Crown and Bridge

Greenvale Crowns and Bridges

Greenvale Dental Group believe in quality workmanship and products. Our patients can be assured all our ceramic work is manufactured by Australian technicians and laboratories. We work closely with our technicians, and have forged long standing relationships, so our patients benefit from expertly designed, fitted and colour matched product.

We will never send our laboratory work “off-shore” to cut costs. We insist on products made with quality materials in infection controlled environments; each and every time.


Dental crowns (often referred to as caps), are used to improve strength, form, appearance and function of the tooth. Crowns can be made from porcelain or ceramic and can assist to:

  • replace large fillings where there isn't enough of the natural tooth remaining;
  • protect a weak tooth from fracturing;
  • assist when a bridge is attached;
  • cover dental implants;
  • cover discoloured or a poorly shaped tooth;
  • cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment.

What is the procedure?

In majority of cases, to make and fit a crown, will require two appointments:

1.An impression will be taken which allows for the crown to be fabricated at the laboratory. Our highly trained cosmetic dentists, will ensure of the tooth’s fit, shape and colour match the crown with the surrounding teeth. The tooth is prepared and a temporary crown will be placed;

2.The permanent crown will be fitted approximately 2 weeks later.


A bridge may be recommended if one or more teeth is missing. A bridge is an affordable alternative to dental implants or for those patients who are not a suitable candidate.

Why would I need a Bridge?

Gaps by missing teeth, over time, cause the surrounding teeth to rotate and shift into the empty spaces which can lead to other dental and health issues. A bridge spans the space where the teeth are missing and is cemented to the surrounding teeth. A replacement tooth called a pontic is attached to the crown.

Bridges can be made from a choice of materials. Our practitioners will assess your current condition and advise the best material based on function and/or aesthetics.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the closest restoration you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They are posts made of titanium, surgically positioned into the bone beneath the gum. A porcelain crown is then inserted onto the post to create your new, natural looking tooth.

Although saving natural teeth is our priority, for some patients this isn’t an option, and they may require professionally fitted dentures (or false teeth). Dentures are designed to look and feel like natural teeth and are made from a combination of metal and acrylic materials.
