Sometimes, teeth can be very weak from decay, large old fillings or just wear that leads to cracks. Teeth like this are fragile and with future use will likely fracture uncontrollably. So at iDental we intervene to stop this end cycle by placing a porcelain crown, also known as a cap, over the tooth.
Crowns are sometimes advised when a filling is not suitable due to the weakness of remaining tooth structure.
The process is simple, and our crowns are made in a state-of-the-art porcelain facility located in Kew. We work directly with the laboratory to produce a beautiful, natural looking result for you. And we never, ever send our work to facilities outside of Australia, so that we can guarantee the quality of the end result.
By using a number of crowns that are joined together, we can replace a number of missing teeth. There are some crowns that fit over teeth like regular crowns, and then some artificial crowns that replace the actual missing teeth. Bridges are fixed in the mouth and are very useful for patients that prefer non-surgical treatment, with a shorter time for replacement, as there are usually only two appointments needed.
Implants have been used since the 1970's, but are technologically superior to their early counterparts. Modern innovation means that implants are highly successful, and appear just like a natural tooth.
Dental implants can be used in many different combinations, to replace any number of teeth. Implants at iDental are managed between our dentists and our highly skilled specialist team that we regularly work with.
