Crowns and Bridges in Toowoomba

Crowns and bridges can help to regain shape, structure and support to the whole mouth.

Crowns

For teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, crowns can act as the perfect solution, repairing the structure and function of the tooth by ‘capping’ the tooth with a recreated artificial tooth or ‘crown’.

When a tooth has become damaged by cracks, decay or disease, the necessary treatment will involve the removal of the affected area, helping to secure the remaining healthy part of the tooth. This is then capped with an artificial crown, which replicates the natural state and shape of the original tooth.

Covering the entire surface area of a tooth, crowns that are generally made from a porcelain ceramic material and provide numerous benefits to patients. Porcelain crowns are aesthetically pleasing and have a complimentary texture, translucency and colour, reminiscent of natural teeth.

Teeth may be in need of a crown for a number of reasons, including ageing of the teeth, deterioration of large fillings, grinding of teeth, improper bite or poor oral hygiene. Crowns are also traditionally used after root canal treatment, to help seal and secure the area of weakened tooth and prevent further infection or decay.
