Today’s modern crowns are far superior to older ones, looking and feeling much more natural. Using the latest 3D technology and laser scanning, our full porcelain crowns are metal-free meaning they feel less bulky than older ones, and do not have a metal edge showing near the gum line. They also look far more realistic.
Crowns are usually fitted when a tooth has been damaged, either through decay or by accident, and is no longer strong enough to support any other type of restoration, such as a filling.Crowns are also sometimes needed to support a dental bridge.
Usually you will need two appointments for a crown to be fitted. At the first one, we will numb the tooth that it is to be crowned, and the surrounding area, so you will not feel any pain. We prepare the tooth, take impressions (moulds) of the area, and fit a temporary crown.
The impressions are sent to our dental laboratory, where skilled craftsmen create a porcelain crown that will fit perfectly and match your other teeth. At your second appointment, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent one is bonded permanently into place. Some crowns have a metal base inside with a porcelain layer over it, such crowns as called PFM Crowns or Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns.
If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, a good solution is a bridge. Here is how they work:-
• Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base, which gives them a solid structure and makes them load-bearing. All bridges have a porcelain layering which makes them appear like natural teeth. These bridges which have metal component inside and a layer of porcelain over it are known as PFM Bridges or Porcelain Fused to Metal Bridges.
• A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed in place just like the natural teeth.
• Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing. Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.
You can have sensitivity to hot and cold without needing a root canal.
For those needing a root canal, the sensitivity and pain from the hot and cold lingers long after the drink or food.
If you've noticed that your gums are swollen it may be a sign of an infected tooth.
Sometimes we can have inflamed gums after flossing or brushing too hard, this is different. The swollen gums will be tender and a bit painful to the touch and will remain swollen.
The darkening of the gums is a sign that the gums are decayed. If there is an infection and the tooth is dying, the gums will begin to decay.
This is a tell-tale sign that you may need a root canal.
The aligners treatment achieves optimal and accurate results in a short period of time. Treatment duration can be shorter compared to conventional fixed orthodontic treatment. Since aligners can be removed during eating, there are no food restrictions and you can have food of your choice during treatment. The amount of force delivered by aligners is calibrated, so treatment with aligners is painless.
Clear aligners are also recommended foruse after you complete your orthodontic treatment. These appliances help to maintain the results you want until your teeth have settled down and finished moving.
Clear aligners are orthodontic devices that are a transparent, plastic form of dental braces used to adjust teeth.
Treatment begins with taking x-rays and photographs for diagnostic purposes, followed by capturing the patient's bite, teeth, and gums via a bite registration and polyvinyl siloxane impressions or an intra-oral digital scanner. The latter method has greatly increased in popularity in recent years as digital scanning technology has improved. The computerized model suggests stages between the current and desired teeth positions, and aligners are created for each stage. Each aligner is worn for 22 hours a day for one to two weeks.These slowly move the teeth into the position agreed between the orthodontist and the patient. Before starting the treatment, tooth-coloured small tags are placed on some teeth, which help in movement of these teeth. These are called as attachments. Patients are recalled in 2-3 months interval to review the progress of the treatment.
TRANSPARENT The CLEAR ALIGNER splint is clear and transparent, almost invisible which enables youto talk and laugh without restrictions or impediment.
COMFORTABLEThe high-quality splint makes your mouth feel good. It is pleasantly smooth, with no poking braces or wires.
REMOVABLE You can take the aligners out at any time and put them in again quickly and easily, e.g., when eating or cleaning.
HYGIENIC You can easily keep the CLEAR ALIGNER clean, e.g., using toothpaste and tooth brush. Since the aligners can be removed during brushing, maintaining oral hygiene during aligners treatment is never difficult.
EFFECTIVE The aligners treatment achieves optimal and accurate results in a short period of time. Treatment duration can be shorter compared to conventional fixed orthodontic treatment.
AFFORDABLE In many cases, the therapy is more cost effective than other types of treatment for correcting the position of teeth.
NO FOOD RESTRICTIONS Since aligners can be removed before eating, there are no food restrictions and you can have any food of your choice during treatment.
LESS PAINFUL The amount of force delivered by aligners is calibrated, so treatment with aligners is painless.
A chipped or cracked tooth is a two-fold sign of a tooth that may need a root canal. For one, perhaps there was trauma on the tooth that created the chip or crack and has now caused inflamed or infected pulp. Secondly, the tooth may be so far decayed or infected that it is cracked or chipped from being dead. Either way, you'll need likely a root canal to try to save the remainder of the tooth.
If your gums are tender to the touch, or even without touch, you may have root canal pain. When at the dentist, be sure to mention your tender gums.
