Crown and Bridges at East Fremantle Dental Centre

Teeth can become damaged from a variety of reasons. They may become worn down from tooth decay, ageing or a form of trauma. In severe cases, a tooth can be lost, leaving you with a gap in your smile. If you need to address a tooth that has lost some of its structure, or one that is missing, East Fremantle Dental Centre provides long-lasting crowns and bridges.

We’ll discuss all possible treatment options for your situation with you, walk you through the advantages of each and let you decide which you’d like to choose.

Dental Bridges

A bridge involves crowns that are placed on the adjacent teeth with a fake tooth suspended into the open space. A bridge is stable and fixed in place, so you won’t have to worry about removing it and can treat it like a natural tooth.

What to Expect

Once you have decided to move forward with a dental bridge, we’ll prepare the teeth on either side of the gap. In some situations, you might only need to have one tooth holding the bridge. We’ll send a description of the space to be filled to our laboratory, taking photographs and impressions to get the best possible outcomes. Dentist Dr Carmen Hobeika stays in communication with the lab to make sure that your custom-created bridge will fit you seamlessly. When it’s sent back to our practice, we’ll check the fit and cement it into place.

Dental Crowns

What to Expect

A crown can be made from metal, porcelain or a combination of the two, depending on which is best for your case. We’ll prepare the tooth and can give you local anaesthesia for this part of the procedure, if necessary. Impressions are taken, then sent to the laboratory, where your crown is created. You’ll receive a temporary crown to wear until your permanent crown is ready.

In a week or two, it will be sent back to our practice, and you’ll return for a follow-up. At that visit, we’ll make sure that we are satisfied with the crown’s fit and that you’re happy to have it cemented into place.

Ensuring Your Comfort and Satisfaction

We take our time with each procedure, making your comfort our priority every step of the way. We’re happy to stop anytime that you want to give you a break. You can rest assured that we’re dedicated to high-quality dental care, using the best available materials and making certain that you’re pleased with your restoration. We’ll check the fit, your bite and the colour so that you are satisfied with the outcome.
