Crowns and Bridges

    Dental crowns can be thought of as a “cover” or a “cap” that provides full-coverage protection for a damaged tooth. Dental bridges consist of 2 crowns that are fitted onto existing teeth adjacent to a space created by missing teeth. Artificial teeth connected between the crowns will ‘bridge’ the gap.

    Why might I need a crown or bridge?

    Crowns have both aesthetic and functional benefits. 

    • Covering a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
    • Covering a tooth that has had root canal treatment
    • Restoring a tooth that has a very big hole that a normal filling would not last

     

    If you have one or more missing teeth, a bridge can be an effective way to fill in the gap.

    Crowns and Bridges vs Dentures

    Unlike removable devices like dentures, which you have to take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth and can only be removed by a dentist.

    This means they function and feel more like your natural teeth.

    What can I expect during crown or bridge treatment?

    Step 1

    The natural teeth that will be used as a support will be trimmed lightly to make space for the crowns.

    Step 2

    A mould of your teeth will be taken. This will be sent to a dental laboratory where professional technicians will create your customised crown or bridge.

    Step 3

    After around 2 weeks, your crown or bridge will be ready. You’ll come back to our clinic, where your dentist will precisely mount and cement it permanently

    Pain Free Dentistry

    For many, dental procedures have always been associated with pain. Pain is one of the main reasons why many patients avoid going to the dentist. At Advanced Dental, our dental experts are equipped to provide a pain-free experience with various anaesthetic options. 

    • Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
      Nitrous oxide is administered through a custom nosepiece to produce a calming effect, reducing fear and anxiety, enabling patients to better tolerate injections or other potentially uncomfortable procedures. The effects wear off almost instantly once the procedure is done.
       
    • Local Anaesthesia 
      Local anaesthetic is administered via an injectable to impart a numbing effect that lasts for up to 60 minutes. It is injected into the part of the mouth that requires treatment. Patients won't experience any sedation or altered consciousness from local anaesthesia.
       
    • IV Sedation
      For procedures longer or more complicated procedures, IV (Intra-venous) sedation is used to induce a state of deeper relaxation. It is carried out by a certified anaesthetist who will monitor the patient throughout the duration of the procedure. 
       
    • General Anaesthesia 
      General anaesthesia is administered via an IV drip and it affects the entire body and produces a state of unconsciousness. This is used for lengthy, extensive oral surgeries that might cause more pain than local anaesthesia can address.
