Dental Crowns & Bridges
What are dental crowns?
Are you looking for crowns or bridges in Melbourne’s South-East? Located in St Kilda, our clinic is a trusted and experienced general and cosmetic dentistry that can help restore your smile and boost your oral health.
If you have damaged, decaying, missing or weak teeth, crowns or bridges may be the best solution.
Dental crowns are a prosthesis that sit over a damaged tooth and are designed to mimic your own teeth. Dental crowns appear completely natural as they are customisable to your individual requirements.
Crowns – often known as caps – typically, are constructed from porcelain or ceramic. Crowns are designed to strengthen weak or damaged teeth by reinforcement and protect them from further damage. Crowns are beneficial particularly after a filling or a root canal.
Zirconia is another high-quality material that is often used to fabricate crowns. Capital Dental Care can help you choose the most appropriate type of crown based on your specific circumstances.
The procedure is conducted over two visits. At the first visit, we prepare the tooth for a crown and at the second visit, we fix the crown that has been carefully made by the best technicians in the town that we have been working closely with for the past many years. There is absolutely no compromise on the quality of crowns that we deliver to our patients.
Why would you need a crown?
There are many circumstances in which you may require a customised crown. The following are some of the most common situations:
- Protection of a weak or decaying tooth from fracturing or breaking
- Restoration of a broken tooth or a severely worn tooth
- To attach a bridge
- Conceal a discoloured or misshaped tooth
- Rectify a chipped or fractured tooth
- Covering a tooth after a root canal or filling
- Covering a dental implant
Dental crowns can be a separate procedure or work in conjunction with dental bridges.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are an oral prosthetic device that is used to replace teeth. Bridges attach to your adjacent teeth or utilise crowns for support on each side of the missing tooth.
What are the benefits of dental bridges?
- Improve your smile
- Restore both form and function of your teeth
- Restore the proper shape of your face
- Stops remaining teeth from changing positions in your mouth.
