Crowns and Bridges

Restore your smile in Southport & the Gold Coast with dental crowns

Southport Dental helps you to achieve a healthy and natural smile. We provide excellent dental crown and bridge treatments in the comfortable and friendly environment of our Southport practice.

If your tooth has little structure and requires a strong long-term option, a crown treatment may be the option for you. If you're looking for an alternative to missing teeth, bridges are the ideal solution. 

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are a long-term treatment option for teeth that are heavily restored or have had a large fracture. Dental crowns look just like normal teeth and permanently sit on top of the prepared tooth, much like a thimble. The aim is to restore a damaged tooth to its full size and shape to prevent further damage and discomfort. 

For this procedure, an impression of your tooth will be taken by our dentist to ensure the shape, edges and colour are a perfect match. The missing part of your tooth will be replaced with a temporary material while the dental crown is being made by trusted dental technicians. 

This treatment is completed over two visits and approximately a two-week period. Our crowns are made in Australia using the best quality materials. Once your dental crown is ready and firmly in place, your teeth will look and feel completely natural. There are different types of crown materials available, including porcelain, e.max, zirconia, gold, empress, VMK and lava. When you visit our dental practice, our friendly dentists will decide which type is best for your needs. 

Dental bridges

In some cases, when dental implants are not possible, dental bridges are the best way to replace a missing tooth. Dental bridges are attached to neighbouring teeth to prevent strain on teeth either side of the gap and to stop your bite and appearance from being affected. 

When you lose a tooth, quick replacement is essential for optimal chewing function. Dental bridges are often the best solution when there are fewer teeth to replace, no need for bulky dentures this treatment option stays permanently in the mouth and is in a line with your smile.

Our dentists at Southport Dental will be happy to advise you on making the wisest decision about replacing missing teeth.
