Dental Crowns and
Bridges Double Bay

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is commonly used to repair fractured, damaged or decaying teeth. Essentially a cap that sits over the tooth, dental crowns are a one piece structure that provides structural support whilst being aesthetically natural. Dental crowns are an excellent way for patients to strengthen existing teeth or to avoid replacing an entire tooth.

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of differing substances. Selection of a particular type of crown should be based upon factors such as function, strength and aesthetics.

All-ceramic crowns are the restoration of choice for cosmetic dentistry because they are similar in look to that of natural teeth enabling a very desirable effect.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are an alternative method to replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge is literally a set of crowns which ‘bridge’ the gap of the lost tooth. To construct a bridge, the two adjacent teeth are reduced in size to allow crowns to be fitted; the bridge span is then attached and cemented in place.

Dental bridges are a quick alternative to replacing a missing tooth completely and can improve your ability to bite, chew and can even improve speech.

Our expert team here at Cooper St Dental, Double Bay, can provide you with assistance in your decision to use dental crowns or bridges.
