A crown is a cap or covering for a tooth. In Melbourne Dental Family, all ceramic crowns and bridges are available for increasing dramatic improvements in smile appearance.It is used when your tooth is discoloured, cracked or broken, heavily filled, or if fillings have been lost. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually not only will affect your appearance but also will result in a bad bite. Our dentists use their expertise and modern technology to match the new crown to the shape and colour of your existing teeth. We provide new materials and clinical methods to create invisible tooth restorations. We will help you to get beautiful, aesthetic and functional restorations with our extensive knowledge, training and experience.
A dental bridge is a ceramic structure, spanning the gap left by a missing or extracted tooth. A ceramic tooth (pontic) is fused between two or more porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth that serve as anchors. The anchor teeth are shaped to accommodate the crowns, and then a bridge is bonded securely over these teeth. Our dentist will take an impression or a digital scan of your mouth and then design a ceramic tooth to insert between the two existing crowned teeth. The pontic tooth and the crowns on either side are matched to the colour and the shape of your existing teeth. Of course, our dentist will help you to choose which one the best material of dental bridge for you based on based on its function, the location of the missing tooth, appearance and cost.
