Crowns and Bridges

Smile well and restore function with crowns and bridges

Crowns and Bridges in Bacchus Marsh

Crowns and bridges are artificial teeth that look and feel like the real thing. While crowns can be great alternatives to broken, weakened, excessively filled, or unsightly natural teeth, dental bridges are one of the possible solutions for missing tooth or teeth.

At Maddingley Dental Aesthetic & Implant Centre, our porcelain crowns and bridges are both a colour and functional match to natural teeth. Strengthen your biting power and protect weaker teeth with crowns. Restore your function and appearance with dental bridges for missing tooth/teeth that are almost indistinguishable from the real thing.

Affordable Options for Restoring your Natural Smile

Dental crowns and dental bridges are two common solutions for decayed or missing teeth. A dental crown is a cap-like covering that fits over an existing tooth or dental implant to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance.

Dental bridges are a common dental procedure used to replace missing teeth. If you have lost one or more of your teeth, due to an accident, periodontal disease or any other reason, then you may be a candidate for a dental bridge.

Why Would you opt for a Dental Bridge?

Missing teeth can have a major impact on your smile, confidence and overall health. A dental bridge is an effective solution to replace missing teeth and maintain facial structure. It can be used when there are several teeth missing in a row or if a single tooth has been lost.

The bridge utilises adjacent teeth as anchors to hold the replacement tooth in place. Having a bridge not only solves aesthetic problems such as spaces between your teeth, it also prevents remaining healthy teeth from shifting and causing bite alignment issues. A dental bridge is also beneficial in terms of overall health, since gaps between the teeth can lead to gum disease. The cost of a dental bridge can vary, depending on different factors such as the type of material used, severity of damage, number of dental bridges required, and more.

Completed in stages according to your individual needs, with healing time in between, the steps include:

Step 1

Our Bacchus Marsh dentist will examine the patient’s mouth and take X-rays of the area where the bridge will be placed.

Step 2

The dentist will prepare the abutment teeth, by filing down their enamel and shaping them to accommodate a dental crown.

Step 3

An impression of the abutment teeth is taken and sent to a lab so that a custom-made dental bridge can be fabricated.

Step 4

While waiting for the bridge to be fabricated, the dentist may place temporary restorations on the abutment teeth to protect them until the bridge arrives from the lab.

Step 5

When ready, the bridge is inserted in the patient’s mouth and any adjustments are made in order to ensure that it fits properly and comfortably with no discomfort or interference with eating and speaking ability.

Step 6

Finally, the dental bridge is cemented in place so that it won’t move around when eating or speaking, ensuring optimal function for years to come.

Different Bridges for Unique Needs

Even where there has been loss of tooth from gum disease, there are types of Dental Bridges to meet your needs:

A CANTILEVER BRIDGE

A cantilever dental bridge could be a good solution for when you have lost a tooth, but there is only one remaining tooth or healthy tooth on one side of the gap. In such cases, your dentist would fit a pontic in the gap and then anchor it to the healthy or remaining tooth.

TRADITIONAL DENTAL BRIDGES

The most common dental bridge that is used to replace one or more missing teeth consists of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, with a false tooth attached between them. These are usually made of porcelain fused to metal or all-porcelain and can be very strong and long lasting. Bridges are particularly suitable for those people who need to replace one or more missing teeth.

AN IMPLANT SUPPORTED BRIDGE

The bridge consists of a false tooth held in place by two titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. This procedure helps restore the aesthetic look of your smile while also preserving oral function and stability. Furthermore, this treatment can be beneficial for those suffering from malocclusion or a weakened jaw due to disease or injury.

Cost Effective Dental Crowns

Also called a cap, a Dental Crown is custom made to cover a tooth that’s misshapen, cracked, badly discoloured, root-canal treated, or weakened by a cavity or decay. They are made from either porcelain or ceramic materials that mimic natural tooth’s colour. Crowns offer excellent protection of the existing tooth and can be precisely matched to surrounding teeth for seamless restoration of appearance and function. With good oral care, your crown will last up to 15 years.

At Maddingley Dental Aesthetic & Implant Centre, majority of our patients needing dental crown or crowns are those with heavily filled teeth as crowns protect the treated tooth and avoid filling’s erosion over the period. Our dentists will determine if you need a dental crown in Bacchus Marsh.

Our Simple Dental Crwon Procedure is Reason to Smile

For cost of Dental Crowns in Bacchus Marsh, book a consult with our conveniently located Bacchus Marsh clinic at Maddingley Shopping Village. We’ll conduct a thorough assessment of your oral health to advise whether Dental Crowns will be the most suitable and affordable solution for your needs.

To prepare your tooth for a crown, we remove some of the enamel to reduce it slightly in size before taking an impression to create your crown. A temporary crown is then fitted until your custom-made crowns are ready to be secured, which will generally take between 1-2 weeks.

Once your crown is fitted, we recommend avoiding hard foods for a few days to allow time to heal but you should otherwise brush and floss as usual.
