Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns are generally used to support and protect the structural integrity of a tooth…
At Teeth@Mittagong we utilise porcelain crowns for many of our dental restorations. When a tooth has been weakened by decay, a root canal procedure or needs some extra support, a dental crown is the optimal solution to these issues. Porcelain is a strong material that is durable, stain resistant and long-lasting – best of all, it can be colour-matched to your teeth so it is virtually invisible!
Bridges are a great solution to tooth loss…
If you have lost one or multiple teeth, at Teeth@Mittagong we are able to utilise dental bridges to effectively ‘bridge the gap’ caused by a missing tooth. This is important as missing teeth can cause teeth to shift in an attempt to fill the void, resulting in uneven, misaligned or crooked teeth.
What is a bridge?
A bridge is a dental restoration that utilises three dental crowns that have been fused together to form one dental appliance. The two end crowns are then placed over the teeth sitting adjacent to the site of tooth loss in order to effectively restore your smile.
