Natural looking, pleasing and long lasting dental crowns (or tooth caps) are a fantastic way to complete and brighten your smile. The dentists at our local Adelaide dental clinic are experts in creating crowns that match the shape and colour of your tooth perfectly, so the result is as natural as it can be.
Crowns restore the tooth’s strength
As well as enhancing your appearance, crowns restore the tooth’s strength, so it is effectively brand new in appearance and function.
A dental bridge is anchored by two supporting teeth on either side, so the new tooth or teeth are snugly fitted to the shape of your mouth for a perfectly natural appearance.
When you make an appointment to see whether a crown or bridge is the right solution for you, your local dentist will explain the whole procedure to you, including the different materials we may use and why, what it will involve and how much it will cost.
Dental crown is a high strength metal, ceramic or ceramic fused to metal restoration made in the dental laboratory that is bonded over the prepared tooth to restore its form, function and aesthetics.
Conventional fixed bridge is a high strength metal, ceramic or ceramic fused to metal restoration made in the dental laboratory that is used to replace a missing tooth with an artificial tooth “pontic” that is connected to the adjacent prepared teeth via crown retainers.
For teeth that have been severely weakened, but yet to be rendered unrestorable by dental decay, repeated tooth fillings (restorations), tooth wear and traumatic fracture, crown and bridgework may serve as suitable treatment options.
Resin bonded bridge is a high strength restoration made in the dental laboratory that is used to replace a missing tooth by a pontic that is connected to the adjacent tooth via a metal wing retainer.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown fits over an existing tooth which has become weakened by decay or damage, and is available in gold or porcelain. Once fitted, they strengthen your tooth and, if you choose porcelain veneers, the crown will be colour-matched with the rest of your teeth so it will go unnoticed.
Improve Your Smile With Dental Crowns
Dental crowns have proven to be one of the most long lasting types of dental treatment, and with new technology have also evolved into a popular cosmetic option for our patients. With our dental clinic’s services, we can make crowns to improve a patient’s smiles in just one visit.
Quality dental crowns
Aside from cosmetic purposes, crowns are generally fitted when the tooth in question is damaged too much to benefit from a normal filling. Whether your teeth are badly decayed, have suffered trauma, or have previously been heavily filled, there are various reasons why a crown might be the best choice for you.
