Crowns and Bridges in North Balwyn, Melbourne


Crowns or “caps” are a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth.

We often use crowns when a tooth is in particularly poor condition. It may have started to crack, or it may be broken, decayed or diseased as a result of large fillings, ageing, tooth grinding, improper bite, poor oral hygiene or after root canal therapy.

Metal-based crowns have been used for many years to strengthen or rebuild teeth. Thanks to the latest advancements in cosmetic dentistry, ceramic / porcelain crowns now offer an effective, aesthetically pleasing option.

Types of crown:

Ceramic crowns – ideal for front teeth, ceramic crowns look and feel like natural teeth
Metal crowns – ideal for back teeth, metal crowns can be made of gold alloy, palladium, nickel or chromium alloy
Porcelain fused to metal – look like natural teeth and can be used anywhere in the mouth

A dental bridge may be used to replace one or more missing teeth.

Bridges are a long-term solution that can help prevent the problems that occur when just one tooth is missing, such as movement of remaining teeth, decay , and periodontal bone loss. 

A bridge is a device anchored to the surrounding teeth. Two crowns are secured to the teeth either side of the gap, and an attached crown replaces your missing tooth, effectively ‘bridging’ the gap.

Types of bridges:

Fixed bridge – replaces one or more missing teeth while providing support for adjacent teeth
Resin bonded bridges – this is used mainly on front teeth and is bonded to the back of adjacent teeth
Cantilever bridges – used when there is only one tooth available on one side of the gap
