If you have damaged teeth, you might need a dental procedure such as a crown or bridge from Greenvale Dental Group. Installing a crown or bridge is a process used to replace a damaged tooth without disrupting the functionality of your mouth.
Crowns and bridges operate on the same principle as prosthetics, being an artificial replica that serves the same purpose as regular teeth. Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges do not need to be removed. Once they have been placed, a crown and/or bridge becomes a permanent fixture of your mouth.
Our dental crowns (a.k.a. caps) are the result of quality porcelain and ceramic workmanship based on our close relationships with Australian technicians and laboratories. The end result is an expertly designed, fitted and colour matched crown that will sit perfectly with your teeth.
A crown can serve multiple dental purposes, including:
Not getting a crown when you need it means leaving your damaged teeth vulnerable; whether it’s to more damage, or even to infection. If your dentist recommends that you get a crown for your damaged teeth, they likely have a very good reason for it. Make sure you give your teeth the best chance at longevity with a high quality crown and bridge from Greenvale Dental Group.
If you’re missing multiple teeth, you should get a bridge from a quality dental practice. If you don’t, you risk incurring other dental health complications, as gaps by missing teeth, over time, cause the surrounding teeth to rotate and shift into the empty spaces.
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.
Greenvale Dental Group has a team of highly qualified and experienced dental professionals, led by principal dentist Dr. Soraya Eakins. We have aided all kinds of dental patients in replacing their broken teeth, leaving them with smiles that are as good as new – if not better!
One of the major benefits of crowns and bridges is that they are a viable alternative to dental implants. Talk to your dentist, and they will make sure that you receive the solution you need, whether it’s an implant or a crown and/or bridge.
The majority of crown and bridge dental procedures require two appointments.
Appointment One – The dentist shapes and prepares the tooth for the fitting of the crown. An impression is then taken for the lab, so that they can fabricate the crown to the precise shape, size and colour required. A temporary crown is then made by the dentist on the spot to act as a placeholder for the next several weeks.
Appointment Two – Approximately two weeks later, the patient returns to have the permanent crown cemented into place.
