Crowns & Bridges

Artificial crowns 

Although the outside of tooth is made of strong and hard enamel, teeth can be chipped, broken or weakened due to: 

- trauma (such as a fall) 
- tooth decay
- large fillings
- root canal treatment to remove the tooth's pulp, which contains blood vessels and nerves 
- age-related wear and tear

An artificial crown is often the best way to save a tooth and strengthen it. The crown fits over the prepared existing tooth and replaces the natural crown. 

Bridges 

A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It consists of an artificial tooth anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. If a tooth is lost through an accident, or is too badly decayed to save with a crown, a bridge may be the treatment of choice. 

A thorough examination is important for proper diagnosis and treatment planning. When you're ready feel very free to give us a call on (03) 9317 5636 to make an appointment.
