Crowns & Veneers

Dental crowns and veneers in Morphett Vale

A crown is a 'cap' or 'helmet' for a tooth. A dental crown is usually placed on a brittle or mechanically weak tooth to reinforce and strengthen it. A dental crown can also dramatically improve the aesthetic of a discoloured or misshapen tooth. 

A crown can be made from several materials with the most effective being Zirconium. 
Zirconium dental crowns usually require two visits to complete. 

Symptoms that may necessitate a dental crown: 

• Large fractures of the tooth 
• Deep hairline cracks of the tooth 
• Root canal treatment on a tooth 
• heavily discoloured or misshaped tooth 
• Large fillings causing tooth to be brittle. 

A dental bridge uses two or more teeth to support a false tooth (called a pontic). The bridge is fixed in place and feels very natural. A bridge can be constructed from start to finish within 10 days and requires two appointments. 

Dental bridges require alteration to the supporting teeth and not all teeth are suitable for this purpose. The dentists at Hillier Road Dental can tell you whether a dental bridge is a good option for you.

What are Dental Veneers?

Everyone's teeth are unique and whilst some people are lucky enough to show off dazzlingly white, straight and perfect teeth, the majority of us have teeth with "character". There is a way, however, that you can achieve a natural and healthy smile, albeit with a little bit of help from our dentists. 

Dental veneers are custom-made casings that fit neatly over the natural tooth giving it a more uniform appearance and hiding any tooth defects.

Do You Need Veneers?

Veneers can restore chipped or damaged teeth.

As a dental treatment, veneers are used for a range of cosmetic reasons: 

  • To disguise a chipped or broken tooth 
  • To act as protection for weak, cracked or fractured teeth 
  • To improve the appearance of discoloured teeth 
  • To close small gaps in teeth 
  • To help strengthen teeth that have undergone root canal surgery 

Dental veneers present a very simple solution to some of the most common problems experienced with teeth and the overall effect can transform your whole smile. 

If you book a full dental check-up today, we can assess your suitability for veneers and check the health of your teeth and gums. 

Composite Veneers or Porcelain Veneers? 

Composite veneers are made out of white resin material that is customised for your teeth and can be tailored to the shade that you are looking for to give a natural result. 

This type of dental veneer is usually used to fix small tooth imperfections like small chips or cracks in the teeth or as a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers have the advantage and convenience of being made whilst you wait in the dentist's chair. 

Porcelain veneers require a little more preparation and customisation to hide more obvious defects and to give a natural look.
