Do you need a crown? Are you missing a tooth and want to fill that gap? Then please read on…
What are dental crowns and bridges and why might I need one?
A crown is a ceramic restoration which completely covers a tooth. A crown is recommended for many reasons: your tooth may be weak from numerous fillings or bro- ken down, it may be cracked or severely worn down.
A bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by join- ing an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth.
Crowns and bridges are done for both functionality and cosmetics.
Here at Baker Dental we offer same day Cerec crowns and bridges, all done over a four-step process. From the preparation of the tooth to the scanning of the prepped tooth using an intra oral camera, which allows the computer to produce a 3D image from which we can then design the crown or bridge.
Once design is completed, the milling machine will then cut a replica of the crown or bridge out of a ceramic block. The milling process can take up to 15 minutes and once this is complete, your crown is then ready for cementation. No need for impressions, temporary crowns or second appointments.
For any further information or if you would like to make an appointment, call us on 6862 1391.
