Dental Crowns & Bridges in Torquay

Suitable for decaying or missing teeth, dental crowns and bridges are fixed prosthesis that will improve the function and appearance of your smile. Crowns are usually best for individual teeth that are worn down or weakened by decay whereas bridges can be used to place one or more missing teeth.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are typically used to restore teeth that have been worn down or weakened as a result of decay. A crown may also be a great solution for a discoloured filling, as they improve the appearance of the tooth. They’re also suitable if you have had a root filling and you need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth.

At Avenue Dental, we have a number of different crown options available from all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns to metal and porcelain fused to metal crowns. Your Dentist will discuss which option would be best suited to your needs at your consultation. This will depend on what is best for your teeth and your budget.

Dental Bridges

A bridge can be used if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps between missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to move or rotate into the empty space. Missing teeth can also lead to other issues like jaw pain and gum disease.

Bridges are attached to the surrounding natural teeth to fill the gap left by the missing teeth. The teeth that they are attached to serve as support mechanisms for the bridge. As with crowns, you have a choice of material for the prosthesis and they can be matched with the colour of your natural teeth. All of these options can be discussed with a Dentist during your appointment.
