Crowns and Bridges at Dr Basil’s
If a tooth is badly broken down it may need to be restored with a crown, sometimes referred to as a cap to protect the underlying tooth structure. The restoration requires a high level of attention to detail using extremely precise clinical and technical skills.
Dr Basil works with local specialists and supports Australian Dental Laboratories by sending crowns to laboratories in Melbourne and Brisbane. They are not made overseas.
The tooth is examined to make sure the tooth is sound to place a crown on top. This involves an X-ray, testing to see the nerve is alive and that the gum condition is healthy around the tooth. The procedure normally involves two separate appointments. During you first appointment at the practice, Dr Basil will prepare the tooth by cutting some of the tooth to make room for the crown material to be placed on top. A temporary crown, which is made of acrylic, plastic or hybrid material will help protect the natural tooth while the permanent crown is being made. At the second visit, Dr Basil will remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent crown.
A crown aims to:
• Restore a broken, worn or damaged tooth or protect a weak tooth from breaking or cracking further.
• Connect to a dental bridge, cover a dental implant or strengthen a tooth with a large filling.
• Regain aesthetic appeal if teeth are misshaped or discoloured.
Used to replace a missing tooth or teeth, a dental bridge attaches to a crown on the natural teeth on either side of the gap, spanning the space where the teeth are missing.
Dr Basil can advise if this treatment is suitable for you, if missing teeth are causing problems. If you decide this is the right option, the result is strong, secure, long lasting and can only be removed by a Dentist.
Dental crowns and bridges can help restore self-confidence by changing your smile, but it is important to ask any questions you may have in regards to the procedures in your initial consultation with Dr Basil.
