Restorative dentistry

Crowns & Bridges

A dental crown is custom-made by a dental laboratory to fit over the entire tooth, restoring the tooth to its original size, shape, and function, so that your tooth is fully functional.

Dental crowns can be made of a variety of different materials. Your dentist will take the time to discuss the available options to help you understand which is the right choice for you.

WHY ARE CROWNS NEEDED?

WILL MY DENTAL CROWN BE NOTICEABLE?

Here at SmileOne Dental, we take the time to ensure your new crown matches seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. It’s important that your crown should feel like a natural tooth leaving you able to smile with confidence.

Dentures

Advances in dental technology have meant that dentures can now not only be very comfortable but look incredibly natural, making eating, speaking, and smiling easy. Your dentist will take the time to fully understand your needs and assess which is the correct denture choice for you.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DENTURES?

Complete: Recommended if you have lost all your teeth. These are typically made of a durable acrylic material which fit comfortably over gum tissue.

Partial: Recommended if you are missing one or more of your teeth. Partial dentures can be made of acrylic or cobalt chrome. Cobalt chrome dentures can be thinner and utilise clasps on your teeth making them more stable.

Immediate Dentures: Recommended if you want a tooth replacement option immediately after having a tooth extraction.

Implant Retained: Recommended if you are looking to firmly stabilise your dentures.

Inlays & onlays

If your tooth decay or damage is more severe, a filling may be unable to replace your natural tooth structure and protect it from further deterioration. But if enough of your tooth is still healthy, a crown is unnecessary.

Inlays and onlays are typically much stronger and last longer than fillings. They are fabricated in a dental lab and then bonded to your tooth in the dental surgery.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INLAYS AND ONLAYS?

An inlay is made to fit between the cusps of your teeth and covers only a small section of the biting surface. An onlay covers one or more cusps.
