Protect, Restore, Prevent & Enhance with

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are custom made caps for your teeth which can increase strength and support as well as improving the aesthetics of the tooth. They are often recommended if a tooth is weakened by a very large filling or root canal treatment.

Bridges provide a fast and efficient solution for gaps created by missing teeth in the mouth. They simply use the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth as anchors, thus giving a fixed permanent options for the space.

Wear the

Crown

With many people keeping their natural teeth for much longer, we often find that patients are presenting with heavily filled and structurally compromised teeth. These teeth are often vulnerable to irreparable fractures and cracks that can ultimately lead to loss of tooth. Crowns are extremely valuable in protecting such teeth and ensuring they remain in your mouth for longer!

Some of the main benefits of crown treatment include:

The protection of heavily filled and old teeth

Preventing and repairing of cracks and fractures

The restoration and maintenance of your natural bite

Prevention of stress on your other teeth

Prevention of shifting and tilting of adjacent teeth

Prevention of periodontal disease or further decay of the remaining teeth

Enhancement of your smile, speech and chewing function

The

Process

1

Our dentists will always take an x-ray of the teeth beforehand to ensure it is structurally sound and minimise treatment complications. We also confirm the shade of the adjacent teeth to ensure your crown is perfectly colour matched.

2

Using state of the art dental materials we then take an accurate mould of the prepared tooth. This is then express posted to our Australian based lab to start making your crown or bridge. Once the impression is done, your dentist will cover the tooth with a temporary version of the crown. Its only purpose is to protect the underlying preparation and will not look or feel like the final product. It is important to take care of the tooth until the final crown is fitted.

3

Once your crown arrives in the clinic we will call you immediately to make an insertion appointment. The process of fitting the crown is very simple, as the temporary is carefully removed, then the final crown is permanently cemented! This short appointment is the final stage of your crown.

We use only the newest technology in

Bridges

Bridges provide a fast and efficient solution for gaps created by missing teeth in the mouth. They simply use the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth as anchors, thus giving a fixed permanent options for the space. Our highly skilled dentists use only the most recent technology available as well as working with Australian based dental laboratories. This is to ensure that your bridge is made with the best material and to the highest standard. The process in which we create the bridge is almost identical to that of the crown and takes the same amount of procedure time.

The treatment process for a bridge is near identical to that of the crown mentioned above, after the initial consult for the bridge, the anchor teeth are prepared, an impression is taken, the lab fabricate the bridge, and finally the bridge is cemented.

Some of the main benefits of a bridge treatment include:

The protection of heavily filled and old teeth

Preventing and repairing of cracks and fractures

Replacement of missing tooth/teeth

The restoration and maintenance of your natural bite

Prevention of stress on your other teeth

Prevention of shifting and tilting of adjacent teeth

Prevention of periodontal disease or further decay of the remaining teeth

Enhancement of your smile, speech and chewing function
