Dental Bridge Vs. Dental Implants – What’s Better for My Missing Tooth?

We understand that having a  missing tooth can make you feel self-conscious, or uncomfortable. If you have a missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or unstable dentures, you may be wondering what your restoration options are. The good news is, there is a solution to fit your situation. Your dentist will be able to discuss crown and bridge treatment in Bentleigh East with you, to assess your dental needs, and explain which option would be the best solution for you.

Implant crown and bridge

A dental crown and bridge may be a suitable solution; a crown (or sometimes known as a cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth’s surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure but cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. A crown is basically a manufactured tooth. It’s generally made of porcelain or ceramic that can be colour and texture-matched to your existing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are surgically placed into the upper and lower jaw bone. Our team makes sure the dental implants are incredibly natural looking, and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile.

Crowns on Implants

A crown on implants involves an artificial root made out of a titanium screw which is placed into the bone of the lost tooth, and can be used as a foundation to secure the artificial crown. When crowns are fixed to an implant structure, there is an extra layer of security, giving you peace of mind that the foundation of the implant has not been through yeasts of use. If the crown requires maintenance, it is simply unscrewed, modified and screwed back on.
