What is a dental crown?

Dental crowns are caps that are placed over teeth and kept in place with dental adhesive or cement. They can be made of plastic, ceramic, or metal alloys. Plastic and ceramic are more reminiscent of natural teeth. Metal alloys come in silver and gold. Dental crowns are made of inert materials that do not deteriorate themselves. However, the tooth underneath is still subject to decay and gum disease.

General Questions

Overview of what happens during the dental crown procedure

First Appointment: Clinical examination and radiographs to assess the suitability of a crown for you. Our dentist will also be able to advise you on the material for your crown and address any of your concerns.

Second appointment: Your tooth (or teeth) will be prepared for crowning. This involves reducing the size of your tooth to make space for the crown. This is usually done under local anaesthesia. Next, a mould of the prepared tooth will be taken and sent to a laboratory to prepare your custom crown. A temporary crown will be fitted over the prepared tooth until your next appointment.

Third appointment: The temporary crown will be removed, and the surface of the tooth will be cleaned. The custom crown will then be fixed to the prepared tooth with dental adhesive or cement.

The dental crown process aims to restore a damaged or weakened tooth's function, strength, and appearance. We at Garden Dental Clinic strive to provide long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing results for all our patients.

Dental Bridge Singapore offers a practical and aesthetically pleasing way to replace lost teeth to restore and precisely match the colour and shape of natural teeth.

General Questions

Overview of what happens during the dental crown procedure

Consultation and Examination: The dentist evaluates the teeth and gums to determine whether dental bridges are the solution for your missing teeth.

Treatment Planning: The dentist develops a treatment plan that outlines the type of dental bridge to be used, the materials involved, and the steps in the procedure. Your dentist will prepare the tooth if needed.

Impressions: Your dentist will take the impression and design a custom-made dental bridge in Singapore that matches the shape and size of your natural teeth. Until then, your dentist will place a temporary bridge to protect the teeth, if needed. It may take a few days to create the new bridge.

Bridge Placement: Your dentist will place the bridge and check the fit, colour, and bite of the new bridge. Your dentist may make adjustments if necessary.

Cementation or Bonding: The dental bridge is fixed in place using dental cement or bonding material.

Final Adjustments: After cementation, the dentist makes any final adjustments to the bridge to ensure it fits comfortably and properly within your bite.

Post-Placement Care: Follow your dentist's instructions on post-placement care to ensure the longevity of the dental bridge. At Garden Dental Clinic in Singapore, we provide a durable solution that gives a beautiful smile to your face.

When do you need a dental bridge?

A dental bridge can be used to replace a small number of teeth. However, the viability of this option depends on the health of the neighbouring teeth, supporting gums, and bone. Our dentist will thoroughly assess these factors at your first consultation.
