Crowns and Bridges at Melbourne St Dental Studio

Do you have a tooth that has been damaged by decay, trauma or has worn down over time? Are you missing teeth and wonder what it would be like to replace them? Crowns and bridges are two simple solutions offered at Melbourne St Dental Studio to help you regain the look and function of your smile.

Dental crowns are also called caps. They go over an existing tooth to give it greater strength after it’s been compromised due to a root canal, old filling, decay or has been ground down from bruxism or clenching. A crown can also be affixed to a titanium implant to complete the process of receiving a dental implant.

If you have a space where a single tooth is missing or where multiple teeth used to be, a dental bridge is a fixed-in-place and cost-effective option. It involves a row of crowns, with the ones on the end affixed to the teeth that are on either side of the space. Another crown or grouping of crowns is then suspended into the gap and cemented into place.

Frequently Asked Questions

What materials are available for crowns and bridges?

We can custom-create your crown or bridge in a variety of materials to suit your needs. The most commonly used today is porcelain, though we can discuss which is most appropriate for your situation.

Will anyone know I have a crown or bridge?

No. They are designed to look just like natural teeth, with the shape and colour fitting perfectly into your smile.

How many appointments are required?

There are two appointments necessary. At the first, we’ll gather information such as impressions and send it to our laboratory. There, your crown or bridge will be custom-fabricated for you. After it’s sent back to our clinic, you’ll have a follow-up visit where it’s fitted to you.
