Crown and Bridgework
One of the best long-term solutions to restore a tooth back to its full function is a dental crown or “cap”. Made from high-grade ceramic, a crown is placed when extensive dental work such as root canal therapy, a fracturing tooth or decay that is too widespread for a filling to be used successfully.
To ensure the long-term success of your treatment, a thorough examination is conducted prior to preparation of your crown or bridge.
Dr Lother Poon is highly skilled in crown and bridge dentistry.
“I am very fussy when it comes to my crown work. Every little detail counts, even though no patients will ever see their tooth once the crown has been placed over it”
“I only use the very best Australian dental lab/ceramist to construct my crowns, not cheap overseas made crowns. We have a great long term relationship with my experienced ceramists and technicians. I will never compromise my patients’ results with using cheap dental laboratories”
And here at Seddon Dental, we have consistently kept prices for crowns well below Melbourne’s average.
Veneers can be either finely crafted from thin pieces of porcelain or composite resin. They are used for fixing teeth that are chipped, discoloured, crooked or have gaps.
Optimal oral health will significantly contribute to the success and longevity of your new veneers, therefore our team may prescribe a stringent oral hygiene routine, including a visit to our hygienist prior to starting your veneers.
Inlays and Onlays
These are essentially “partial crowns” for back teeth. They are ideal for larger restorations in back teeth, where full coverage crown is not viable and can usually be done with minimal destruction of your natural tooth.
As a strong believer of “minimal intervention dentistry”, Dr Lother Poon has been using bonded porcelain restorations for years with great results. This provides another (sometimes more economical) option from a full crown and still offers superior long term longevity and strength over white fillings.
