Looking for a painless solution for missing or damaged teeth in Croydon? At Smile Crew, we offer high-quality dental crowns and bridges that transform your smile while optimising functionality.
A dental crown is one of the popular cosmetic dental procedures that we offer at Smile Crew. Also referred to as a “cap”, a dental crown fits on the gum line of the decayed or damaged tooth and restores its size, shape, and functionality. Crowns provide support to weak teeth by preventing them from breaking and hold up cracked teeth together.
While dental crowns are made using different materials, at Smile Crew we use high-quality porcelain crowns. Full porcelain crowns are hand-made by our local lab technicians to ensure they seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth.
The dental crown procedure involves two to three steps.
At your first visit, our specialists will assess your dental and overall health condition while examining the damaged tooth in detail. We may order diagnostics to understand the underlying issues behind the damage. During this appointment, the dentist will also remove any decay and clean your teeth to prepare them for the dental crown placement procedure. Your dentist at Smile Crew will then take precise dental impressions to create a custom crown.
Upon your second visit, the dentist will meticulously clean the tooth and fit the new custom crown by bonding it to the old tooth. You will be given a local anaesthetic to support you during the procedure.
A dental bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth. Our experienced dentist will attach the dental bridge made of porcelain or metal to the teeth on the adjacent sides of your missing teeth. Dental crowns will also be placed on the adjacent teeth to secure the bridge in place.
To prepare your teeth for the dental bridge, the dentist first evaluates your dental health and the extent of damage/decay. She then files down the adjacent healthy teeth and takes an impression to create the dental bridge. The permanent bridge, once ready, is attached to the neighbouring teeth using dental cement.
As the trusted dental practice in Croydon and surrounding areas, we at Smile Crew offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics procedures. Consulting our top-rated dentist, Dr Manu Kaur, is the best way to know which type of treatment is suitable for you. She will suggest crowns, bridges, implants, or other treatment based on your cosmetic goals, your dental, and overall health condition.
The number of times you will need to visit our clinic will also be clearly explained by your dentist. This depends on the extent of teeth decay or damage and the procedure chosen. We also offer an extensive range of resources that educate and inform our patients while guiding them on making an informed decision. Dr Kaur will give you a set of detailed instructions on how to care for your crown, bridges, implant, or veneer to achieve the best outcome.
