Dental Crowns and Bridges
While we hope to help you avoid many dental issues with preventative care, most patients will need a tooth repaired at some point. Our goal at Dental Design is to provide you with the highest quality dentistry delivered with the finest materials so you’ll enjoy quality restorations for years to come.
When your tooth sustains an injury, decay, infection, or other damage that goes beyond the range of what a filling can repair, our doctors will recommend a dental crown to restore your tooth and protect your root. We customise each crown using tooth-coloured porcelain to closely match your natural tooth in both form and aesthetics.
Your crown will provide the same function you enjoyed with your natural tooth, which means you’ll be able to brush, floss, eat, and chew just as you were used to doing. Crowns are durable and can last for many years with the right home care and regular dental check-ups.
A missing tooth greatly affects the quality of your life, and our patients living with one or more missing adjacent teeth may benefit from a dental bridge. A bridge uses crowns as anchors to your natural teeth with prosthetic teeth attached to fill in the space (or "bridge the gap") between your missing teeth.
This is a fixed appliance, so you won’t have to worry about removing it for cleaning. Instead, you’ll brush and floss around it. In fact, in order to ensure the longevity of your bridge, it’s very important to keep your anchor teeth clean and healthy with excellent brushing and flossing as well as and regular visits to your dentist.
Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing a missing tooth; however, they can also be used to support dental prosthetics such as a bridge or denture. This provides options for patients missing more than one tooth – or even all of their teeth. Implants make great anchors for bridges, providing great stability while also ensuring the health of your bone.
Dr Sian has over 18 years of experience in placing dental implants and he can customise a restoration that will meet your needs, no matter how many teeth you may be missing.
If you have a missing or failing tooth or a tooth in need of repair, the first place to start is a consultation with Dr Sian or Dr Smit to discuss your options and learn more about the possibilities for your teeth. We’ll discuss your desires and goals for your smile with you and go over options for treatment so you can make an educated decision about your care and get back on the path to optimum oral health once again.
