Fill the gap and wear a crown

Fill the gap and wear a crown

Whilst it's true that missing teeth and gaps can affect your self-confidence, there's no need to suffer in silence - help could be at hand in the shape of a crown. Here at DentalCareXtra we offer local expertise and excellent care so there's no need to travel for the advice and treatments that can help you achieve the smile you so long for.

What is a crown?
A crown is simply a porcelain tooth that is permanently attached to an artificial titanium root implanted in the gum (whereas plates of multiple teeth are known as bridges or dentures). The beauty of crowns and bridges is that not only do they look completely natural, but they also feel strong and secure.

How do crowns work?
Crowns offer a permanent solution for gaps and missing teeth, but perfection takes time - creating and fitting them requires a little patience. In the first stage of fitting a crown, a small titanium post is surgically implanted into the jawbone to hold the replacement tooth firm. There are two different types of implants:

• Endosteal - placed directly into the jawbone.
• Subperiosteal - fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue.

In both cases, the gum must be fully healed before your dentist can undertake the next stage, making and fitting the replacement ceramic tooth. Crowns are carefully crafted to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth, using an advanced Cerec 3D process to produce artificial teeth that are strong and look completely natural.
