Dental Crowns And Bridges

Dental Crowns And Bridges

Severely damaged teeth are often a result of years of tooth decay, which can lead to the
eventual removal of teeth and periodontitis. Dental Crowns and Bridges protect your teeth from receiving any more damage, reducing the need for extraction. Tooth decay can be caused by habits such as teeth grinding or age. As your teeth become weakened by decay or receive an
injury, one of our friendly dentists may advise installation of a protective dental crown or bridge to protect the tooth and restore health to your mouth.

Dental Crowns

Often used for both restorative and cosmetic treatments, they are made from porcelain and
are ‘shells’ that cover any damaged teeth, with an aim to prevent further damage. Porcelain is used because it is the most aesthetically pleasing option because it’s easy to match colours of your surrounding teeth, giving you a natural and beautiful smile. Preparation for the crown begins with the original tooth being filed down and then the crown can fit snugly on top. They can sometimes be called ‘caps’ and can be utilised in replacing a missing tooth provided a dental bridge is implemented and strong and existing teeth are there to support it.

Dental Bridges

In comparison, a dental bridge is a combination of porcelain teeth, fixed to adjacent teeth using crowns. A bridge ensures that all teeth don’t move from the position they have been set in your mouth. This preserves your smile and instils confidence in your mouth functions. Typically, a dental bridge procedure would be used to replace one or more missing teeth.

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any
experience that reveals the human spirit – E.E. Cummings

As of January 1st, 2014, The Child Dental Benefits Schedule became active, replacing the
Medicare Teen Dental Plan. This Medicare scheme has been designed to help parents obtain
the right dental care for their children when they need it most. As a parent on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and those all over Australia, you’ll be looking for those dentists that provide bulk billing services under this schedule. We are please to advise that at AllSmiles Dental Centre here in Southport, we provide this service. This means that the only charge is the Medicare benefit and as a patient, you are not charged unless the treatment is not covered by this scheme. We’ll advise you if a service is not covered BEFORE we commence any treatment.

You can find more details about The Child Dental Benefits Schedule in our media centre.

Contact us today by phone 07 5679 5090 or via our online contact form.
