Crowns, Bridges & Veneers | Porcelain Crowns Brisbane
Healthy, good looking teeth help make a confident, attractive smile – and crown and bridge dental treatment is the ideal way a dentist can restore both the appearance and function of damaged teeth.
Functionally, crowns and bridges restore and replace natural teeth. This in turn helps to maintain the balance between the jaws when chewing food, allowing you to maintain a normal, healthy diet throughout life.
Crowns are an important restorative treatment, and act as an artificial cap that is used to improve the strength and appearance of teeth – in modern dentistry these can even match the colour of your existing teeth.
They are an invaluable tool, providing long-term durability and protection from every day wear. Our crowns are custom made in-house, and our team of qualified dentists and Prosthodontists are happy to provide their expertise and knowledge in this area to all our patients.
Porcelain veneers and composite veneers are very thin facias made from porcelain or composite resin. They are bonded to the front of your teeth and can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth and smile.
Veneers are excellent for treating chipped, discoloured, slightly malaligned or misshapen teeth, or gaps between the front teeth. Each of our porcelain veneers or composite veneers is individually made to suit your desired aesthetic result, allowing it to be indistinguishable from real teeth.
You can read more about our veneers services here – we also provide a temporary veneer service for any of our patients in emergency situations or for short-term placement during treatment.
A bridge replaces missing or lost teeth by suspending a false tooth from the natural teeth either side of the space. Crowns are made to fit on the natural teeth adjacent to the space and are joined by a solid crown in the middle.
A bridge is a permanent restoration which can only be removed by a dentist. Therefore, it offers comfort and confidence whilst smiling, talking and eating all types of food.
Maintenance & Care
Plaque is the major cause of tooth decay and gum disease. All crowns and bridges must be brushed and flossed daily to ensure all the plaque is removed. Teeth that have been restored or replaced by crowns and bridges do require extra care to remove all the plaque.
At BOH your dentist will show you any special instruments you may require and how to use them. It is also necessary for your dentist to regularly examine your mouth and your hygienist or dentist to professionally clean your teeth, ensuring continued oral health and comfort throughout life.
