The team at North Carlton Dental Group has the experience, resources and technology to provide you with a leading service for dental crowns in Melbourne.
Dental crowns are used for the restoration and protection of damaged or broken teeth. It’s not uncommon for weakened teeth to chip or break entirely; a crown is a protective enclosure that actively prevents this from happening. It is also useful for covering deformed or severely discoloured and rotted teeth.
Crowns are used to hold dental bridges in place. A bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing and acts as a stop gap to prevent other teeth from shifting out of place. Bridges are essentially false teeth that are plugging gaps and a crown will hold them steady.
North Carlton Dental Group offers dental crowns in Melbourne in a range of materials. Full ceramic and porcelain crowns will provide the best colour match to your existing teeth and offer a suitable, inconspicuous option. Temporary crowns can be made in acrylic or stainless steel and can act as temporary protection until a permanent crown is installed.
Dental crowns can last for as many as fifteen years depending on how well you manage your oral hygiene. It’s important to remember that a dental crown is not like a bullet-proof vest for your tooth. The damaged tooth is still exposed to the threat of decay and gum disease and proper healthy dental hygiene must be maintained.
