Crowns and Bridges

close up of dental crownA dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that goes over an existing tooth. It is shaped and coloured to blend in with your smile. Our dental crowns in Mount Waverley, VIC are made from quality materials, and our dentist pays attention to the details.

Common Reasons for Dental Crowns

Reasons you may need a tooth crown:

  • Root canal or tooth trauma
  • Concealment of tooth flaws and discolouration
  • Replacement tooth following dental implant placement
  • Support for a dental bridge

A root infection or tooth trauma can weaken your tooth. A dental crown in Mount Waverley, VIC creates a buffer between your natural tooth and your bite to prevent breakage and tooth loss.

A dental crown also conceals tooth flaws like chips, cracks, discolouration and minor shape issues.

Following dental implant placement, a dental crown takes the place of your missing tooth by topping your implant.

A dental crown supports a dental bridge by capping healthy teeth on either side of a smile gap and allowing restoration teeth—fitted between the crowns—to complete your smile.
