Crowns and Bridges
Our dentists in the Whitsundays understand how frustrating tooth damage and tooth loss can be. They know that it can make you insecure about your smile, interfere with speaking and prevent you from enjoying your favourite foods. But did you know that tooth loss can also overload and threaten your remaining teeth?
Dr Brian, Dr Alice and Dr Claire offer a variety of tooth replacement and tooth restoring options, including dental crowns and bridges to help our patients realise their healthiest and most beautiful smiles.
Why Tooth Replacement Is Important
When teeth are missing, the bite becomes unbalanced and the remaining teeth may become overloaded. The remaining teeth may migrate forward by tipping, leading to uneven wear, difficulties in cleaning and further tooth damage, including fractures.
When you visit us, our dentist will examine and discuss tooth replacement options with you. Our dentists also love talking with patients and putting them at ease, so we encourage you to ask questions and share your concerns. Together, you and your dentist will select a treatment that works for your specific smile goals—nothing makes our dentists happier than a healthy mouth and a balanced bite.
Same-Day Dental Crowns for Your Convenience
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that goes over a prepared tooth. It looks and functions just like your other teeth—no one will guess that you’ve even been to the dentist. And at Whitsunday Family Dental, we offer CEREC same-day crowns, relying on innovative technology and our own milling machine to restore your tooth during a single visit.
How We Use Dental Crowns
Dental crowns help with the following:
- Supporting a weak or damaged tooth, sometimes following root canal treatment
- Concealing tooth flaws and discolouration
- Placed on top of a dental implant to replace 'the tooth'
- Anchoring a dental bridge
A Dental Bridge Takes the Place of Missing Teeth
A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth or teeth anchored to neighbouring teeth by dental crowns. This tooth replacement option is non-removable and may help you to smile with confidence again, to enjoy your meals, and not worry about the movement of teeth or the appearance of a gap in your teeth.
We’re Passionate About Your Smile
At Whitsunday Family Dental, we aim to restore your smile and provide the dentistry you need to maintain optimal oral health for life.
