Dental Crowns in 3149
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers an existing tooth, and it has a variety of different uses. At Mount Waverley Smiles, our dentists rely on local labs to create quality dental crowns just for you.
A dental crown can shore up a fragile tooth that has had a root infection or been subjected to trauma, for example. The tooth crown absorbs the bite force and may help prevent breakage or loss. Additionally, a tooth crown can conceal the following:
- Tooth cracks
- Tooth chips
- Stubborn tooth stains
- Misshapen tooth
- Small gaps between teeth
A dental crown is also the cap that completes a dental implant, and two crowns together can support a dental bridge.
Dr Rhee and Dr Huynh work hard to create or finish crowns that fit your smile and blend in with your natural teeth.
A Dental Bridge to Complete Your Smile
If you have missing teeth, especially a row of missing teeth, a dental bridge acts as a placeholder to fill in your smile and help prevent your natural teeth from shifting.
A dental bridge consists of artificial teeth suspended between two dental crowns. The dental crowns cap the teeth adjacent to your smile gap, allowing the restoration teeth to fill in the space. If adjacent teeth are not as strong as they could be, one of our Mount Waverley dentists may recommend a dental implant to secure your bridge.
A dental implant is a thin screw made of sturdy titanium. This screw is surgically implanted in your jawbone and fuses with the bone over a period of months, taking the place of your missing tooth’s root and, in this case, providing an anchor for your dental bridge in Mount Waverley, VIC.
Our dental bridge teeth in Mount Waverley are designed to look like natural teeth and blend in with your smile.
Caring for Crowns and Bridges
It’s important to maintain a good oral hygiene routine and see your dentist regularly. Remember, restorations will not prevent gum disease or dental infections, which may cause your crown or bridge to fail and compromise your natural teeth.
