Veneers, Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges refer to the restoration of natural teeth that are heavily decayed or broken or filled. Unlike dentures which have to be taken out and cleaned daily, crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants.
A dental crown is used to “cap” a damaged tooth. Crowns are used to strengthen teeth, to restore fractured teeth, and to improve the cosmetic appearance, shape or alignment of teeth. After the tooth has been prepared, a mould is taken then sent to a dental laboratory to manufacture the crown. Crowns can be made from several different materials including porcelains, porcelain fused to metals and metals.
A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth/teeth. The teeth on either side of abutment teeth will be crowned to hold the false tooth/teeth rigidly in between.
1800 4 Teeth has dental implants covered.
A dental implant is usually made out of titanium and is a metal device designed to replace one, a few, or all the missing teeth. A small titanium screw is surgically placed into the jaw and the artificial tooth or teeth such a crown, bridge or denture is anchored. A consultation will be required, as there are many considerations in deciding whether or not implants will suit you.
