The team at Karalee Family Dental Ipswich offer crowns and bridges as a suitable tooth restoration or replacement method.

Do you have discoloured, damaged or even missing teeth? Crowns and bridges could be the solution you have been looking for. The team at Karalee Family Dental can help you restore your teeth with the most natural look using crowns and bridges.

Restoring your damaged tooth with a dental crown

Dental crowns are used to strengthen and restore a tooth to full functionality and appearance. A dental crown, also referred to as a cap, is generally made out of porcelain material and custom made to fit over your entire tooth. A dental crown may be recommended after your tooth has been broken or damaged following a root canal treatment.

Replace missing teeth with a dental bridge


A dental bridge is a device used to replace one or more missing teeth in your smile. This fixture is placed in the vacant space in the arch and will remain stable between two artificial crowns. The dental crowns fixed to the bridge will sit over the remaining natural teeth and secure the bridge in place. Bridges will prevent shifts in your remaining teeth.

The procedure for a crown and bridge treatment

If you require a crown or bridge treatment, it is important to note that it will take up to two appointments for your restoration to be designed and fitted. On your first appointment the team at Karalee Family Dental will take impressions of your teeth and then be sent to their preferred dental ceramist to get the most appropriate fit and shade of colour. While your crown/Bridge is to be constructed you will be provided with a temporary replacement until you are ready for your next appointment.

After your first initial appointment it will then take approximately 2-3 weeks for your restoration to arrive and be fitted. Once the crown/bridge has been fitted and it is the right feel and shade of colour for you, it can then be bonded to your teeth with a strong bonding agent.

How long do crowns and bridges last?

While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they can develop some movement or even fall out if you are not following a good oral hygiene routine. You can prevent dental diseases by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. It is important to recognise maintaining regular appointments with the team at Karalee Family Dental Ipswich will provide a greater advantage for protecting your teeth and maintaining a greater oral hygiene.
