Fill in Unsightly Gaps, Repair Chips and Cracks and More with Crowns, Bridges and Veneers in Preston
Are you missing several teeth but can’t afford a full set of dental implants? Is a yellow, stained tooth ruining your smile and you’re fed up of endless teeth whitening treatments? Crowns, veneers and bridges are three staple dentistry services, and there are few issues that one of these — or a combination — can’t fix.
Crowns, Bridges or Veneers?
If your smile was once your best asset, but tooth loss, stains or chips have you retreating from cameras, speaking opportunities or events so you can avoid embarrassment, there is a solution. Having crowns, bridges or veneers in Preston can transform your smile and make you excited to show off your teeth again.
If your teeth are decayed or have been worn down from grinding at night, dental crowns can restore their look and function. A dental crown is a permanent covering, effectively a cap, that sits over your original tooth. Because they are cemented in place, crowns are secure and remove the need for extraction. Crowns are also used in dental implants, where they sit on an abutment (a small connector) fitted to an artificial root. Many dental crowns are poor-quality, leaving a noticeable black line by the gums, which is actually the metal-like material of the crown showing through. When you get your dental crowns at our Preston clinic, they’ll be imperceptible and look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Do you have multiple missing teeth in a row? A dental bridge is a perfect treatment for filling in multiple gaps. Missing teeth, aside from affecting your appearance and confidence, can lead to remaining teeth moving out of place as well as more serious conditions, like bone loss and gum disease. A dental bridge is a series of false teeth anchored either side by crowns. These anchoring teeth may be traditional crowns or implants. Because they are secured in place by the neighbouring teeth, dental bridges are a cost-effective permanent treatment.
If your teeth are heavily stained from years of drinking coffee and wine and eating curries, or if they’re misshapen or have cracks running through them, your cosmetic dentist might recommend dental veneers. These are individually crafted ultra-thin layers of ceramic that are bonded to the surface of the tooth. As a result, they can instantly improve the appearance of your teeth and are the go-to choice for people who want a perfect smile. Despite being wafer-thin, they are strong and can last upwards of 10 years. If you’re considering veneers, it’s vital to consult a dentist you can trust. In many cases, your teeth can be improved with less invasive and more affordable treatments, such as tooth whitening and dental bonding. You can trust our dentists in Preston to recommend only the right treatment for you based on the smile you want to achieve, not how much we can charge you.
