At Toombul Smiles Dental Clinic we understand that having broken and missing teeth creates a number of problems when it comes to day-to-day life. Chewing, speaking and smiling suddenly become an issue – not to mention the pain of having a damaged smile.
Our team are committed to helping patients regain their smiles with durable and reliable tooth-coloured dentistry. Dental crowns repair damaged teeth and dental bridges replace missing teeth. Both are common procedures we perform to help patients feel comfortable and get their smiles back.
When teeth are broken, worn or have developed deep decay, protecting them with a dental crown can restore comfort and function. Dental crowns, sometimes called a cap, completely covers the tooth, offering more protection than a filling, bonding, onlays or inlays.
A dental bridge fills the space in the smile left after a tooth is extracted. Dental bridge procedures are similar to dental crown procedures because two specialty crowns are required to hold an artificial tooth in place.
Dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth and offer an alternative for patients who are not good candidates for dental implants or who prefer them as an alternative.
Replacing your missing tooth will keep the surrounding teeth from tilting toward the gap in your smile and can potentially preserve your bite and smile.
