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.
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!
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.

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