Dental Crowns And Bridges Help Decayed Teeth

By Jonathan Pitts

If your teeth become very badly decayed they can become too weak to survive if they are given just a filling. Your Oxford Dentist can place a crown and give a tooth a fresh start. If a tooth is lost completely a denture is not required, this is because a bridge can be made which will span the gap, and in the gap a tooth will be placed to fill the space.

Decayed teeth are likely to fracture, they will lose their tooth substance. There’s risks that a tooth fracture can go below the margin of the gum, this makes restoring a tooth a very difficult/near impossible task for your Oxford dentist.

Crowns are not made by just one material, they can be made from several materials, gold crowns and porcelain crowns are the most popular two used by a Oxford dentistry. Gold crowns tend to be used for back teeth; this is because gold is very strong in thin sections meaning less of the tooth needs to be drilled away by the Oxford dental practitioner to actually fit the crown.

Gold will be an easy material for the Oxford dentistry practitioner to use, this is because when it’s cast gold will hardly shrink. It’s also easy to polish the gold, porcelain crowns on the other hand do tend to shrink making it harder for the dentist as they have to estimate when making the crown and may have to adjust it after its cast. Porcelain crowns tend to be used for the front teeth but can be used for the back teeth. The porcelain crowns can appear very natural.

Some porcelain crowns contain metal which adds strength and support to the crown, the metal acts as a barrier for light causing the crown to look dull.

A bridge enables your Oxford dentist to replace lost teeth without using cosmetic dentistry oxford procedures such as dentures and dental implants. A bridge holds a false tooth in place where the gap is by being attached to the neighbouring teeth. A bridge is a more cost effective oxford dental treatment; however dentures and implants look more aesthetically pleasing.
