Crowns, Bridges and Veneers

Redbank Dental Centre  >  Crowns, Bridges and Veneers

Crowns

There are many reasons why a tooth may be crowned. For example a dental crown is the ideal restoration for damaged, cracked, badly decayed or root treated teeth. If your tooth has a very large existing filling, your dentist may recommend a crown as there is minimal tooth structure remaining – i.e. the tooth may be very weak and likely to break at some point, possibly rendering it unsalvageable. Crowns are also placed over dental implants to restore function and aesthetics.

Dental crowns completely cover or ‘cap’ your tooth to restore its shape and function, improve appearance, and give strength.

What are Crowns made of? 
There are several different materials crowns can be made of, your dentist will discuss these options with you and recommend which material would be best for your individual case – the difference in cost is minimal; so although we will discuss this with you, it is unlikely to be a deciding factor in choosing which material to use for your crown.

Crowns are commonly made from materials such as: Zirconia, Porcelain or Gold.

Veneers

Veneers are often the treatment of choice for those wanting cosmetic dental work. They are tooth coloured facings with natural textures designed to cover the front surface of teeth, hiding any flaws and improving the appearance of your teeth. Porcelain veneers, also called Dental Veneers, are custom made to your teeth and will look and function like natural tooth enamel.

Veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth to alter the aesthetics of your teeth, including: colour, shape, size and length.

Bridges

Dental Bridges are often used to replace one or more missing teeth. In order to have a dental bridge you need at least one tooth or implant crowned to serve as an “anchor”, usually however you have two – one tooth or implant either side of the “space” or “gap” and then another crown suspended between them – just like a bridge over a river! Bridges are often made of Porcelain fused to metal (this has a strong metal base with tooth coloured porcelain covering it), however all ceramic or all gold bridges can also be made. Your dentist will discuss the best option for your individual case.
