Dental Crowns And Bridges At Dentists & Doctors

Nothing can beat our natural teeth when it comes to strength and function, however with

Our teeth may require an artificial crown or “cap” which often is the best way to save your tooth and provide it with more strength. At Dentists & Doctors we offer tailored treatments for dental crowns in Geelong and the greater region.

What Is A Dental Crown?

A Dental Crown or “cap” is an artificial crown which is seated on a prepared tooth and replaces the natural crown of your tooth (portion of the tooth which is visible in the mouth).

At Dentists & Doctors in Geelong, we provide our patients with same day porcelain zirconia dental crowns – giving you the best aesthetic results as well as strength and function without multiple dental visits!

What Is A Bridge?

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of an artificial tooth which is anchored to your adjacent natural teeth. A dental bridge is often used if a tooth is too badly decayed to save with a crown or has been lost due to trauma.

Your dentist may also recommend a dental implant as another option to replace any missing teeth.

Why Do I Need A Dental Crown Or Bridge?

Our teeth have several vital functions aside from chewing and biting, a missing tooth/ teeth should be replaced for the following reasons : 

  1. To improve our overall appearance and smile
  2. Missing tooth makes it difficult to pronounce and make certain sounds such as “TH” “S” “Z”
  3. Prevent stresses to other teeth in the mouth – as they will take on the additional forces from the missing tooth/teeth
  4. Prevent additional pressure and stress to other teeth in the mouth – as they will take on the additional forces from the missing tooth/teeth.
  5. Maintaining your natural bite
  6. Dental crowns improve your chewing ability – allowing you to eat a wide range of foods and maintain a highly nutritious diet.

How Do I Take Care Of My New Dental Crown Or Bridge?

Your new dental crown/bridge will need to be taken care of just as you would your natural teeth. This means you will need to brush and floss twice daily in the area, your dentist will demonstrate how to do this following your treatment.

We advise that you avoid eating any hard foods in the area of the new Dental Crown or Bridge for 24 hours immediately after placement. The cement used to bond the dental crown/bridge continues to set and mature for approximately 24 hours to achieve optimum strength.

If you experience mild sensitivity to hot or cold foods do not be concerned. The sensations will improve gradually over the next 4 – 6 weeks.

Please contact us If you experience the following

  •  Movement of the crown or bridge
  •  Sensitivity to sweet foods/drinks
  •  Sensitivity to pressure
  •  Breakage or loss of material from dental crown or bridge (very unlikely with Porcelain fused Zirconia crowns)
  •  Bad taste in the mouth in the area of your dental crown/bridge

Why You Should You Consider Dental Crowns Or Bridges With Dentists & Doctors?

At Dentists & Doctors Geelong we have the latest 3D scanning and milling technology available to provide you with high strength porcelain fused zirconia crowns and bridges in one visit!

What would previously take multiple dental visits and 2 weeks is now completed in just one dental visit and only 2 hours in the dental chair!

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks, the clinicians at Dentists & Doctors will be happy to discuss all risks associated with any procedure prior to your treatment.

Travelled from Sydney to have my wisdom teeth removed by the one and only Dr. Asef Anwar. Well worth it! I was a bit nervous but he communicated every step of the way and made sure I wasn’t in any pain. Turns out I had nothing to be worried about! Can’t thank you enough Asef 🙏🏽

I saw Dr Asef for wisdom teeth removal and it was a very pleasant experience. He walked me through every step of the procedure and ensured I felt safe and comfortable throughout. As an anxious patient this was very reassuring and I would 100% recommend this practise to everyone 😊

I was referred to Dentists and Doctors after a bad experience else where. From the start i expressed to the staff my fear of dentists, and everyone has been exceptional and compassionate. While my fear will likely always be present, my trust that i am being looked after here has been definitely helping the process. Definitely recommend to visit these amazing people

Kind, non judgmental. So very understanding and amazing during the procedure. Had a filling. Pretty tough spot, explained things exceptionally well. Fast when it counted during the filling and very patient with me needs. For the people that are afraid of going to the dentist, for whatever reason. Or haven’t been to the dentist in a long time and are anxious about the dentist. Visit here. I had DR Claire. She was amazing. I was super anxious to visit and I’ve been putting it off for years. But now I can feel at ease, knowing I can go to a dentist’s without judgement and that I’ll be in good hands. 5/5. Hands down. Do yourself a favour and go here
