Went this afternoon for an appointment after not having been to the dentist since god-knows-when. The team booked me in at a time that suited me, were really easy to deal with, the process was simple and I was in and out (with a filling and an x-ray) within my hour lunch break. Dr James was really good and they made me feel comfortable and relaxed (even when I panicked over the big anaesthetic needle). The cost was really reasonable and I am definitely going to recommend to everyone.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is like a tooth-shaped cap that is used to cover a damaged tooth. They can be used to strengthen teeth and can also be used to cosmetically fix teeth. They can restore the function of your mouth so you can eat without worry and smile with confidence.

A crown may be used to cap a tooth that had a root canal treatment, add strength to a damaged tooth or is used over a dental implant. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, zirconia, gold or porcelain that is fused to metal.

Porcelain is the most popular material because the crown can be made to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth, so only you know it’s there. But not all patients want porcelain, so we provide gold and metal for those who choose, whether it is for cost or aesthetic reasons.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and crowns are part of the support structure. A dental bridge is a restorative fixture that is made up of two or more crowns used for anchoring along with replacement teeth in between them.

Sometimes called a dental prosthesis, a bridge is not removable and so considered a permanent fix for missing teeth. They are called bridges because they literally bridge a gap caused by missing teeth. Patients prefer them to other options like dentures because they are easy to take care of and feel more like regular teeth.

Strength and Structure

 
Dental crowns and bridges can help save teeth by protecting them and adding strong support. This allows you to continue proper function for chewing and eating the foods you enjoy. Some situations that benefit from a crown or bridge include:

Repair weak tooth from an old filling
Restore cracked or damaged tooth
Cap for dental implant
Restore worn tooth
Protect a tooth that had root canal treatment
Maintain chewing function of teeth
Maintain face shape

Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges

 
Oral health is important for many reasons besides aesthetic. In other words, crooked and missing teeth can cause numerous problems such as:

Increased risk for tooth decay
Increased risk of gum disease
Difficult to clean and maintain
Increased risk of pain and infection
Jawbone deterioration

While these problems can affect anyone, most cases can be treated as we restore the healthy function of your teeth. Our team here at Elevate Dental Richmond Melbourne can determine which treatment will best suit your needs and will discuss all options with you. Some reasons why the dentist would suggest a crown or bridge include the following:

R
Getting a crown or bridge are low-risk options
R
They look and feel like natural teeth
R
They are excellent solutions to protect damaged teeth
R
They can protect root canal treatment from reinfection
R
They can last 10 years or more, depending on care
Crowns are excellent options when you have one tooth that needs protection or restoration, while a dental bridge can restore and protect a series of teeth. Crowns and bridges can be supported by dental implants, which will further protect the jawbone from deterioration.

If you have missing teeth, come for a dental checkup so we can do a full evaluation with x-rays and scans to determine the best treatment. There is often more than one solution for most cases, and your dentist will go over each to find the one that fits your needs and your wallet.

Are There Any Risks?

 
As with any dental or medical procedure, there is a slight chance of risk. A dental crown, or a bridge that uses a crown, is used to treat, repair or restore a tooth that has already undergone damage. Because of this, there is a very slight chance the nerve of the tooth may die, because of a buildup of bacteria that caused the problem to begin with.

Our staff at Elevate Dental is experienced and skilled at treating a variety of dental problems, including identifying and treating infections. We know what to look for and will use our tech and tools to make sure we find hidden bacteria and decay so we can eliminate it. We understand how important it is to get this job done before we apply crowns and bridges, so we take extra care to ensure the treatment is thorough.

Caring for Dental Crowns and Bridges

 
Because modern crowns and bridges are designed to mimic your natural teeth, caring for them is much like caring for your own teeth. Your mouth can remain healthy and your dental restorations will last a long time with proper oral care. While your dentist will give you specific instructions on caring for your new dental crowns or bridge, here are some general guidelines you can follow:

Z
Brush twice a day, or according to your dentist’s instructions
Z
Floss according to dentist’s instructions
Z
Maintain a healthy diet for overall health
Z
Avoid smoking
Z
Avoid overuse of alcohol
Z
Do not bite hard objects like ice or pens
Z
Maintain regular dental checkups
Z
Get professional teeth cleaning at least once a year
When your dental work is complete, always pay attention to changes or discomfort. If you feel pain, looseness or your bite feels “off,” call your dentist for an appointment. If it feels like a dental emergency, we can bring you on the same day or the next to fix any problems as soon as possible.
