Crowns and Bridges
Dr Brendan Quill is passionate about helping people retain the beauty of their smiles, even when dental work is necessary. Crowns and bridges are two of the most common restorative dental procedures. We use natural-looking, tooth-coloured materials to repair your smile without leaving a dark mark on your smile.
Gentle, pain-free dentistry
At Dentist in the Park, our experience is that our patients are more likely to have the dental care they need to stay healthy if they know the procedure won’t hurt. We use The Wand® anaesthetic delivery system to ensure that our patients have a pleasant experience free of discomfort. We also offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation options for patients who have anxiety about dentistry.
Dental crowns to protect teeth
Dental crowns protect teeth in the wake of a fracture, broken cusp or deep decay.
We can also use them to protect your bite and to repair teeth.
- Worn, sensitive teeth
- Rebuild worn teeth
- Cover a large cavity
- Replace large, silver fillings
- Improve the appearance of dark or misshapen teeth
How dental crowns work
Dr Quill will begin by removing all signs of decay or damage, leaving behind healthy tooth structure to support the crown. He will take an impression of your tooth and shade-match it to the colour of the surrounding teeth.
After placing a temporary crown on your tooth to protect it, he will send your crown information to our trusted dental lab where they will design your permanent crown. Once the crown is ready, Dr Quill will permanently attach it to the tooth and make any final adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
Dental bridges to replace missing teeth
Sometimes a tooth extraction is the only way to prevent pain or dental conditions that put your other teeth at risk. After an extraction, we offer a number of tooth replacement options to complete your smile.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap in your smile by using two healthy teeth to anchor an artificial tooth in place. Like our dental crowns, Dr Quill will match your bridge to the surrounding teeth, so your smile appears seamless.
He will place a temporary bridge on your teeth to hold the available space until your permanent bridge arrives in our Bondi Junction dental clinic. The final step is to permanently bond your bridge and make small adjustments for a comfortable bite.
Caring for your dentistry
Dental crowns require normal brushing and flossing to keep them healthy. Your regular dental appointments are also an important part of this care.
Your dental bridge will require some extra attention with special dental floss or brushes to remove the food particles from beneath the bridge and to prevent gum disease or decay.
