Crowns and Bridges at Centro Dental
Damaged or missing teeth can take a toll on your oral health and your self-esteem. The team at Centro Dental provides solutions that will help you smile again. The crowns and bridges offered at our practice will restore the appearance and function of your teeth. Made of the highest quality materials in our Australian laboratory, your restoration will fit you perfectly.
Rebuild Your Smile With a Dental Crown
A dental crown is a cap that goes over an existing tooth. Your natural teeth can become damaged in a variety of ways:
- Large, older fillings that leak or crack
- Extensive decay
- Trauma from clenching, grinding or an accident
A crown is appropriate to address these needs. It can also be placed over a dental implant to complete the procedure.
Once we’ve determined that a crown is suitable for your situation, we’ll take impressions to design your crown. We’ll discuss which material is most appropriate for your case, then have our lab custom-create it to our specifications. You’ll return for a follow-up to have the crown cemented into place, giving your tooth greater stability.
Filling a Gap With a Dental Bridge
One missing tooth can affect your confidence level and your ability to eat the foods you love or speak clearly. Several missing teeth can have an even bigger impact on your life. A dental bridge is a cost-effective solution to replacing one tooth or multiple teeth. It’s made up of dental crowns that are affixed to teeth on either side of the gap with a fake tooth or teeth suspended into the open space. A dental bridge is a permanent restoration that isn’t removed and can be treated just like regular teeth.
After we’ve determined that a bridge is suitable for you, we’ll take impressions and send them to our laboratory, where your bridge is created. When your bridge is sent back to our practice, you’ll return to have it fitted.
