Dentistry can sometimes be about rebuilding a lost smile, as opposed to fixing your current one. In some cases, teeth can be beyond repair and may need to be removed, and sometimes teeth may be broken or knocked out, and might need a replacement. It is important to remember that teeth should be replaced as soon as possible, as the jaw can be affected if there are teeth missing. If you are looking for crown and bridge work in Glasgow, then The Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry is only too happy to restore your smile for you.
A crown is necessary when replacing a single tooth and can be used on a variety of damaged teeth. A crown is effective when the tooth has been damaged due to decay, to the point where the tooth has been disfigured and can no longer be used effectively, but the root is still healthy. Often a part of the tooth will be drilled away to accommodate the crown, which is fitted over the healthy part of the enamel. The enamel is also drilled away slightly to provide a better surface for the adhesive to bond to. Crown and bridge work in Glasgow are available at The Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry, so make sure to book in for a consultation, and we will be able to advise you on which is the best treatment for you. We pride ourselves in putting the patient’s priorities above all else, so we want to be as transparent as possible with our treatments, and make sure you have the best experience possible, as well as the most effective treatment.
Due to the nature of tooth decay, and poor dental health, if problems are not addressed immediately then several teeth can end up needing replacement. If you have multiple teeth that are missing or need a replacement in a row, then a bridge can be the best option for you. A bridge works in a similar way to a denture, however, is fixed like a crown, so you will not need to remove or maintain the bridge. Therefore, it is an extremely effective, and affordable way to replace several teeth at once, without having to undergo a specific treatment for each gap. The bridge will be anchored to existing teeth, or quite often a crown or dental implant on either side, to ensure that the bridge is secure.
Like bridges, dentures work to replace several teeth at once, without using multiple treatments. Dentures work to replace an entire row or set of teeth in one treatment. Dentures can also be secured with dental implants, so that they do not slip in your mouth, which can prove more effective than some adhesives. If you are looking for dentures, or crown and bridge work in Glasgow, then we will be able to offer you a wide range of treatments, and a team of qualified staff that will be able to assist you in any way that they can.
