Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
Crowns and Veneer Dental treatment in Belmont / Rivervale
Crowns and veneers are a good way to treat damaged teeth. They are a long-term solution that can prove to be very cost effective.
After having complex or extensive dental work on a tooth such as a large filling or root canal treatment, a custom-made crown is the recommended way to extend the lifespan of a tooth.
Dental crowns are made by advanced dental technicians and act as a “cap” or helmet to protect the tooth from impact from other teeth or from being exposed to additional plaque.
We are proud to say that we always have our dental crowns and veneers made in Australia by a local dental laboratory, and then they are fitted here in our Rivervale clinic.
Crowns can be fabricated with porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, gold, zirconia and other materials. Each treatment option has different benefits and costs. The choice for what material to use can be confusing, so our dentists will discuss these prior to treatment.
Crowns and veneers are blended in to match your adjacent natural teeth. Veneers can be great for improving one’s self-esteem as it helps hide imperfections in teeth that are visibly damaged. The veneers can improve one or several misaligned or crooked teeth. Modern day porcelains offer a very high polish so that they won’t show stains from coffee or wine.
Overall, having a crown or veneer treatment is a great way to improve the look of your smile and protect your teeth from damage for many years to come. Chat to one of our dentists about having a crown or veneer treatment.
