If you have been considering dental crowns or a dental bridge to restore your healthy smile, our Kay's dentists in Kampala near you are happy to help.
Dental crowns cover weakened teeth, to provide strength and to hide cosmetic flaws. Several different materials are used to make crowns including composite resin, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, gold, and nickel. This type of dental restoration must be strong because it is subjected to immense biting and chewing forces.
Dental bridges consist of two tooth crowns anchored to one or more replacement teeth. Usually, a dental bridge is made of porcelain material or porcelain-fused-to-metal.
The CAD/CAM CEREC system by densplysirona is the most innovative technology modern dentistry has to offer, and you can find it here, at Kay’s Dental Clinic.
Thanks to CEREC, we can provide our patients with inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers in only one appointment and zirconia-based ceramic bridges in 2 appointments!
Zirconia and porcelain, are the best materials in dentistry. Their resistance is greater that natural teeth, they don’t cause allergic reactions; and are very esthetic. They duplicate natural tooth color, they do not absorb moisture and they don’t change color overtime.
For restorations that previously required 7 – 10 days to be completed by a dental lab, the preparation is scanned directly by a special intraoral camera, the restoration is then designed on a computer, and milled in minutes! Simple and fast and accurate! The whole process takes about an hour to complete.
CEREC technology helps to save time for both the patient and dentist. The aesthetic tooth restoration is not only essential for good health, .but the beautiful appearance of the finished result is key to confidence and self esteem.
Crowns are very versatile tooth restorations and are used for a variety of purposes, including:
Tooth crowns and bridgework require the same dental care as natural teeth. Brush and floss every day, like you normally do and maintain your regular schedule of dentist visits. If you are ready to book an appointment for crowns and bridges in Kampala Uganda, fill out our online booking form today!
