Not sure if a bridge is the right solution for you?
Let’s look at the reasons you’d make that choice
Many patients are living the legacy of a tooth extraction; perhaps a decision which has had both physical and other repercussions.
The gap left by the removed tooth can cause many problems. It can affect your bite, catch food, and over time lead to tooth and gum problems in adjacent teeth. Other teeth may move into the gap, changing the way your upper and lower teeth meet.
In situations like this, where only one or two teeth need replacing, and we have adjacent teeth that are heavily filled; a bridge is a worthy option.
Bridges are made from both precious and non-precious metal, but can also be made of porcelain (a more expensive alternative).
With health fund rebates and flexible finance options available, it makes sense to consider a dental bridge if you want to address both practical and aesthetic concerns.

Are you wanting to restore damaged, cracked or broken teeth?
Then a crown might be the ideal solution
Like many dental treatments, crowns can be a bit of mystery, that is, until you need one yourself and come to understand the benefits this treatment provides.
A crown is an artificial restoration providing complete coverage and strength to a damaged tooth.
Dental crowns are an ideal solution if you are looking to improve the appearance of teeth that have been damaged or discoloured, or you are looking to protect teeth that may have undergone root canal treatment.
Dental crown technology and materials have now advanced such that crowns take on the appearance and translucency of real teeth. For a patient considering crowns as an option for aesthetic enhancement and practical reasons, the many choices available means there are fewer excuses for postponing this decision.
Flexible finance options also make it easy for our patients to invest in themselves.
