No one desires to be born with missing or ruined teeth or even acquire them in our lifetime. Missing teeth or ruined teeth may be of slight inconvenience to some, mainly only bringing problems in the aesthetic department, but most of the time, missing teeth bring difficulty in eating, speaking, and other problems. These teeth may even lead to serious illnesses. We try to take care of our teeth as much as possible, but it is inevitable. Sometimes teeth fall off or become damaged because of unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances.

At Healthy Smiles in Melbourne, we offer a multitude of options for your problematic teeth. Our caring dentists utilize state of the art and modern restorative techniques to bring back your beautiful and perfect smile.

Our restorative services include crowns and bridges which replace parts or whole teeth using natural-looking and durable crowns and bridges.

What Are Crowns and Bridges

What Are Crowns and Bridges
You might be wondering what are crowns and bridges, how do they differ from dentures and how much will they cost. Here’s all you need to know about these.

Crowns and bridges, simply put, try to replace missing teeth and function similar to the original ones. They are not like dentures that you can remove and take out. You cannot pull them out whenever you feel or need (like for cleaning purposes). This is because they are cemented and placed onto already present teeth or implants. You cannot remove them by yourselves as they are embedded well and only our dentists could remove them as they require specific procedures.

Our dentists may recommend or advise you in getting crowns or bridges or even both, depending on the condition of your teeth and the extent of the damage present. Don’t be alarmed, our dentists will help you make the best decision.

The Crown for your Teeth

Dental Crown

The Crown for your Teeth 

A crown is simply a cover that is placed on the top of the teeth. It is usually done after a root canal treatment. A crown is used when a large part of your tooth has been lost because of tooth decay or damaged because of external reasons. A crown improves the appearance of damaged teeth and strengthens them.

Usually, it is made from porcelain or ceramic. Ceramics or porcelain can feel and act similar to normal teeth with expert customization. You make a request for gold or other metals or materials if you would like. We will make sure that our work is up to your satisfaction and our dentists would do the best they can.

Crowns are usually needed because of:

Bridging Gaps using Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge
Gaps or spaces made by missing teeth may cause present teeth to move out or drift apart. This “dental drift” would create an ugly dental aesthetic or appearance and it would change your bite pattern entirely.

Gaps would also expose vulnerable gums. This can lead to gum disease, headache, migraine, pain in the neck, jaw, and shoulder. We refer to this as TMJ pain or Temporo – mandibular joint pain (TMJ is what connects the jaw to the skull).

For this dilemma, we advise you that you get a dental bridge to replace missing teeth. The bridge would be cemented to teeth on each edge of the space, thus anchoring the “bridge”. The gap would be filled by replacements. This process ensures you get the perfect set of teeth again. Our dentists will make sure that you know what happens and have a choice in the shape or look of the bridge.
