A dental crown is a cap that fits over your natural tooth. Dental crowns are used to provide complete coverage over a heavily damaged, chipped or decayed tooth. They also help restore the look, functionality and structure of an existing tooth. This makes dental crowns a great restorative dentistry method.
If you have a damaged tooth, it’s best to go see a dentist as soon as possible. This way, you can avoid more extensive treatment. The chances of preserving the majority of your natural tooth will also be higher.
A dental bridge is a device used to replace one or more missing teeth. With a crown on both sides for stability, it’s placed to cover the gap in your smile. Bridges also help in preventing your remaining teeth from shifting.
Both crowns and bridges look entirely natural and can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. Crowns and bridges are a great way of restoring the function of your teeth and the look of your smile.
What to expect on your visit
If you suspect you might need to visit the dentist, whether for a regular check-up or a specific problem, the first step is to give us a call. Our friendly dental assistants can help you with most inquiries, booking you in for a further consultation or treatment.
When you come in, your dentist will have a discussion with you about your needs and propose treatment. At Camira Dental, we take pride in telling the truth about patient needs, never engaging in up-selling.
You’ll get an upfront quote on the full cost of treatment before starting. If needed, it’s possible to prioritise treatment to spread out the cost. We won’t start any treatment without your verbal consent to proceed with the plan.
We use innovative pain-free techniques, providing gentle care. If you have sensitive teeth or a fear of the dentist, don’t hesitate to let our team know. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable during your visit.
Join our regular dental check-up scheme
At Camira Dental, we generally recommend booking in for a dental scale and clean every six months. However, this will differ based on your situation, such as how prone you might be to tooth decay or gum disease. That’s why we encourage everyone to join our regular dental check-up scheme as a way forward to good dental and general health. This way, we can monitor and maintain your oral health over time.
Please note that when you sign up the regular check-up scheme, appointments are bulk billed to your health fund (conditions apply).
Frequently Asked Questions
How many visits are needed to make a crown or bridge?
Crowns and bridges require two visits – one to prepare your teeth and take impressions, and one 2 weeks later to fit.
What happens between visits?
Your teeth will have custom made temporary crowns fitted at the preparation visit. At no stage will you have shortened unsightly and sensitive teeth.
Is it painful to get a dental crown/bridge?
Local anaesthetic will be used at both the preparation and fit visits. As such, the treatment won’t be painful.
Where are my crowns and bridges made?
They are made locally in Australia by Twin Towns Dental Laboratory on the Gold Coast.
