Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Crowns are used in dental for many reasons some of these reason include:

*To protect a weak tooth

*To support an implant

*To hold a Dental Bridge in place

*To support a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth

There are different types of crowns available such as:

*Stainless steel




to name a few.

Crowns are usually made over two Appointments to the dentist.

At the first appointment the dentist will shape the tooth, take an impression and place a temporary crown over the tooth untill the crown can be inserted.

The impressions are then sent to a dental laboratory. The lab will use the impressions to make a crown designed for that tooth and send it back to the dentist.

At the second appointment the crown is cemented in.

At your next dental appointment your dentist will recommend if they believe you would benefit from a crown.


How important are your kids teeth?

How important are your kids teeth?

A lack of awareness is one of the biggest problems when it comes to children and tooth decay.

There is a trend and misconception that baby teeth are not as important as adult teeth, with studies showing that a shocking 48.7% of Australian children aged between 5-6 have a history of dental decay.

Baby teeth maintain space in the mouth for our adult teeth to erupt through. If lost prematurely teeth begin to move and when the time comes for  the adult teeth to erupt, there is often not enough space. This results in the need for expensive corrective dentistry such as braces/orthodontics. Removing teeth also causes unnecessary trauma for children and makes them fearful of the dentist.

As dentists we try to emphasise the importance of good brushing techniques and dietary habits. Regular checkups are important not only to promote good habits, but we can also carry out preventative procedures to avoid the need for more excessive dental work later on.

Parents also play a role crucial role in the fight against early childhood decay. We recommend that parents should help with brushing their child's teeth up to the age of 6, and try to limit the frequency of intake of sugary foods and drinks throughout the day.

Soft Drinks and Sports Drinks

Soft Drink and Sports Drinks


Both of these drinks contain a lot of sugar and tooth eroding acids. If you consume these drinks here are some tips to help you look after your teeth.

*Try and cut down as much as possible.

*Swish your mouth with water after consuming soft drink or sports drinks.

*Dont brush your teeth for about an hour after consuming these drinks as the acid softens the enamel on your teeth temporarily and brushing can harm them.

*Dont drink these drinks before bed.

If you follow these simple steps, and visit your dentist for regular check ups and cleans you will continue to have a healthy smile.
