Dental crowns and bridges are used to strengthen teeth damaged by decay or trauma, or to replace teeth that are missing.
The benefits of treatment include restoring your ability to eat normally, and a bridge will ensure your remaining teeth will not move out of position. A bridge helps to distribute the forces created during biting and chewing more evenly throughout all your teeth, protecting your natural teeth from excessive wear and tear.
Dental crowns cover up the entire tooth, right down to the gum line, protecting the tooth from any further damage and completely sealing it so bacteria cannot get into the tooth.
Banyule Dental Greensborough will recommend a dental crown in the following situations:
Our dentist in Greensborough will recommend a dental bridge to restore teeth that are missing completely.
A bridge is supported by crowns that cover up the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth and which are attached to the replacement tooth which is called a pontic.
Our dental crowns and bridges can be made from a variety of materials. These include metal alloys which can be covered up with high quality porcelains to create a natural appearance.
Our most advanced crowns and bridges are entirely metal-free, consisting of an extremely strong ceramic material that looks incredibly life-like. These restorations are recommended if you wish to obtain the best aesthetic results and are particularly good for replacing or restoring teeth right in the front of the mouth.
You will normally need several appointments with our Greensborough dentist in order to complete treatment and the process normally takes several weeks as each restoration is custom-made in our dental laboratory.
