Dental Crowns and Bridges
in Geelong

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 provide customized solutions for dental crowns in Geelong and the surrounding areas.

What Is A Dental Crown?

While crowns are frequently recommended as an essential procedure to reinforce your teeth, many individuals inquire: what exactly 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 (the portion of the tooth which is visible in the mouth).

At Dentists & Doctors in Geelong, we offer our patients same-day porcelain dental crowns, ensuring optimal aesthetic outcomes, strength, and functionality, all achieved in a single day’s visit!

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 serve multiple crucial purposes beyond simply chewing and biting. It's important to replace missing teeth with dental crowns or bridges 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

Dentist & Doctors is by far the best in dentistry in our area. They are amazing at dealing with any problem you may have and have given myself and my family the best dentist care we have ever received. Dentist and Doctors have the most amazing staff to help with any dental procedures you could ever need. They are very reasonably priced and really care for all of their patients. We have been attending Dentist and Doctors for several years now and have changed my opinion about Dentists altogether. I was always ashamed to smile but now that has completely changed. Asef and all of his staff offer the very best in quality service. Please don’t hesitate for the latest technology in dental care and the friendliest atmosphere you could ever imagine. Thankyou to Asef and all of his team as they are by far the best Dentist to have. Quality and kindness always. Regards JO PRATT & FAMILY.😁

Dr Matt and Dr Asef make you feel very welcome to their Practice. Nothing is too much bother for them and they are more than happy to explain the procedures in detail and answer any questions you may have. I had 4 – 3 hour sessions to do the prep work and fit crowns to my very worn out teeth. I was made to feel very comfortable during those sessions with staged breaks along the way. The final results are amazing. My Good Wife Bon is very pleased with the end result too. Happy Wife, Happy Life! I highly recommend Dentists and Doctors Geelong to everyone for their ongoing Dental Support. The front desk Team are also very helpful and supportive. Nothing is too much bother for them in finding suitable appointment times and answering any billing enquires you may have. Thank you Matt, Anwar, the Dental Nurses and your lovely Support Team. Best wishes for a great ongoing future here in Geelong.

Amazing service from Dr Pascale at the dentist. My son, who has severe anxiety, was made to feel very calm during a procedure. He was always told what was happening and always given a chance to stop. The ladies at the front desk have always been helpful and it doesn’t smell like a dentist! I recommend this place to those that have anxious children or are anxious themselves.
