Single visit Dental Crowns and Bridges Indooroopilly
Dental crowns are a custom-made restoration which fits over the prepared existing natural tooth and replaces the natural crown, which is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gums.
Dental crowns can be used for strength, durability and tooth stability, or for cosmetic reasons to enhance the appearance of a tooth.
Crowns are often required when a tooth has been severely weakened and is no longer structurally sound. This can be as a result of trauma, tooth decay, previous root canal therapy or even general wear over time.
This cosmetic dental treatment can also be used to brighten and improve the appearance of your smile. Crowns can cover broken, chipped, stained or discoloured teeth by modifying the shape of a tooth.
Why do I need a Crown or Dental Bridge?
Dental crowns are custom-made for each individual patient and can be matched to existing teeth making them a favourable cosmetic dental treatment option. Crowns fits over the prepared existing natural tooth and replaces the natural crown, which is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gums. Dental crowns can be used for strength, durability and tooth stability, or for cosmetic reasons to enhance the appearance of a tooth.
Your Dentist may recommend a crown for following reasons:
- to restore fractured tooth
- cover a dental implant
- protect a week tooth from fracturing
- cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment done
- to attach a bridge
- replace a large filling when there is not enough tooth remaining
What happens if I don’t get a Crown or Dental Bridge?
If dental crown is not placed on a tooth with a large restoration or the tooth which has had root canal treatment done in the past, you are taking the risk of major dental work or loss of tooth. If the tooth cracks, fracture can extends to the roots and you can easily loose your tooth or consequently require more extensive and expensive dental treatment.
