If you need dental crowns on the Central Coast, you’ve come to the right place.
Our expert dental team is highly experienced in dental crowns and bridges and can use them to protect your teeth, rebuild or replace damaged or lost teeth, and improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile.
Crowns and bridges are also ideal for maintaining the natural structure of your face profile and will ensure good bite strength and pain-free chewing.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns – also known as caps – are used to cover your tooth down to the gum line and are used to protect and restore the structure of teeth that have suffered significant decay or other trauma.
Crowns can be made from a combination of metal alloys and porcelain, or ceramic crowns provide a completely metal-free alternative and offer the best cosmetic properties.
What are dental bridges?
If you have missing teeth, we can use dental bridges to literally bridge the gap between them.
Crowns are applied to the supporting teeth, and a false tooth or teeth are applied the bridge and secured firmly in place. Dental bridges can also be made from metal-free materials such as cutting-edge zirconia frameworks.
What does the procedure involve?
Installing crowns or bridges is a straightforward treatment and generally requires just two appointments at our Advance Family Dental Lake Haven practice on the Central Coast. The existing remnants of your teeth will be carefully shaped and then your dentist will take an impression of your teeth.
We’ll put in a temporary crown or bridge during your first appointment while you wait for the custom construction of your permanent crown or bridge at our state of the art laboratory. Then simply return for your second appointment and your new crown or bridge will be installed. It is as easy as that!
