Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are restorations that are used to rebuild and strength weak or broken teeth. These coverings are also known as dental caps due to the way they fit over teeth. Dental crowns are also used for changing the shape and colour of your teeth, thereby adding to your aesthetic appeal. If a dental crown is needed on the front teeth, your dentist will ensure that there is perfect colour match with your other front teeth.

Dental crowns are necessary when you have old fillings that are beyond repair and on teeth that are chipped, fractured or sensitive. There are different types of materials from which dental crowns are made. These include a full porcelain crown, porcelain fused with metal crown and stainless steel crowns. Your dentist will explain all the differences to you and then based on what type of crown in appropriate, will advise the best possible solution for your case.

Once there is an agreement between your dentist and yourself, an impression will be taken. This will be sent to our dental laboratory who will fabricate your dental crown. Normally, this is ready in a few days and you will be provided with a temporary solution in the interim period. Once the permanent dental crown is ready, you will be required to come back to the dental surgery and your dentist will bond the new dental crown in place. This will be usable immediately.

Veneers

Veneers are thin laminates that are semi-translucent tooth-coloured shells. They are shaped in such a way that they bond to the front of your teeth perfectly. If your teeth are strong and healthy, veneers can be used instead of a dental crown. Dental veneers greatly improve your smile and are the best aesthetic solution if you want to avoid other complex dental procedures.

Veneers can be used to address spaces between your teeth. They are also used if you have broken or chipped teeth and permanently stained teeth. Porcelain veneers involve removal of a small amount of tooth surface whereas direct laminate veneers are directly applied to your tooth and then polished to get the desired look. Your dentist will examine you and advise the best aesthetic solution for you. When proper oral hygiene is followed, veneers last for many years.

Bridges

A bridge is a good solution for a missing tooth as it bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge can also be used for multiple missing teeth. The dental crowns that replaces the missing teeth are joined together to fit over teeth that are on either side of the gap. There are different types of bridges depending on how they are fabricated and how they anchor to other teeth.

Dental bridges help in restoring your smile and you will also be able to chew properly. More importantly, they prevent other teeth from drifting out of position. When you visit our dental surgery with a missing tooth or teeth, your dentist will assess your oral hygiene and advise an appropriate treatment plan. If a dental bridge is found to be the best solution, then your dentist will prepare your adjacent teeth for the procedure. Initially, a temporary bridge will be provided till our dental laboratory fabricates a permanent bridge. You will require two or three visits to our dental surgery for successful completion of your treatment.

Tooth Colour Restoration

There are many types of dental fillings available in the market today. In earlier days, traditional silver coloured amalgam fillings were used. However, white dental fillings are in common use now and this is mainly for aesthetic reasons. The main advantage of white fillings is that they are virtually identical to the colour of the natural tooth.

With advancement in technology, white dental fillings can be completed in one visit itself. The materials used in white fillings have an aesthetic appeal and also strengthen your tooth. If you have any question regarding our tooth colour restorations, please talk to our dentists.

Dental Implants

When you have lost a tooth, it leads to multiple practical problems in your daily life. An effective option to tackle this is using a dental implant to safely and successfully replace your lost tooth. Dental implants are also effective for more than one tooth. Dental implants are safe, durable and last a long time. 

Dental Implants, Smile Concepts, Dentist, Christchurch

The procedure to get a dental implant involves two steps. In the first step, a replacement root is fitted and this is then left to fuse with your jaw bone for a few weeks. The replacement root is made up of titanium or a titanium alloy. In the second step, a dental crown is fitted to the implant. They are suitable for both front as well as back teeth. Dental implants are also used to hold dentures in place. 

When you visit our dental surgery with a missing tooth, your dentist will examine you and advise whether dental implants are a viable option for you. The entire treatment plan lasts many weeks to allow for appropriate adaptation of the implants and will require multiple trips to your dentist.
