Are you looking for a Dentist in Peterborough who is experienced in the placement and general maintenance of crowns and fixed bridges? Parkhill East Dental Care is a dentist in the area with over 30 years of experience. He has a passion for creating complex multi-unit prostheses which can restore function and appearance; giving you back that pearly white smile and a new sense of confidence.
Unlike dentures which can be removed, crowns and fixed bridges are fixed prosthetic devices which are custom made and fitted by a dentist. They cannot be removed and are cemented onto a person’s existing teeth or implants.
A dentist may recommend the fabrication of crowns if:
He wants to cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth or a tooth that has received root canal treatment (this is the most common reason)
– He wishes to protect a particularly weak tooth which is at risk of breaking or fracturing
– He needs to restore a tooth that has already been broken or fractured
– He needs to attach a bridge
A dentist may recommend the fitment of fixed bridges if:
– You are missing one or more teeth
Most crowns and fixed bridges are made to last a lifetime. However, it is common for them to require maintenance. Over time, they may start to loosen or fall out which will require a quick visit to your dentist. To avoid this, proper oral hygiene is of the utmost importance.
