Crowns and bridges

Crowns and Bridges Melbourne

There are many ways to restore the function and appearance of damaged teeth, including dental crowns and bridges. A crown is a specially designed tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Dental crowns in Tarneit are typically made from ceramic, porcelain, or precious metals such as gold alloy. A dental bridge is an additional treatment that’s attached to two adjacent crowns in order to replace a single missing tooth. Both dental crowns and bridges are cemented to your natural teeth or implants for support.

When are crowns and bridges used?

Crowns are generally applied when teeth have been broken, damaged, or discoloured, and can also be used after extensive root canal treatment. Dental bridges in Tarneit are also used to cover or support a tooth with a large filling, especially when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to cover.

Crowns are applied over the broken part of the tooth, with the cap structure designed to match the surrounding teeth in a way that’s seamless and natural.

A bridge is typically used to replace a missing tooth when the patient does not want or cannot support a dental implant. Dental crowns in Tarneit are also recommended by dentists for cosmetic modifications.

Metal crowns: They are usually made of gold or silver alloy. They are strong and effective, but their metal look makes them apt only for back teeth.

Porcelain fused metal crowns: For these types of crowns, dentists use porcelain material to cover metal crowns.

All porcelain crowns: They are made of porcelain material completely and may appear natural, but they are not as strong as porcelain fused crowns.

Resin crowns: They are made of resin material and are highly effective, although they are prone to fractures and may wear out eventually.

Crown treatments

A crown treatment normally takes place over one or two appointments, with the first session including a full examination prior to the placement of a temporary crown. While ceramic crowns can often be designed and placed in a single sitting, we need a little time to produce custom porcelain crowns before they’re fitted at a second appointment.

Crowns look and function much like normal teeth, with regular cleaning and flossing needed to keep them in tip-top shape. Our team of dentists is keen on customising dental crowns in Tarneit to provide effective, long-lasting and most-fitting dental care to our patients.
