Dental Crowns and Bridges
When you are suffering from chipped, cracked, broken, decayed or missing teeth, your King Street Dental Group dentist works with you to restore your teeth so simple things like eating, talking and smiling can return to normal for you.
When Should You Have a Dental Crown Procedure?
A dental crown is a covering for a tooth. They come in a variety of materials including ceramic, resin and gold. At King Street Dental Group, we specialise in strong and attractive porcelain crowns that can be matched to the shape and colour of your existing teeth.
Crowns are an effective and simple treatment for:
- Discoloured teeth
- Cracked or brown teeth
- Lost fillings
- Replacing an existing filling
- Preventing further cracking and fracturing
King Street Dental Group can assist you with a dental crown replacement if you are experiencing difficulties with your existing structures. Make an appointment so we can analyse and diagnose the problem, offering the best solution to protect your teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
A dental bridge fixes the gap left by a missing or extracted tooth. It is often ceramic and involves fusing a ceramic tooth between two or more crowns on either side of the missing tooth. The crowns serve to hold the bridge in place, with your tooth bridge being shaped to accommodate the crowns.
If you have a gap in your teeth, other teeth may start to drift into the space left behind. A bridge prevents this from happening, protecting your oral health for the future.
The Dental Bridge Procedure
To create a bridge, your dentist will scan your mouth and then design a tooth to fill the bridge. There are several types of bridges available. The functionality of your teeth and jaw impact the type of bridge most suitable for your mouth. Your dentist will talk you through the options, ensuring you receive the right structure for your needs.

You should also take the time to see your dentist regularly for check-ups.
