Bridges & Dental Crowns Gold Coast
If you have weakened, chipped or otherwise damaged teeth, the dentists at Oasis Dental Studio may be able to use crowns or bridges to restore your smile to its original glory and regain your dental health.
Porcelain crowns and bridges look entirely natural and will blend in with your other teeth seamlessly. This means it won’t be obvious to others that you have had any dental work done!
Porcelain crowns are strong, long-lasting ceramic restorations which cover a decayed, broken or brittle tooth in order to strengthen and preserve the tooth. The crown is placed over the damaged tooth like a cap or sleeve and is able to restore function to your tooth. Once a tooth is strengthened by a crown, it will have full function restored. This means no more painful biting, chewing or speaking. Your new crown will also aesthetically enhance your smile as it will replace the outward appearance of your damaged tooth which may have unsightly cracks, chips or discolouration from decay.
Crowns can be used in conjunction with other restorative treatments or when a filling is not suitable due to weakness of the tooth structure. Adding a crown may reduce the need to remove a highly damaged tooth as it is able to add the strength and durability to a once weakened tooth.
Crowns are a very common treatment and we have systems in place to make the treatment as simple, effective and as painless as possible. The crowns are carefully constructed to match the opposing tooth aesthetics and height to ensure no change in your bite.
If you require treatment for the loss of one or more teeth, we recommend either dental implants or a bridge. A bridge can fill a gap of up to four teeth if there are healthy natural teeth flanking the gap. The bridge will replace your missing teeth and will appear entirely natural. A bridge is made of porcelain and aims to replace missing teeth in the most natural way possible.
The bridge will be anchored to the healthy teeth either side of the gap to ensure strength and stability. We often recommend dental bridges over dentures as they are generally more secure and comfortable for the wearer. Alternatively, you may wish to consider dental implants.
