Bridges & Crowns

Crowns (also known as caps) cover the entire tooth, restoring teeth to the original size and shape. Porcelain crowns that are the same colour as the tooth are the most common these days.

Why You Need Dental Crowns

Dental crowns give you the benefit of protecting your tooth and its structure in a way that is not possible with some other treatments. For example, fillings may not provide adequate protection.

Dental crowns, especially when using porcelain, are durable and strong. It is highly likely that they will last you for many years without the need for treatment or replacement.

In addition, the porcelain variety is also aesthetically superior. They match your original tooth colour completely, meaning that the material blends with adjacent teeth. No one will be able to tell that they are not your original teeth.

Dental crowns may be suitable in the following circumstances:

  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • Decayed Teeth
  • You want to improve your smile
  • Fractured fillings 

Porcelain Dental Bridge Adelaide

Dental bridges are fixed and permanent solutions to missing teeth, giving you back your smile as well as normal teeth function. Dental bridges are suitable in a variety of scenarios and give distinct advantages that make them worth your consideration.

Why You Need a Dental Bridge

First of all, your smile will be restored to what it once was by filling in the gaps of missing teeth. You won’t have to worry about hiding your smile and you will once again be able to show your teeth with pride. The confidence you gain can be huge.

In addition, dental bridges do plenty of behind the scenes work. They maintain the shape of your face by supporting surrounding muscles and keep adjacent teeth in their proper positions. Preventing the drifting of teeth into empty spaces can avoid trouble in the future.

Furthermore, dental bridges will restore your capacity to chew and speak properly. Having several teeth missing can have a severe impact on these two functions.

Dental bridges may be suitable in the following scenarios:

  • Fill space due to missing teeth
  • Facial shape is negatively impacted due to missing teeth
  • Prevent adjacent teeth from moving into empty spaces
  • Improve your smile
  • Your partial dentures are not working for you

Further Information

Both dental crowns and bridges will require multiple appointments. During your initial consultation, we will take impressions of your teeth in order to construct the customized materials for your procedure.

On your next visit, we will apply the bridge or crown to your mouth. It’s possible that they will only be made permanent on a subsequent visit, depending on your situation. It’s important that you maintain proper oral hygiene in order to extend the lifetime of your bridges & crowns.
