At Liberty Dental Centre, we don’t just restore smiles; we breathe life back into them. With our locally crafted dental crowns and bridges, backed by cutting-edge intra-oral scanning technology, we provide customised, comfortable solutions to transform your oral health. Our commitment is beyond ordinary dental care; we aim to unlock the freedom and confidence inherent in every radiant smile.
On average, it takes approximately 2-3 weeks to receive a custom-made dental crown or bridge from our local Melbourne lab.
The process of getting a dental crown or bridge at Liberty Dental Centre involves two visits typically. During the first visit, we prepare the tooth surface and adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) to receive the artificial teeth and take an intra-oral scan. The scan is then sent to the lab, where a custom crown or bridge is crafted.
The second visit is used to fit the permanent crown or bridge. This process ensures the patient receives a properly fitted crown or bridge that lasts many years.
At Liberty Dental Centre, we have a wide variety of before-and-after photos of successful dental treatments involving crowns and bridges that Liberty Dental Centre can share upon request. Our experienced team provides quality dental services that can help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
Whether you need a temporary or ceramic crown, our dental clinic will ensure that the dental team provides you with the best dental health care available. We are proud to offer these services to our clients and are confident that you will be pleased with the results.
Determining whether a dental crown or bridge is the optimal treatment for a particular oral health issue can be difficult. Experienced dentists may recommend a crown if the entire tooth is weakened by decay or damage, is severely discoloured or poorly shaped, or has undergone root canal treatment.
Bridges, on the other hand, replace one or more missing teeth, such as a single-tooth implant, and can also be used to cover grey teeth or teeth that are unsalvageable due to root damage. The quality of your healthy teeth and the overall healthy look of your smile will be taken into account when making this decision, as both crowns and bridges can help restore the strength of your teeth and the beauty of your smile.
The longevity of a dental crown or bridge can vary greatly, but typically they can last up to a decade or more. Factors such as the material used in cosmetic dentistry, the individual crowns, the natural crowns used, and the position of the teeth over time can affect the time frame of the crown or bridge.
At the time of the consultation, a complete support team of the cosmetic and a dedicated team of professionals will be able to provide further information on the expected life span of the permanent crown. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, the dental crown or bridge can last many years.
Alternative treatments to traditional dental crowns and bridges are available to improve oral health and restore aesthetics. Dentists may recommend if a tooth is decayed but not severe or if a tooth is missing.
A filling or inlay/onlay is an option for replacing decayed teeth, while a dental implant can be surgically placed in the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root. Partial or full dentures are also available for tooth extraction or weakened teeth.
However, the best treatment option depends on your individual circumstances, and our team will discuss these with you to find the best solution for your needs.
Liberty Dental Centre employs an intra-oral scanner to take precise measurements of the teeth’s size, shape, and colour to create a restoration that matches the individual’s natural teeth as closely as possible regarding colour, shape, and size.
The dental professionals at Liberty Dental Centre in Wheelers Hill will then take extra care to ensure the colour of the artificial crown or bridge is fine-tuned to blend seamlessly with the patient’s regular teeth.
This way, the patient can get a healthy-looking, natural smile, whether a broken or damaged tooth, regardless of the dental situation. Our ultimate aim is to provide our clients with a restoration that looks and feels like their natural teeth.
