There are many reasons why a patient may choose to have crown and bridgework: to improve aesthetics, to protect a weakened tooth or to replace a missing tooth. At Marsfield Dental Care we provide everyone an unbiased treatment choice and we welcome patients to ask questions to clarify their queries. We are general dentists who perform crown and bridgework when appropriate. Risks and consequences may apply to any treatment, in particular crown and bridgework. These may include, but are not limited to, trauma to the dental nerve and irreversible loss of natural tooth structure. Always seek a second opinion when considering complex treatment. A referral to a specialist prosthodontist may be required in certain situations.
At Marsfield Dental Care we’ll carefully explain the process of crown and bridgework to you so you understand what is involved. To simplify things, a crown is essentially like a “cap” which fits over a prepared tooth. The tooth needs to be prepared in such a way that the “cap” can fit over it. As a result crowns can be highly aesthetic and can successfully and reliably improve function. A bridge is a collection or a span of crowns that extends over 2 or more teeth. This means that teeth that have been previously missing even after many years may still be able to be replaced. The images shown are examples of before and after treatment that have been performed by us. To determine what treatment is suitable for you, please seek a consultation first.
Veneers are a conservative way of changing the shape and colour of your teeth. The front teeth are prepared to allow space for the veneers to be seated. Veneers are one of the ways to mask irreversible staining of the front teeth. The images shown are examples of before and after treatment that have been performed by us. To determine what treatment is suitable for you, please seek a consultation first as there are always risks and consequences to any treatment undertaken.
