Crown and Bridge Treatment
Crown and Bridge treatment is both material and time intensive, involves laboratory support and encompasses two broad categories.
Crowns Either full or partial coverage fixed restorations designed to improve strength, contour, function and aesthetics, crowns can be fabricated from a range of materials including high gold alloys, titanium, resin, ceramic or combinations thereof. Crowns can be either tooth or implant supported.
Bridges Used for fixed replacement of missing teeth, restoring support, function, aesthetics and phonetics, bridges can also be fabricated from gold alloys, titanium, ceramics, fibre-reinforced resin or combinations thereof. As with crowns, bridges can be either tooth or implant supported.
Course of Action At Dental Sense we will initially complete comprehensive clinical and radiographic examination, obtaining mounted diagnostic casts and wax-up where necessary, to facilitate assessment and treatment planning. In the case of implant-supported restorations, additional specialist consultation with either a Periodontist or Maxillofacial Surgeon will be necessary.Do you provide a warranty? We provide a 3-year warranty against mechanical failure for all treatment provided, assuming patients comply with treatment plans in their entirety, with work being replaced at health fund rebate or equivalent.
