Crowns and bridges

Crown and bridges are like a protective cap or covering for a tooth. This means they should last many years and you don’t want to go back to the dentist every few years to replace your fillings, crowns and bridges.

Dental Gigi Crown Bridge

As such, Dental Gigi has invested in our very own:

  1. OPG

All your crowns and bridgework are made locally in Australia and are not sent overseas to be made. We focus on quality so that our patients get the very best treatment. We have a variety of crown and bridge materials for you to choose from including Emax, Zirconia, Gold, Porcelain Fused to Metal amongst others. This will depend on which is best suited in your cases. Come in for our comprehensive exam and check to work out what works best for you.

What are crowns and bridges

Crowns are designed to provide a one piece coverage for a variety of reasons:

  • Root canal procedures
  • Heavily broken down teeth
  • Better aesthetics and better looking teeth
  • Better longevity
  • Less chance of reoccurring decay
  • Less chance of tooth fracture
  • Serve as a abutment for a denture

Bridges are basically longer span crowns that replace a missing space between teeth.

They are however often not so suited for multiple missing teeth. In those case implants could be a better option. See section under “Implants”.
