Crown bridge work is widely available from dentists around the UK, and with prices from your local dental lab being affordable for both NHS and private patients; you can correct your smile and start to live life to the max once again. Crown and bridge work is just one way of correcting your smile when you have broken or missing teeth, and the preferred method nowadays that is fast replacing the wearing of dentures or partials.
The crowning of teeth can take away not just the unsightliness of chipped and broken teeth, but it can also help with the pain that is caused when nerves are exposed. In the past, the solution to a rotten tooth that could not be filled would simply be to extract it. Thankfully, times have changed, and root canal treatments can now take away the pain, leaving you with a tooth that can be crowned and left to look like new.
Crown bridge work procedures involve several visits to your local dentist; the first of these visits involves a general check of the overall health and hygiene of your teeth and gums. Depending on the overall health of your mouth and teeth, the type of treatment you need will be discussed with your dentist. In order to make an overall assessment of your oral health, x-rays and impressions will be taken. In the case that you have been wearing a partial denture that you wish to replace with a fixed bridge, it will be necessary to check that your gums have not receded or been damaged by the wearing of dentures.
A dental bridge can be fitted to replace a partial denture where there are two, three, or possibly more teeth missing. A bridge is firmly fixed to your adjoining teeth, and this means that you can say goodbye to messy dentures once and for all. Crown bridge procedures will require multiple visits to your dentist, and in the case that extractions are necessary where teeth cannot be saved and will be replaced with a bridge, there will be around a six week wait until your first fitting for your bridge can take place.
Crown bridge work can be combined with veneers to ensure your teeth look simply stunning, and bridge work is a cheaper and less painful alternative to implants that are known for being expensive. By filling in the gaps in your teeth and crowning over unsightly chipped and broken teeth, your mouth will look a million dollars, and you will be able to smile widely once again.
Consult your local dentist about crown and bridge work available for your teeth, and to see just how much it will cost to fix your smile once and for all. When you choose to look after your crowned teeth and bridges in the same way you should your original teeth, a crown and bridge treatment can last for many years to come. Unlike dentures that can get lost or broken, bridges are firmly fixed in the mouth and when treated with the care they deserve they will feel and act like natural teeth that will last you for many years to come.
