There are many options available for people who have teeth that are damaged, weakened or missing. These include dental bridges and dental crowns, which are available at Cabinteely Dental Care, Dublin to our patients.
Dental bridges have been used to fill gaps in the smile for many years with great success. There are different types of bridge, and we are pleased to offer our clients traditional fixed bridges and Maryland bridges:
A fixed bridge is usually used for patients who have a small number of missing teeth. The bridge is designed to blend in with the natural teeth, so patients will be unable to tell the restoration apart from the rest of their teeth.
A Maryland bridge is comprised of a false tooth attached to two wings, which are attached to the neighbouring teeth. Maryland bridges help to restore and strengthen the teeth, creating a functional and beautiful smile.
Crowns are a popular cosmetic dental treatment at Cabinteely Dental Care. They are used to strengthen teeth damaged or weakened by injury or decay. Crowns are sometimes known as caps due to the way they sit over the teeth. The treatment process requires decayed tissue to first be removed and the tooth cleaned. The new crown will be based on tooth impressions and will be fixed in place once ready.
Crowns are available in different materials, including porcelain, ceramic and precious metals. Porcelain crowns are one of the more popular choices of dental crown because they are strong, durable and provide an excellent level of smile aesthetics.
At Cabinteely Dental Care we can offer our patients crowns on the same day. We are one of the 16 clinics in Ireland with the technology of the Cerec machine to enable us to perform this procedure. This means no more tray impressions which can sometimes be uncomfortable for our patients. We can simply scan the prepared tooth and watch the crown being made with our amazing modern technology. Gone are the days of waiting with a temporary crown for two to three weeks.
