Offering a solution to restore a tooth back to its full function and appearance, crowns cover a single tooth and are made from high-grade dental ceramic. A crown is placed when damage or extensive dental work rules out the use of a traditional filling.
Used when replacing several missing teeth, bridges are made up of several teeth held by crowns secured to sound teeth on either side of the space, preventing movement of the adjacent teeth.
Traditionally used for reconstructive purposes, crowns & bridges are now becoming increasingly utilised in cosmetic dental procedures to improve and straighten smiles.
Naturally, we conduct a thorough examination and begin careful preparation prior to beginning your crown or bridge treatment. A crown or bridge can be completed in just two appointment visits.
We also insist the best quality and only use crowns are locally made by Australian experts.
Crowns are used to restore a single tooth that has suffered extensive damage.
These are constructed from porcelain, which is an extremely strong restoration material that can be colour matched to the exact shade of your natural tooth. Each crown is custom designed and fabricated to your unique specifications, and is permanently bonded to your prepared tooth. Crowns act as a “cap” and cover your natural tooth structure. Crowns are particularly aesthetically pleasing as porcelain mimics the translucent qualities of your natural tooth enamel.
Bridges are used to restore single or multiple tooth loss
Bridges utilise a prosthetic tooth/teeth (known as a pontic) fused to two dental crowns to literally bridge the gap between your remaining teeth. These restorations are constructed from incredibly strong porcelain material that blends seamlessly with your natural tooth structure and reflects and absorbs light in the same manner as your natural tooth enamel.
