Dental Crowns and Bridges at

Bacchus Marsh, Melton & Ballan

 

Modern dentistry focuses on saving your teeth whenever possible, we strive to keep your smile as natural as possible. If your tooth is damaged, we can save what is left with a dental crown, and if you have missing teeth, we can bridge the gap with a dental bridge. These methods allow you to talk, eat and live with confidence knowing that your teeth will look great and stay in place, just like natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

 

A dental crown is a cover or cap that a dentist makes to fit over a tooth that is badly damaged. It is designed to restore the appearance of your natural tooth and allows you to eat with minimal discomfort. Crowns can protect what is left of the structure of your tooth and prevent further damage due to fracturing or breakage. Here are some scenarios that are suitable for dental crowns:

Restoring a broken tooth
Protection for weak or highly damaged teeth
Restoration of highly worn tooth
Covering for a dental implant
Support for a tooth with a large cavity
Cosmetic adjustment for misshapen or discoloured teeth
As part of a dental bridge

Dental crowns enhance the functionality of your teeth. In other words, if you have a worn or damaged tooth, it can lead to discomfort when you chew or talk. A dental crown will restore the original shape of your tooth so you can chew and talk with comfort and confidence. And you can choose natural-looking porcelain or make a fashion statement with a traditional gold crown.

Support Multiple Teeth with Dental Crowns

 

We want you to look and feel your best, so are ready to work with you to find the best options to save your teeth with a solution that works for you. Sometimes more than one tooth is damaged or in need of help, and that’s okay. Many people have multiple crowns to top their teeth, which is preferable over losing them. Even if you require up to 12 crowns, you will save the structure of the underlying teeth, which ensures that your gums and jawbone will remain healthy, too. And if you prefer crowns for aesthetic reasons, even with no tooth damage, our caring professionals will work with you to find the right solution, so you are happy with your choice for years to come.

Dental Bridges

 

Sometimes teeth cannot be saved, but there are options to replace them at an affordable price. A dental bridge may be the solution for you. A bridge is a fixed dental structure used as part of restoration and therapy. They are made up of the missing tooth and abutments, which are crowns that fit over the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth and used to anchor or support the bridge. You may hear your dentist refer to them as abutment teeth.

Bridges may be a better option than dental implants if there is loss of bone from gum disease or the surrounding teeth are not strong enough. Your dental professional can help find the right solution for your needs.

Is a Dental Bridge Right for Me?

 
Thanks to modern technology, there are different types of dental bridges for different scenarios. We take into consideration your oral health and structural integrity to find the right fit for you. There are a variety of bridge styles, designed for different needs. The following are the different types:

Traditional Bridge
These are small and lightweight and provide comfort by re-distributing your bite force across the bridge and your other teeth. These require well-fitted crowns to the abutment teeth.
Cantilever Bridge
These are used when only one tooth is available as the anchor or abutment tooth. They are commonly used for back molars and are good options for those who do not want a dental implant.
Maryland Bridge
These are a cost-effective solution that uses “wings” to secure the false tooth to the anchor teeth. This eliminates the need to remove enamel and fit a crown for abutment teeth, but require a strong foundation to secure it to.
Implant-Supported Bridge
This option is used when there are multiple teeth missing in a row. In this case, a dental implant will be placed as a root for each tooth then a dental bridge will be created to replace the multiple teeth, as opposed to one crown for each tooth.

Care for Your New Crown or Bridge

 

Once you invest in a new dental crown or bridge, we are certain you want it to last as long as possible. When taken care of properly through good oral hygiene, some fixtures may last a lifetime. Our professionals are ready to guide each patient for the proper care of their new dental work so that it fits their individual needs. But there are some general guidelines, such as:

Keep your teeth and gums healthy with brushing, twice a day
Floss according to the instructions your dentist provides
Rinse with a mouthwash recommended by your hygiene professional
Prevent damage to your new placements by not chewing on ice and other hard objects
See your dentist every 6 months for a checkup
If a bridge or crown feels loose or wobbly, call your dentist right away; the sooner it is looked at the easier the fix will be
