Crowns and Bridges

As you get older, your teeth will increasingly require dental restorations to maintain a high level of oral hygiene. Crowns and Bridges are dental restorations options which are available to consider.

Crown

Crowns are a type of restoration which completely cap or encircle a tooth or dental implant. A Crown is often needed when a large cavity is threatening the ongoing health of the tooth and they are used to improve the strength, form, function and appearance of a tooth.

At Tullamarine Complete Dental, our professional team will advise you on the best option to restore your tooth. There are a variety of materials which can be used to make Crowns, such as Porcelain or Metal, each having a set of pros and cons. We’ll help you to reach a decision that is both affordable and will ensure the restoration lasts for as long as possible.

The most common method used to crown a tooth involves taking a dental impression. This impression can be used to fabricate the crown which can then be inserted at a subsequent appointment. This indirect method of tooth restoration will require the use of stronger restorative materials that would not be possible to complete inside the mouth.

Bridge

bridge is several crowns joined together to replace a missing tooth where the teeth adjacent to the space would benefit from the protection of crowns.
