Dental Crowns & Bridges

The team at Wantirna Mall Dental Surgery understands how good you can feel when you show off a healthy-looking smile. If you’re missing teeth or have damaged teeth, you’ve likely wondered what you’d look like if they were restored. We offer dental crowns and dental bridges to help you want to smile again.

Dental Crowns for Strength and Stability

The first step is to have a consultation with one of our dentists to determine that a crown is the best solution for you. We will examine your mouth, gums and teeth and may need to take X-rays to get the full picture of your oral health.

Dental crowns are appropriate for:

  • Aesthetic improvement
  • Broken or decayed teeth
  • Fractured or broken fillings
  • Large fillings that need replacement
  • Post-root canal treatment

Dental Bridges for a Permanent Tooth Replacement

Missing teeth can affect your self-esteem and your ability to chew and speak. There are several different types of dental bridges. Typically, they involve the placement of a dental crown on neighbouring teeth around the gap, then allowing a false tooth to be suspended into the open space. A bridge cannot be removed and is fixed in place.

  • Decreases the stress caused by chewing on remaining teeth
  • Replaces one tooth or multiple missing teeth
  • Rebuilds a smile with missing front teeth
  • Restores speaking and chewing ability
  • Re-establishes the facial proportions by filling out the lips, cheeks and jaws
  • Upgrades from a partial denture
