Dental Implants Indooroopilly
A dental crown is a cap that is placed on top of your damaged teeth. The purpose of a dental crown is to protect, cover and restore the shape or integrity of your teeth. Dental crowns are typically obtained by people who have damaged or decayed teeth, but who also have enough healthy existing tooth structure so the ceramic material can be bonded to it.
If your tooth is severely damaged and not healthy enough to hold a crown, or you are missing a tooth, you may be able to have a dental implant. Dental implants Indooroopilly are special posts that can be placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth or support a denture. The dental implant is inserted into the jawbone during a minimally invasive surgical procedure at your dentist Indooroopilly.
Dr John Bacalakis is the dentist Indooroopilly locals trust with their dental implants. Having undertaken postgraduate studies specifically in implant dentistry and as a proud member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, he can work with all patients to figure out a solution that works for them to replace missing teeth.
The process of having a crown made
CEREC dental crowns restore teeth that have been weakened or broken over time. They assist by rebuilding (covering or filling) the natural shape of your tooth, so you can regain full function and an admirable smile.
Dental crowns from your dentist Indooroopilly are extremely effective when it comes to creating a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing smile and stronger teeth. The modern technology and experienced dentists at River City Dental can give you the confidence you need with our durable and effective custom dental crowns. Plus, you can now have your dental crown crafted and bonded quicker than ever!
In the past, crowns have been an expensive dental restoration that involves multiple visits. Nowadays, CEREC technology has revolutionised how patients can have their dental crowns designed, constructed and permanently bonded. In fact, if a crown is going over an existing tooth, it can all happen in just one dental appointment at your Indooroopilly dentist.
If dental implants Indooroopilly are not needed, the procedure for getting a CEREC same day crown at your Indooroopilly dental clinic is especially simple. Our Brisbane dentist will ensure you understand the process comprehensively and know what is going on at each stage. First, we will undertake a digital 3D scan to get an impression/image of your mouth. Using this impression, we will create a custom-designed ceramic restoration based on the shape of your smile and individual teeth.
Your dentist may need to prepare your tooth to make room for the crown. The ceramic crown can then be fitted and bonded to your tooth or teeth by one of our trained St Lucia dentist professionals. You will instantly have greater strength and stability, plus an improved smile aesthetic.
Here’s a summary of the process involved with a same day dental crown:
- Confirm whether you are a suitable candidate for a same day crown by booking a consultation with your Indooroopilly dentist.
- Attend your St Lucia dentist for your dental crown bonding appointment.
- Have a digital 3D scan completed by your dentist Indooroopilly.
- Allow your dentist to prepare your teeth and make room for the dental crown.
- Have the dental crown bonded to your teeth.
- Instantly notice the difference with your stronger and brighter smile.
How dental implants work with crowns
Once an implant has been inserted during minimally invasive surgery, it acts in the same way that the root of a tooth does. The strong material, often titanium, anchors replacement teeth, including crowns but also bridges, creating a smile that is on par with natural teeth. Implants are designed such that the crown fits securely over the top of it. In time, implants fuse with the jawbone.
Sometimes your Brisbane dental specialist may advise removing damaged teeth that are incompatible with crowns, such that an implant can be inserted which will enable a crown to be fitted. If a dental implant is required to support a crown, the process will take a number of consultations. The implant will be inserted and reviewed to ensure it integrated with the jawbone, before the dental crown is then constructed and fitted.
At River City Dental, our St Lucia dentists can offer a wide range of cosmetic dental and restorative dentistry treatments. These include: teeth whitening, dental veneers, same day crowns, SureSmile aligners and dental implants. These options may or may not be suited to you depending on your unique circumstances, so you will need to have consultation with your dentist near me to tailor a plan for your needs.
