At McCrae Marong Strathfieldsaye Dental, we offer dental crowns and bridges to restore, rejuvenate and repair your smile. Which one you need depends on how much of your tooth is missing and where in the mouth it is.
Ask our experienced team and they will let you know what your options are.
All these different treatments (Crowns, Bridges, Veneers, Inlays, Onlays) essentially do the same thing: Make your teeth return to their original shape. Dental crowns are an ideal treatment for restoring form and function to a damaged or weak tooth.
However, unlike a filling, they are made in the laboratory and then glued into the mouth afterwords. As they are custom made for your individual tooth, they will usually feel, look and perform like your own teeth.
A crown – sometimes referred to as a cap – is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth coloured crown) are made to match the shape, size, and colour or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.
Reasons for crowns:
A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure and is typically used to treat teeth that are:
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments.
A temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
Replacing a missing tooth does more for you than restore the aesthetics of your smile. When you lose a tooth, the teeth on either side of the gap start to migrate towards the gap. This causes problems with your bite and can lead to complicated jaw problems down the track. By replacing a missing tooth with a dental bridge, you can ensure a healthy smile.
A dental bridge is three or more dental crowns fused together to replace a missing tooth. The teeth on either side of the gap are prepared and shaped for the dental crowns to be bonded in place. This provides your smile with support, stability and improves dental health.
