Tullamarine Dental Crowns
Crowns are restorations that cover the entire surface of a tooth up to the gumline. We may recommend a crown if your tooth has been impacted by:
• Root canal treatment
• Deep decay
• A large fracture
• Failure of an old, large filling
• Significant aesthetic concerns
Our comfortable crown treatments in Tullamarine usually require about two-three visits to complete.
Advantages of Having a Crown
Repairing the tooth with a customised crown not only enhances the appearance of your smile, but it also restores your tooth back to its normal biting and chewing capabilities. Otherwise the tooth would continue to break down to the point where it becomes non-restorable and an extraction is your only alternative.Crowns are also used over dental implants for single tooth replacement purposes.
Porcelain Crowns Near Victoria
All of our porcelain crowns are custom-matched to blend with the colour of your adjacent teeth. This allows your new restoration to look as if it were a natural tooth. The materials may seem simply cosmetic in nature, but their quality design allows you to go about your day without worrying whether or not your tooth can withstand regular activities. All of our porcelain crowns are made in Australian laboratories.
In certain cases, a metallic crown made of a gold alloy can be beneficial to the long-term wear and fit of your new restoration. Gold is especially useful for teeth towards the back of the mouth such as upper molars, which bear excessive biting and chewing load on a day-to-day basis. The location of these teeth also prevents your gold crowns from being visible when you’re talking or smiling in public.Temporary stainless steel crowns may be used before a permanent crown can be placed, or when restoring a baby tooth that will eventually fall out. Unfortunately, they cannot be used for long-term restorative purposes.
