What to Expect


Dental crowns and bridges are two of the best ways to strengthen decayed, chipped or cracked teeth and save them from extraction. At Dental on Clarendon in South Melbourne, we aim to save all teeth – even those that are severely decayed – and prevent broken, chipped or cracked teeth from weakening your overall dental structure. Located near the CBD, we can cater to those throughout Albert Park, Southbank and nearby areas.

What Is a Dental Crown?

By replacing the outer surface of the teeth, dental crowns restore your teeth to a completely natural look with greatly improved strength and quality. During the procedure, our dentists fit a porcelain crown or ‘cap’ over the tooth after preparation of the underlying tooth has taken place. Preparation of the tooth involves removal of decay, replacing any missing tooth structure with new, high-strength filling material and then reducing the natural crown of tooth by 1-2mm in all aspects to allow space for the new artificial crown to fit over the top.

It is bonded to the underlying tooth and made secure using strong, durable cement. A temporary crown is made at the initial visit to protect the underlying tooth while the new ceramic crown is made.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge replaces the missing tooth with an artificial one without the need for removable dentures. Crowns are also used alongside dental bridges, supporting teeth on either side of the area of tooth loss. The crowns act to stabilise and anchor the bridge in place, which is secured across the area of tooth loss to ‘bridge’ the gap.

To prepare for a dental bridge, the teeth on either side of the tooth loss are reduced by 1-2mm in all aspects to allow the bridge to fit onto them. Our dentists then bond the bridge with strong, durable cement.
