CROWNS, BRIDGES & VENEERS

CROWNS

Perhaps you have a large filling, a cracked tooth, or have had a root canal treatment. Maybe your tooth is discoloured and you want to improve its appearance, or you took a bite on an olive pip a few months ago and the tooth has never felt the same. It’s time to consider a crown!

Crowns are full-coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too damaged to be corrected with a traditional filling. A good way to think of a crown is like a helmet for your tooth that protects it from the stresses of day to day life. When you receive a crown, you will notice it effectively improves your tooth condition by:

– Improving tooth aesthetics
– Relieving pain from any damage or fractures
– Helping strengthen a heavily-restored tooth to prevent future fracture
– Restoring loss of tooth structure from heavy grinding.

BRIDGES

If you’ve lost a tooth but aren’t able to have a dental implant, a bridge may be the treatment for you!

Another way to replace lost teeth is to create a bridge consisting of one or multiple crowns spanning the gap between remaining teeth. This semi-permanent fixture is typically made of porcelain over metal, and fits seamlessly over existing teeth. Bridges can solve the same problems as implants, and are a great alternative option.

A few appointments at Subiaco Square Dental are typically required for adjustments and fittings, with a final appointment to have the bridge cemented permanently. With proper care, a bridge can last for years.

Porcelain Veneers

Don’t settle for a smile that doesn’t make you feel amazing! Porcelain Veneers can change the colour, shape and length of your teeth and completely transform your smile.

Porcelain veneers are custom made shells of medical grade ceramic that are designed to cover the front surface of a tooth, to approve the overall aesthetics and shape. Veneers are used for a variety of reasons, including correction of tooth position, shape, and colour.

What to expect

Your tooth will be meticulously shaped and prepared for the crown, bridge, or veneer to fit over it.

Moulds will be taken of your top and bottom teeth and sent to a professional dental laboratory for fabrication of your custom crown/bridge/veneer. A temporary crown/bridge/veneer will be fitted to your tooth until the permanent product is ready.

Your permanent crown/bridge/veneer is normally returned within one week of your tooth preparation, at which stage you return for a second appointment in which the permanent crown/bridge/veneer is fitted.
