Crowns are custom made caps used to treat teeth that have fractures, cracks, extensive decay, or even certain malformations and stains. A crown is often the best option to strengthen a tooth, and usually takes two visits to attach. On your first visit, your dentist will take an impression (mould) or your affected tooth, and use a temporary crown to protect it while you wait for your next visit.
During this time, your tooth’s impression is sent to a local Australian lab, where it will be fabricated with the highest care and quality, and made in the same colour as the rest of your teeth. Your permanent crown will be cemented onto your tooth during your second visit – and you will then be able to eat, brush, and floss as per normal.
Bridges are a type of dental prostheses that help to fill the space left by a missing tooth. There are a variety of ways for a dental bridge to be applied, but they are typically used to cover the gap of a missing tooth by attaching the prostheses to either side of the gap through the use of crowns. Like crowns, dental bridges take about two visits for a mould to be made, bridges to be fabricated, and then cemented. All our bridges are made in local Australian labs with the highest care and quality.
