Crowns and Bridges 2018-04-04T14:38:36+00:00

Dental Crown Marbella

Dental Crowns are a very successful option for repairing cracked, broken, decayed or heavily filled teeth. This restoration, at Oasis Dental Clinic in Marbella, is bonded onto the existing tooth to cover and protect the remaining structure. The colour is matched to that of your own natural teeth and they can look and feel exactly like natural teeth, so nobody will be able to tell the difference. Many different materials can be used and for improved health and aesthetics porcelain crowns are an ideal choice.

A dental bridge in Marbella is one of the options used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. By fixing a replacement tooth (or teeth) to the natural teeth at either side of the gap, a bridge will improve your appearance and the way you bite, chew and speak. As with a crown, the colour is matched to that of your own teeth to create a natural-looking appearance.

Dental Crown Treatment Marbella

Dental Crowns and bridgework are classed as indirect restorations, so a laboratory technician is involved in the process to produce a custom-made, well-fitted restoration which is specific to each patient’s tooth. This means that normally indirect restorations generally require two or more visits. Please bear this in mind if you are short of time and are planning to have work done which could possibly involve the laboratory.

During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth and makes an impression of the area to be restored. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory, which creates the dental restoration and a provisional crown/bridge is fabricated. At the next appointment, the dentist cements the permanent restoration onto the prepared cavity and adjusts it as needed. In large cases where we are significantly altering the appearance or occlusion (bite) there will be additional stages of try-ins and provisional restorations.
