CROWNS AND BRIDGES TREATMENT
AT GK DENTAL HAWICK

DENTAL CROWNS AND BRIDGES ARE TWO TYPES OF COSMETIC TREATMENT WHICH ARE USED TO FILL GAPS IN TEETH OR IMPROVE TEETH IF THEY ARE DAMAGED. IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHICH ONE WILL WORK BEST IN YOUR MOUTH. YOUR DENTIST IS THE BEST PERSON TO GUIDE YOU THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS.

THEY ARE AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO FILL IN SPACES IN YOUR SMILE, BRIDGES, AND CROWNS CAN ALSO HELP KEEP YOUR SURROUNDING TEETH FROM DRIFTING.

A DENTAL CROWN COVERS THE ENTIRE VISIBLE PORTION OF THE TOOTH. SOMETIMES IF A TOOTH IS CRACKED, CHIPPED, OR HAS HAD SERIOUS DECAY, THE TOOTH WILL PROBABLY NOT SURVIVE IF LEFT AS IS. AT ROYAL DENTAL, WE PLACE A PORCELAIN CROWN OVER THE DAMAGED TOOTH. THIS RETURNS STRENGTH TO THE DAMAGED TOOTH. CROWNS CAN ALSO COVER MISSHAPEN TEETH OR FILL IN GAPS BETWEEN UNEVEN TEETH. THEY ALSO ACT AS THE ANCHORS FOR BRIDGES.

DENTAL BRIDGES WORK JUST LIKE THE BRIDGES YOU SEE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE. THEY HELP CONNECT THE SPACE BETWEEN TEETH WHERE PREVIOUS TEETH USED TO BE. BRIDGES HELP KEEP YOUR TEETH FROM SHIFTING AND CAN HAVE CROWNS ATTACHED TO THEM SO THAT YOU MAINTAIN AN ATTRACTIVE SMILE. WHEN A TOOTH IS LOST OR REMOVED, OVER TIME YOUR TEETH CAN ROTATE, CAUSING ISSUES WITH YOUR BITE. BRIDGES HELP YOU KEEP A HEALTHY BITE AND DENTAL ALIGNMENT.
