Dental Crowns Improve Strength and Appearance to Broken and Decayed Teeth.

Did you break a tooth? Is a large cavity forcing you to chew your food on the other side of your mouth? A dental crown is a restoration that preserves the weaker, internal portion of a tooth that has large areas of decay or fractures. Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth above the gumline, improving not only the strength but also the appearance of the tooth so that it can once again chew as normal.

Bridges are a permanent fixture used to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. The bridge consists of an artificial tooth (or teeth) that is cemented onto the two natural anchor teeth on either side of the gap. These anchor teeth act as the support structures to hold the replacement tooth/teeth in place. Unlike dentures, bridges are permanently fixed. This means patients can confidently and comfortably chew, speak, and laugh without fear of their bridge falling out. Bridges are often more affordable than other tooth replacement methods such as dental implants.

You can be confident that all our crown and bridgework is fabricated on the Central Coast or in Sydney, using TGA approved materials and strictly follow standardised procedures.
