From Carrum Downs to Cranbourne, we have been giving people a reason to smile confidently. Thompson Road Dental Services helps by providing restorative dentistry in the form of dental crowns and bridges.

What is a crown?

When a tooth has a large filling, or is severely damaged by decay, we may recommend the placement of a crown. A crown is a restoration that covers or caps a tooth entirely to restore it to its normal shape and size. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile.

Benefits of a crown:

To support a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
To attach a bridge
To protect weak teeth from fracturing
To restore fractured teeth or teeth that have had root canal treatment
To cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth
To restore a dental implant

What is a bridge?

A bridge is a way to replace one or more missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth makes it easier to chew, and it can improve your appearance. It also helps keep your teeth, gums, and jaw healthy.

When tooth loss occurs, we may recommend the placement of a bridge. A bridge is one or more replacement teeth anchored by one or more crowns on each side.

Provides adequate chewing function
Maintains clear speech and pronunciation
Prevents Bite discomfort

The dental procedure of a bridge requires two visits and follows the same process as a crown.

When you have a crown or a bridge, it is important to follow the special home care instructions that we provide for you. The life of a bridge and crown depends on your oral hygiene. It is very important to maintain good oral hygiene with regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash.
