Crowns & Bridges
Fixing Chipped or Broken Teeth Is Now Easy & Cost Effective with Porcelain Crown & Bridges
Who Requires Crown or Bridge Work & How It Works?
Once a tooth has had a large filling or, back in the day, a large silver (Amalgam) filling a porcelain crown is recommended to prevent your tooth breaking while you are enjoying your favourite pork crackling.
What Problems Require Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Crowns help protect teeth that have been hollowed out during a root canal procedure or perhaps you’ve bitten on something hard and it’s now cracked but not broken off but still tender to bite on.
A bridge is a permanent or fixed replacement of a missing tooth using the teeth next to the space to hold a replacement crown in position
What's Involved in Dental Crown or Bridge Procedure?
Generally, appointments go for 60-min.
We will make sure you’re comfortable with local anaesthetic and then remove the broken down area and previous filling materials. Your tooth is then shaped to allow a seamless fit of the new porcelain crown and a 3d scan of your tooth is taken.
A temporary crown is then placed for around 2 weeks while your new crown is being made in a local, Australian laboratory.
When you return for your second appointment, often we can bond or cement the new crown without local anaesthetic and you can eat on your crown straight away.

Dental Crown & Bridge FAQ's
A Crown covers the entire tooth to prevent further damage or fracture that could be fatal for the tooth. A Dental Bridge is more than one crown next to each other to replace a missing tooth.
The cost depends on your dentist, your area, the materials used, and the teeth being replaced or covered.
Most health funds will cover a portion if not all of the cost depending on the level of care you have.
For those without such plans, the average cost of a crown ranges between $500-2,500. Porcelain crowns are cheaper whilst gold crowns are the most expensive. Bridges cost between $700-1,500 depending on the number of teeth.
