Crowns and Bridges

Reduce tooth decay or trauma with dental crowns and bridges.

Long Lasting Results

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth shaped helmet or cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength and improve its appearance.

The crown, when cemented into place, fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. With expert preparation and skilled application, a crown can be a highly effective dental treatment for damaged or cracked teeth and give great looking and long-lasting results.

Lasting Benefits

Why is a dental crown needed?

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  • To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of an already cracked tooth or damaged tooth
  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of teeth left
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To make a cosmetic modification

Avoid The Risk

Dental crown can help

Dental crowns may also be required to:

  • Save a tooth that has been so damaged by decay that it can’t support a filling.
  • Protect the teeth of a child at high risk for tooth decay, especially when a child has difficulty keeping up with daily oral hygiene.
  • Decrease the frequency of general anesthesia for children unable because of age, behaviour, or medical history to fully cooperate with the requirements of proper dental care.

In such cases, a paediatric dentist is likely to recommend a stainless steel crown.

Performed by Experts

What is involved in getting a dental crown?

The crown procedure starts with preparing the tooth to fit the crown. The preparation may involve moulds, x-rays, and shaping the current tooth. You may be fitted with a temporary crown while your final crown (a permanent natural tooth coloured crown) is being prepared.

Permanent crowns can be made from stainless steel, metal (such as gold or other metal alloys), porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic. Your dentist will help you understand the differences between metal crowns and ceramic crowns and choose the best option for you.

Your permanent crown will be professionally crafted to complement your natural teeth. Our dental clinic only uses premium Australian laboratories to make you the best crowns for the best longevity. By using a quality Australian dental lab to make your crown we can ensure the best looking and best lasting results for you.

Your dental crown will then be expertly fitted to look and function like a natural tooth. In addition to giving you a great smile, a crown can play a very important role with your oral health and maintaining good oral hygiene.
