Dental Crowns

A crown is a cover that sits over a tooth that may have been broken or weakened, with the purpose of returning the tooth to its former strength and natural shape. Crowns can be made from stainless steel, all metal (such as gold), porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

Dental Bridges

If you are missing one or more teeth, a bridge may be fitted to stop the surrounding teeth from moving out of place and will be anchored by one or more crowns to restore the appearance and function. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.

Having your teeth whitened is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Australia. Our dentists can help you achieve a bright, white smile from the comfort of your own home with our specialised take-home professional whitening kit.

The Dental Prosthetist whom you see about getting your new dentures is also the person who will make your dentures from start to finish. This enables you to discuss any concerns you may have and advise him/her of anything in particular that you don’t like about your current dentures.
It is recommended that you consider replacing your dentures at least every 10 years so as to prevent unnecessary damage to your gums. It will also make adjusting to and fitting new dentures much easier, particularly on the lower gums. It is worth checking with your health fund to determine how often they will pay for replacement dentures.
If your denture is loose, a reline is used to replace the fitting surface of the denture which basically gives a tighter fitting denture. It is recommended that you have your dentures checked by a Dental Prosthetist every two to three years. This will ensure your tissue remains healthy and your denture function remains satisfactory.
Hold on to any teeth that may break off as this will possibly save the cost of replacing that tooth. DO NOT try to repair the break with Super Glue as the glue is very hard to remove and makes rejoining the break cleanly and precisely almost impossible.

A mouthguard should always be worn when playing a contact sport. A mouthguard custom fitted by a dental prosthetist will help prevent tooth loss or injury.

HICAPS is an electronic system whereby your claim is make directly to your Health Fund. The fund pays your rebate direct to the prosthetist and you need only pay the outstanding gap. This saves you the time which you would normally spend going to your fund to make your claim. Most major funds now offer this convenient and easy to use system.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  1. To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  2. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
  4. To hold a dental bridge in place
  5. To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
  6. To cover a dental implant
On average, dental crowns last between 5 and 15 years. The life span of a crown depends on the amount of “wear and tear” the crown is exposed to, how well you follow good oral hygiene practices, and your personal mouth-related habits (you should avoid such habits as grinding or clenching your teeth, chewing ice, biting your fingernails and using your teeth to open packaging).
When you are missing a single tooth, or multiple teeth, a Dental Bridge is a fixed (meaning cemented in and not removable) appliance that are designed to fill those gaps with realistic looking and feeling teeth. Bridges can be made from gold, metal alloys, porcelain, ceramics or a combination of these things.

Bridges are an excellent solution to replace missing teeth in order to restore your smile, improve the appearance and support for the shape of your face, can help with eating and speaking and can prevent other teeth from drifting out of position.
With routine dental visits and excellent home care, Dental Bridges can last in excess of 10-15 years.

Bridges do not require a lot of additional care over and above good brushing and flossing. The most difficult part of maintaining a bridge is to adapt floss underneath the ‘false’ tooth in order to keep that area clean. Your dentist and dental hygienist will assist you with this.
Tray-based systems begin with a custom made tray being made from a mold of your teeth.

Plastic bleaching trays are made that fit over the user’s upper and lower teeth.

To perform treatments, the user places whitening gel in the trays and then seats them over their teeth. The trays are then worn with a specialist formulas for a prescribed period of time (often multiple hours per day, or else overnight), for a series of days or weeks, as the effects of the whitening process gradually take place.
