair badly damaged teeth and dental bridges to fill the gaps left by missing teeth.
Dental crowns or "caps" cover a tooth that is badly damaged, helping to restore its shape and strength.
We use dental crowns to fix teeth that are too badly damaged to be repaired with a standard filling.
For example, a crown can hold a cracked tooth together and prevent the damage from worsening.
Or, if you have had a root canal and some of the tooth has been saved, a crown can make the tooth like new.
Crowns are also strong dental restorations that can be used to attach a dental bridge, and to cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.
A bridge is a semi-permanent dental appliance that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth by bridging the space between the two teeth on either end of the space.
A bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth, to help restore the appearance and function of the smile.
If left unfilled, the empty space left by missing teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift out of their proper positions, resulting in discomfort and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease, possibly leading to further tooth loss.
Fixed bridges enhance the appearance of your smile and improve your ability to chew and speak.
