Same Day Crowns
A crown is needed when your tooth has been extensively filled or it is cracked or broken, or when there is not enough tooth structure left for a traditional filling or an inlay or onlay. Crowns and bridges are cosmetic techniques to restore the appearance and function of your teeth, where the original tooth or teeth are badly damaged – or even missing.
Dental crowns, specifically made and moulded to your individual tooth, act as protective caps for fragile teeth. Strengthening the external tooth surface, crowns can be made from different materials, varying in durability and appearance. Designed to last a long time, they are a reliable solution for weak, decaying or discoloured teeth.
With the benefit of the advanced technologies at our disposal, we offer Same Day Crowns.
With the highly efficient Cerac and Trios Cad Cam system, we scan, design and mill crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays right here on the premises and fit them on the same day! This is a great advancement on older methods, where several appointments were required. It is a wonderful relief for those who are pressed for time or inclination to attend recurring dental visits, as well as providing fast relief and treatment for damaged teeth.
Crowns can also be used to improve your smile, by changing the shape and colour of your existing teeth. We use quality materials in porcelain or gold. If a crown is required for a tooth at the front of your mouth, we will match the existing colour of your teeth with a porcelain tooth. Sometimes you may choose a lighter colour. Further back in your mouth, a crown can be made of porcelain, but your dentist may recommend a gold crown because of its superior strength and longevity. Every case is different and your dentist will discuss all the options with you. The result is an all-round improvement to your smile and confidence.
A Bridge of Crowns
Dental bridges do just that – They bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A crown replacing the missing tooth is joined to crowns made to fit over the adjacent teeth. In this way, the bridge, made up of three or more crowns, is supported by the teeth either side of the gap. At YFDL, we scan, design, mill and fit bridges, crowns and more, in-house in the same day, for the best comfort and convenience of our patients.
We believe that comprehensive dental care is the best way to ensure your oral health, so we make it achievable and affordable by offering individual patient payment plans, as well as gaps free dental and Medicare bulk billing. We also accept private health funds. You save by needing fewer appointments, because we can achieve quality results quickly and safely. Your smile is worth it!
