Crown and bridge
All of our crowns and bridges are made locally in Melbourne at Giorgio Dental Laboratory. Click here to read more.
Crowns are also known as “caps.” Crowns are placed over an existing tooth structure to add extra support when a tooth has had either Root Canal Therapy, or if a tooth has minimal tooth structure left. Crowns are made from different materials providing strength and an aesthetic and natural tooth appearance. Crowns can be long lasting but proper home maintenance and regular dental examinations are required, because a tooth that has had a crown placed can still decay.
A Bridge is a series of crowns fused together to replace a missing tooth/teeth. Having a bridge is an alternative to having an implant which also replaces missing teeth. As with crowns, proper maintenance of a bridge is essential.
