Crowns and Bridges
At Fanelli Dental, your smile is the most important one in the room, which is why we will help you come up with a solution to support your goals for your smile. Crowns and bridges are an excellent way to restore broken down or missing teeth to normal appearance and full function.
At Fanelli Dental, we use a local master technician to create custom crowns and bridges in our Gladstone dental clinic. By using various types of ceramic, including CEREC technology, the results are natural-looking and durable.
Dental Crowns to Repair and Protect Teeth
Teeth sometimes break down due to misalignment, habits such as bruxism (teeth grinding), from deep decay and trauma. We offer durable, high-quality ceramic crowns using CEREC technology in our Gladstone dental clinic making it possible to receive your final crown in a single visit.
CEREC is an innovative and high-tech solution to create dental crowns in-house during your appointment. Using CAD/CAM technology, we digitally scan the tooth and upload the information into our software. The software digitally designs a custom dental crown in our in-house milling machine, similar to a 3-D printer, out of a single piece of ceramic.
Dr Remo Fanelli or one of our other dentists will then place the personal aesthetic touches on the crown including precise shading to match your adjacent teeth.
In most cases, CEREC crowns are an appropriate option. We also offer laboratory-created ceramic crowns, full gold crowns and ceramic/metal hybrids to meet the varying needs of our patients. Our dental clinicians will be happy to discuss all of your options so that you can make an informed choice that gives you confidence in your smile.
Dental Bridges Replace Missing Teeth
Whenever possible, opting to replace a missing tooth will keep adjacent teeth from shifting and negatively impacting the bite. A dental bridge not only completes your smile but also acts as a placeholder to keep other teeth from tilting out of alignment.
Made of aesthetic and durable ceramic, dental bridges rely on dental crowns placed on two healthy adjacent teeth to hold an artificial tooth in place, filling the gap in the smile.
Like dental crowns, our dentists artistically colour and shade the bridge for a seamless smile.
Dental bridges require some special care, including cleaning around and beneath the bridge to remove plaque and food particles, which feed bacteria and cause gum disease to develop.
Alternatives to dental bridges include dental implants and partial removable dentures.
