Dental Crowns and Bridges in Lower Plenty

Dental Crowns

Do you have a tooth that’s badly damaged or has large, older fillings? A protective dental crown (cap) at St George’s Dental can help prolong the function of your tooth and prevent additional enamel wear.

Crowns are like protective shells or helmets placed over a tooth, covering it from every side. They disperse biting and chewing pressure, stabilising the weaker tooth structure underneath.

Dr Eva Tossoun (Dentist) will also use dental crowns to top off individual dental implants when replacing missing teeth.

What to Expect

Placing a dental crown requires two visits because the restoration is made at an offsite lab. Your tooth will be thoroughly numbed and you should only feel a small amount of pressure as it’s reshaped and prepared for a crown to fit over it. After your tooth is prepped, we’ll fit you with a temporary crown while the porcelain one is designed by hand. It will be ready to install about two weeks later.

Dental Bridges

If you have a missing tooth, dental bridges are a traditional and predictable option for filling in that open space. Depending on how many teeth are missing and the health of the ones adjacent to it, a typical bridge will rest over the teeth on either side of the missing one. There are also ‘Maryland’ bridge designs that only require one tooth for support.

Bridge procedures require two visits, as they are fitted and designed similar to how crowns are made.

Caring for a dental bridge takes a little extra effort, as you’ll need to clean under the restoration with floss or a water flosser each day.
