Dental crowns and bridges can restore the original look, feel and function of teeth. At Sydney CBD Dental, our professional dentists use the latest scanning technology to design custom crowns and bridges for chipped, cracked, weakened or missing teeth, with no uncomfortable moulds needed. We can match your restorations to your natural tooth colour for a seamless finish.
A dental crown is a cap placed over the top of a tooth. It may be used to restore the original shape, size and function of a tooth that's been chipped or wor down, or to strengthen a cracked or weakened tooth.
Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metals. Porcelain crowns are the most natural-looking option, as the material can be colour-matched to teeth and has similar reflective qualities to natural tooth enamel.
Dental crowns are versatile restorations that can be both cosmetic and functional. Our dentists may recommend a crown if a tooth has been damaged by tooth decay, an injury or other trauma or disease. We may also fit a crown as part of another dental procedure.
Common reasons for dental crowns include:
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more teeth. It 'bridges' the gap between missing teeth and is usually supported by the remaining teeth on each side or by a dental implant.
There are several different options for bridge tooth replacement. Our dentists will recommend the most suitable type of bridge for your individual needs.
A dental bridge could be an option to replace missing teeth if you still have some natural teeth remaining for support. Placing a bridge is less complex than having dental implants, and a fixed bridge may be preferred over removable dentures.
Benefits of a dental bridge include:

Placing a dental crown or bridge usually involves 2 visits to our Sydney dental clinic.
On your first visit, your dentist will prepare your tooth or teeth for crowns by reducing them in size. We'll then use state-of-the-art scanning technology to take an accurate measurement of your prepared teeth that can be used to manufacture your custom crown or bridge. This avoids the need to take uncomfortable moulds of your teeth.
We only work with high quality Australian dental laboratories, who will manufacture your crown or bridge to a high standard and send it back to our dental clinic as quickly as possible. We'll fit you with a temporary crown or bridge until your custom restorations are ready.
On your next visit, we'll check that your custom crowns fit correctly and make any final adjustments needed before bonding them into place. If you're having a dental bridge, this will be fitted at the same time as the supporting crowns.
There are always minor risks involved with any dental treatment. Some people find that their teeth feel painful or more sensitive after crowns are placed, but this will usually go away after a few days and can be managed with medication.
Your new dental crown or bridge should last for many years when you follow good oral hygiene and avoid overly hard or sticky foods. If it does get damaged or dislodged, make an appointment at our dental clinic as soon as possible.
