Crown and Bridges Near McGraths Hill
While damaged or broken teeth are unattractive, they can also hurt or separate, creating much worse issues. By carrying out restorative dentistry operations like dental crowns and dental bridges near McGraths Hill, we can assist you in feeling more confident about your teeth and having a healthier, brighter smile.
Broken or cracked teeth are prone to breaking and causing problems. A tooth-shaped cap, known as a crown, is placed over an existing misshapen or damaged tooth to seal it and protect it from further damage to keep broken teeth together and maintain an even smile.
If the teeth are entirely missing, it is impossible to place a crown. So, instead, we create a bridge tooth, anchored at each end by a crown on an existing tooth, and it allows us to fill the gap in your teeth.
Your dental crowns and bridges deal with the same wear and tear as your natural teeth. Depending on your oral care habits and your lifestyle, your crowns and bridges can last up to 15 years. However, dental crowns and dental bridges expertly installed by Windsor specialists will last much longer. By following good oral hygiene after your crown or bridge installation, you can keep your bridges and crowns in superior condition for decades.
If you’re unsure whether you need a bridge or crown for your teeth restoration, you can head over to Good Smile Dental for a consultation.

A root canal treatment is used to repair and save teeth that have had their pulp exposed because of infection or trauma. Root canal treatment first involves extracting the infected nerve and pulp, then cleaning and sealing the root. A crown later supports the tooth.
At Good Smile, we exclusively treat our patients with the most recent technology to properly clean and prepare all canals before filling them.
The procedure of root canal:
- General Anesthesia: To begin, we will give you local anesthesia to numb the infected tooth and surrounding gums (Nitrous oxide, oral sedatives, and intravenous (IV) sedation are also used in dentistry to help you relax).
- Implantation of a dental dam: Your doctor will put a small rubber dam over the area before beginning root canal treatment. During the procedure, this isolates the tooth and keeps it dry.
- A hole for access: The pulp is accessed through a small tooth crown opening.
- Removal of the pulp: The nerves, blood vessels, and tissues inside the tooth are removed.
- Using tiny dental instruments.
- Canal sculpting: The pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and shaped.
- After removing the pulp.
- Filling the canals: We will fill the empty canals with gutta-percha, a flexible, rubbery.
- Dental material.
- The tooth is sealed: Your doctor will fill the tooth with a dental filling to prevent.
- Bacteria from re-entering.
- Putting the finishing touches on the restoration: A dental crown will be required to protect the treated tooth and restore your bite. Crowns are made to order and typically take two to three weeks to complete. When your crown is finished, the temporary crown is removed, and your doctor will install a permanent crown.
