A Lasting Solution to Chipped, Broken or Heavily Filled Teeth
Do you have teeth which are heavily filled with large silver (amalgam) fillings or teeth which are cracked or broken. Or, have you been suggested a crown by your dentist? Dental crowns offer a long lasting solution for teeth which are broken, chipped or cracking and are a durable replacement for large silver fillings.
To arrange an appointment or if you are looking for more information, call Windsor Dentist today, your personal and caring North Brisbane Dentist.
Call (07) 3357 4177 and ask our friendly staff about metal-free porcelain or zirconia crowns. We also do precious gold crowns on special request.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration which are use to protect heavily filled teeth from breakage and to restore broken down teeth which are structurally weakened. They can also be used aesthetically to correct the shade of discoloured teeth.
They protect your teeth by completely covering your damaged tooth structure allowing you to eat comfortably and confidently, without the fear of breaking your teeth.
Dental Crown Procedure
Dental crowns take 2 visits. At your first appointment, your teeth are cleared of tooth decay and all existing filling material is replaced before final moulds are taken by your dentist. These moulds are sent to our specialist ceramist to create your protective crown, a process which takes about 2 weeks.
After a fortnight, we check the crowns for accuracy in their size, shape, colour and positioning. They are then bonded to your teeth using a strong dental cement before being polished to a natural finish. Additional adjustments may be required after placement.
