Crowns and Bridges Kellyville Ridge – What’s the Difference?

Our customised dental crowns cover a tooth from top to bottom and are used to strengthen weak or damaged teeth and to conceal stains and imperfections. A dental bridge is used to restore a smile when one or two teeth are missing.

Types of dental crowns in Kellyville Ridge

Porcelain or ceramic crowns tend to be the most popular with Kellyville Ridge patients because they can be matched to the colour of their teeth. However, dental crowns can also be made from metal alloys, gold, acrylic, or even porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). All of which have their advantages and disadvantages depending upon your requirements.

Crowns are most commonly used for teeth that:

  • Have large fillings
  • Are discoloured
  • Have had root canal treatment
  • Are misshapen
  • Are fractured or weak
  • Are worn-down
  • Support a bridge

Frequently Asked Questions

When are dental bridges used?
Dental bridges are often recommended by our Kellyville Ridge dentists for patients who have lost one or two teeth. The teeth on either side of the gap are crowned and used to support one or two crowns to close the gap and restore the smile. Bridges are commonly used to:

  • Improve bite functionality
  • Prevent neighbouring teeth from moving
  • Maintain the facial shape and look
  • Evenly distribute biting and chewing force

Should the teeth on either side of the gap not be healthy, an alternative is to secure the bridge with dental implants.

How long do crowns and bridges last?
This is a question that many Kellyville Ridge patients ask. To a large extent, it depends on the type of materials used. For instance, a ceramic dental bridge is the weakest type of bridge but looks the most natural. Whereas gold is the strongest and will last the longest, but it looks the most conspicuous and is far removed from the natural colour of teeth. On average however, crowns and bridges last between 5 and 15 years depending on factors such as a patient’s diet, their oral hygiene practices, and how regularly they visit their dentist.

Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
