Dental Crowns & Bridges in Nicosia

Natural, Long-Lasting Smile With Dental Restorations

For dental restoration, two standout solutions are crowns and bridges.

Crowns are ‘caps’, usually crafted from porcelain, to cover a damaged tooth, giving it the shape, size, and strength of a natural tooth. Bridges, on the other hand, are fixed solutions that ‘bridge’ the gap created by one or more missing teeth, anchored firmly by natural teeth or implants.

Both serve the pivotal role of restoring your smile’s beauty and function. Beyond veneers and implants, our dedicated services in crowns and bridges ensure that damaged or missing teeth do not stand in the way of your radiant smile. 

Whether you need a single crown to restore a damaged tooth or a long-lasting bridge to replace multiple missing teeth, call our expert dentists at Symeou Dental Center Nicosia. With our advanced and innovative dental solutions, you’ll regain the confidence of a complete, functional, and beautiful set of teeth!

Dental Restorations:
The Difference Between Crowns & Bridges

Patients often ask, “What’s the difference between dental crowns and dental bridges?”

Dental Crowns

Crafted in the shape of natural teeth, dental crowns serve a dual purpose – enhancing the appearance of damaged teeth and providing structural strength. This restoration offers a durable and reliable solution that seamlessly integrates with your existing teeth, maintaining the natural look & feel of your smile.

Dental Bridges

They replace missing teeth, effectively bridging gaps and restoring the mouth’s function and appearance. These restorations consist of artificial teeth supported by dental crowns on either side. Dental bridges prevent surrounding teeth from shifting and facilitate biting and chewing.

With proper care, crowns and bridges should last more than 10 years.

Types of Crowns

Porcelain Crowns

These crowns seamlessly blend in, making them an ideal choice for improved aesthetics and a natural appearance.

With their remarkable durability and natural look, these ceramic crowns closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function. This makes them a popular choice for achieving a stunning smile while ensuring long-lasting results.

While they may not mimic the appearance of natural teeth, they are durable, particularly for teeth that bear significant chewing force. However, due to many disadvantages, they are rarely used.

At Symeou Dental Center Nicosia, we offer Porcelain and Zirconia Crowns tailored to suit your unique preferences and functional requirements.

Apart from traditional crown-making methods, digital dentistry now allows us to provide you with all-ceramic crowns in a single visit!

Types of Bridges

Traditional Bridges

These bridges consist of pontics – artificial teeth – that are held in place by dental crowns affixed to adjacent teeth. This classic approach offers a reliable and effective way to replace missing teeth, restoring both function and aesthetics.

When only one neighboring tooth is available for support, cantilever bridges come to the rescue. These bridges provide a solution for cases where a traditional bridge may not be feasible.

Maryland bridges feature a framework bonded to the back of adjacent teeth, eliminating the need for crowns. This option preserves the structure of neighboring teeth while still offering the benefits of bridge restoration.

Anchored to dental implants, these bridges offer remarkable support and mimic the feel and appearance of natural teeth.

Bridges made using our Cerec system can be fabricated and permanently cemented in place on the same day. Contact us to learn more!

We securely bond or cement the restoration onto the prepared teeth, making sure it's a comfortable fit that improves your smile's aesthetics and enhances functionality.

Benefits of Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges improve the appearance, function, and alignment of teeth. Here’s a more detailed list of their benefits:

Restored Tooth Function

Dental crowns and bridges allow people to bite, chew and speak comfortably again. Beyond aesthetics, these restorations reinstate full tooth functionality.

Enhance your smile’s allure as dental crowns and bridges fill gaps and conceal imperfections. Unveil a natural, captivating smile that radiates confidence.

Dental crowns and bridges extend beyond looks, enhancing speech clarity and restoring your ability to enjoy food with ease.

Protect your dental alignment with bridges that prevent neighboring teeth from shifting, ensuring the preservation of your overall oral health.

Care and Maintenance

Follow the below instructions for a lasting and confident smile with dental crowns and bridges:

Risks and Complications

While dental crown and bridge placement are generally safe and widely practiced, complications can arise in some cases. Some potential risks include:

Tooth Sensitivity

Rest assured, this discomfort is usually temporary and self-resolves as your mouth adjusts to the new dental restoration.

Practicing proper oral hygiene is crucial to prevent decay or infection at the crown or bridge margins. Meticulous care safeguards the longevity of your restoration and overall oral health.

While patients can experience some discomfort or sensitivity, these symptoms typically subside within a few days. Should persistent pain or discomfort emerge, talk to your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions

Getting a crown and bridge includes tooth preparation, taking impressions, placing temporary restorations, crafting the permanent restoration in a dental laboratory, and securing the permanent restoration in its place.

Crowns and bridges fulfill distinct roles in dental treatment. Crowns are employed to repair individual damaged teeth, whereas bridges are utilized for replacing missing teeth. The decision between the two depends on your unique dental requirements and circumstances.

Following the placement of a bridge, it is advisable to wait until the anesthesia wears off before eating. Additionally, it is crucial to avoid hard or sticky foods initially to prevent any potential dislodgement or damage to the newly placed bridge.

A drawback of a bridge crown is that it requires the preparation and crowning of adjacent healthy teeth. Furthermore, in case of failure or damage to the bridge, the entire restoration may need replacement.

Investing in dental bridges can be highly beneficial as they restore missing teeth, enhance oral function, improve aesthetics, and contribute to maintaining teeth alignment. It is essential to discuss with your dentist to weigh the costs and advantages and choose the most suitable treatment option for your needs.

If any of the teeth supporting the bridge need treatment for decay, infection, or damage, a root canal may be necessary. Your dentist will evaluate the condition of the supporting teeth and suggest any required treatments accordingly.

Certainly, crowns are meticulously designed to match the color, shape, and size of natural teeth. They are individually tailored to blend flawlessly with your existing teeth, resulting in a smile that looks natural and harmonious.

A dental bridge is designed primarily to replace one or more missing teeth by spanning the gap where the teeth once stood. Therefore, a candidate suitable for a dental bridge should present the below conditions:

  • One or Several Missing Teeth
  • Healthy Teeth on Either Side of the Gap
  • Good Oral Hygiene
  • Stable Jaw Bone and Gum Health
  • Desire for a Fixed Solution

Some individuals might not be candidates for dental implants due to insufficient bone density, certain medical conditions, or personal preferences. For them, dental bridges might be a preferable solution.
