Do you have cracked, damaged or missing teeth? Crowns and bridges can help you…
Sometimes we can't repair a tooth. A crown is needed when your tooth has been extensively filled or it is cracked or broken, or when there is not enough tooth structure left for a traditional filling or an inlay or onlay.
Crowns and bridges are cosmetic techniques to restore the appearance of your teeth even where the original tooth or teeth are badly damaged – or even missing.
Clients of A1 dental care Belconnen are directly involved in the design process when improving their smile with porcelain crowns, thus ensuring total satisfaction with the end result.
A crown is a strong porcelain sleeve that fits perfectly over any remaining tooth structure, and ensures function and stability. They are generally made from porcelain or gold alloys and strengthen and protect your teeth from further decay.
Where a tooth is missing, a replacement tooth can be attached to two crowns, which are then attached to the adjacent teeth. Because the open space is bridged together this is called a Bridge.
Bridges are a strong and stable alternative to dentures, and are an ideal way to replace a missing tooth and to restore full function and aesthetics. A bridge can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth. To construct a dental bridge, we take an impression of your teeth and send it to our laboratory and they are precision crafted by a qualified dental technician.
Benefits of Crowns and Bridges:
- Durable and resilient
- Prevent further teeth form shifting
- Improve your ability to chew and speak
- Maintain facial structure
- Restore smile confidence
Crowns and bridges may be used in conjunction with each other to restore your smile.
