If you would like to speak to a dentist on the Sunshine Coast about either new dental crowns or bridges, or about repairing existing crowns, then contact us for an appointment or advice.
Through the skilled application of dental crowns and bridges, our dentists can strengthen and restore your teeth. This can increase your confidence and give you more reasons to smile.
A dental crown (also known as a cap) is a permanent and natural-looking casing that completely covers the tooth. The benefits of crowns include :
- Strengthening teeth, including root canal treated teeth
- Restoring heavily filled or worn teeth
- Improving the appearance of discoloured or poorly shaped teeth
- Protecting cracked teeth
- Accommodating the attachment of a fixed bridge
A dental bridge is crafted to look like your normal teeth and is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges connect to the teeth on either side of the space by crowning these teeth, effectively linking them together. Thus a bridge removes the need for a denture, but only if the surrounding teeth are strong enough to support it.
Three appointments are usually required to assess, measure and fit a new crown or bridge.
We guarantee our crowns and bridges for five years, provided you attend regular checkup and hygiene appointments with us at least once every calendar year. Then, in the extremely unlikely event of a crown breaking, we will repair or replace it as appropriate at no charge to you.
