Crowns, Bridges & Veneers in Ayrshire

If you’re looking to restore your smile or enhance its beauty, our team of skilled professionals is here to help. Bridges are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both functionality and aesthetics. Crowns, on the other hand, can strengthen and protect damaged teeth, while Veneers offer a quick and effective way to improve the appearance of chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth. With our state-of-the-art technology and personalized approach, we’ll provide you with the best treatment options to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are an essential component of modern dental restoration, used to bring back the appearance and function of a damaged or decayed tooth. A dental crown acts like a cap that covers the remaining part of the tooth and is designed to match the surrounding teeth in terms of colour, shape, and size. This way, the crown blends seamlessly with your smile, restoring both its appearance and function.

Dental Crowns can also be used to protect weakened teeth, improve the appearance of discoloured or misshapen teeth, and support dental bridges.

There are several different types of dental crowns available, including:

  • Porcelain crowns
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns
  • Resin crowns
  • Gold crowns

Common Questions About Crowns

How long does a dental crown last?

On average, dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, depending on how well they are taken care of and how much wear and tear they are subjected to.

Can a dental crown be removed?

Yes, dental crowns can be removed if necessary. However, this is typically only done if the crown is damaged, or if there is a need to replace it with a new crown.

Is getting a dental crown painful?

No, getting a dental crown is not typically painful. Our dental professionals use local anaesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, ensuring that you feel comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a common solution for individuals who are missing one or more teeth. A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that is used to “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth, helping to restore the appearance and function of your smile.

Dental bridges are a common solution for replacing missing teeth. The process involves using two dental crowns that are placed on the two adjacent teeth to the gap left by the missing tooth.

Dental bridges offer several benefits, including:

  • Restoring the appearance of your smile
  • Improving your ability to chew and speak
  • Maintaining the proper alignment of your remaining teeth
  • Preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of place
  • Providing a long-lasting and durable solution for missing teeth

Common Questions About Bridges

How do I care for my dental bridge?

It is important to maintain proper oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups, to ensure the longevity of your dental bridge. Your dentist will provide you with specific care instructions, including how to brush and floss around the bridge, and will also monitor the fit and function of your bridge over time.

What are the advantages of dental bridges over other tooth replacement options?

Dental bridges offer several advantages, including being a non-invasive, cost-effective, and natural-looking solution for missing teeth. They also help to maintain the proper alignment of your remaining teeth, preventing them from shifting out of place.

How long do dental bridges last?

Dental bridges can last for many years with proper care and maintenance, including regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices. However, the lifespan of a dental bridge can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of bridge, the location of the missing teeth, and the patient’s overall oral health.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a type of dental restoration that can be used to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth. They are made from thin shells of porcelain or resin that are custom-fit to cover the front of a person’s teeth, giving them a new, improved appearance. Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of cosmetic dental problems, including gaps between teeth, misshapen or uneven teeth, discoloration, and minor misalignment issues.

Veneers offer many benefits over other cosmetic dental treatments. They are highly durable, with the ability to last for many years with proper care. They are also highly customisable, allowing your dentist to choose the perfect shape, size, and colour to create a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Veneers are also highly resistant to staining, ensuring that they will maintain their bright and white appearance for years to come.

Common Questions About Veneers

How long do Veneers last?

With proper care, veneers can last for many years, often up to a decade or more.

Can veneers be removed?

Yes, veneers can be removed by a dentist, but this is not typically a common occurrence. If a veneer does need to be removed, it can usually be done without damaging the underlying tooth.

Is the veneer procedure painful?

The veneer procedure is typically not painful, but some mild discomfort or sensitivity may be experienced during and after the procedure. Your dentist will provide you with a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated, and they may also prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort.
