Crowns and Bridges at Artarmon Dentists

Same-Day Dental Crowns

Artarmon Dentists is proud to be a leader in technology. Some of the latest advancements in dentistry are about the making of dental crowns. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over an existing tooth that has a compromised structure or aesthetic defect. They restore the strength and function of your tooth.

Normally, you’d have to have moulds taken of your tooth that are sent to a laboratory to make your crown. The process would usually take a couple of weeks. With our technology, we’ll take a 3D digital scan of the tooth, then have it milled and printed in our CEREC machine. The process takes just minutes and can be done on the day of your visit.

Dental Bridges to Fill a Gap

Just like the name indicates, a bridge spans the gap between teeth where other teeth have gone missing. They’re secured to the teeth that neighbour the gap. A bridge can be used to replace one missing teeth or a few in a row.

There are different materials available to create your bridge that will give a different result. We’ll walk you through each option and what your results will be. Some bridges can be created with our CEREC machine.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do crowns and bridges last?

The average length is between 7-15 years. If you keep up on your home hygiene habits and come in for regular checkups, they’ll likely last for longer.

What is CEREC?

CEREC combines the advantages of a 3D scanner, a computer and a specialised manufacturing machine. All crowns and some bridges can be made with CEREC. We’ll create a model of your tooth with our 3D scanner. The milling machine produces a precise model. It’s more convenient and cost-effective than the previous methods in making a crown or bridge.

How long will it take?

All crowns and some bridges can be completed in one appointment. In some cases, there can be more complex work required. If so, we may need to see you again. We’ll let you know what to expect at your consultation.

How do I know if I need a crown?

There are a few different situations in which a crown may be the most appropriate solution. For example, if you have an aesthetic defect that can’t be addressed with other services, we may recommend a crown. We’ll also place one on a tooth that has had a root canal to give greater stability to the compromised teeth. They’re also appropriate for decayed or broken teeth.
