Dental Crowns and Bridges – A Well Trodden Path To A Great Smile
Dental crowns and bridges have been successfully used for many years to strengthen, replace and protect damaged, broken, or missing teeth. Even today, they are still an excellent and affordable way of restoring your smile. Thankfully, modern-day bridges and dental crowns in Melbourne are far more lifelike than their older counterparts and as such, it can be hard to tell the difference between your natural and replacement teeth.
Here at Supreme Dental Cranbourne, we use only the very best dental crowns and bridges fabricated to meet your exacting requirements. Typically they’re made from either ceramic or porcelain fused to metal (PFM), but can also be fashioned from gold and base metal alloys. Whatever the material, dental crowns can be used to help with a variety of problems including:
• Restoring strength to any tooth weakened over time
• Covering up any cracks, chips, flaws, or general weakness which has occurred after trauma
• Repairing any erosion caused by decay and/or cavities
• Protecting a tooth after root canal treatment
In addition, dental crowns in Melbourne are often used for aesthetic reasons to cover up blemishes or problematic ingrained staining to achieve a better seamless smile.
Dental Bridges – Bridging the gap to a perfect smile
Unlike dental crowns which fit over an existing tooth, bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A framework supports a centralised crown or crowns which ‘bridges’ the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. The framework is anchored to adjacent natural teeth which are shaped to support it. Just as with our dental crowns in Melbourne, a bridge is custom made to your mouth’s contours, to ensure the very best fit and bite. Dental bridges are a less invasive, non-surgical alternative to dental implants and despite the growing popularity of implant-based restorations, many people still prefer to opt for a dental bridge. So if you are in a dilemma about how best to treat your dental problems and need to discuss your options, then feel free to book a no-obligation consultation with the Supreme Dental team.
