Dental Crowns and Bridge Perth
Your smile can make all the difference!
Whether you want to improve the functionality or the overall aesthetics of your teeth, we are here to help. At Excel Dental Care, we often come across people experiencing tooth decay, broken or worn teeth.
To strengthen, protect and improve your teeth aesthetically, dental crowns are an excellent option. They are custom made covers for your already existing teeth made to improve both the looks and the strength of your teeth. They are normally made out of either a mix between metal and porcelain or just porcelain and the choice of material will depend on your personal preferences and requirements. Some materials are better suited for purely aesthetic solutions while other materials are tougher and constructed for extra strength.
Dental crowns have a large repertoire of usefulness and can also be applied to restore a dental implant, cover discolorations or protect an already restored tooth.
As a guideline, we will provide you with a local anesthetic during the placement of the dental crown. There may be some slight discomfort in the following 2-3 days afterwards, however this will ease. We recommend you to eat a soft diet if these problems arise and will provide you with any further advice if you require so.
The crown can last for many years as long as basic dental hygiene, such as brushing and flossing your teeth is well-managed.

What is a Tooth Crown?
A dental crown is a procedure that covers an existing tooth, effectively replacing a damaged crown.
Crowning a tooth is needed for one of two reasons:
- To improve the overall effectiveness of their teeth.
- To enhance the appearance of their teeth.
Whichever you need, our Perth cosmetic dentists at Excel Dental Care are on hand to help you.
Daily, we come across individuals suffering from some oral issues, from tooth decay to worn-out or broken teeth. Dental crowns can help prevent these problems and strengthen and improve the general appearance of your teeth.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of options:
- Glass Ceramic
However, you can choose a material that suits your needs along with the base of porcelain. Apart from personal preference, the choice is determined by what kind of dental work a patient needs.
Our Perth Cosmetic Dentists will meticulously go over your options with you until you find something that suits your needs.

What's a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is a space that’s left when you lose a tooth or more. A dental bridge is a material used to fill in that missing space. A dental bridge is a false tooth with a crown on either end of the bridge. Implants or natural teeth are what hold a dental bridge in place.
Natural teeth or implants support dental bridges. Teeth bridge can be made from materials like gold, alloys, porcelain, zirconia etc. You can also opt for a combination of these materials.
Bridges vs Crowns
A dental bridge replaces missing teeth while you use a dental crown to fix a chipped or broken tooth. Both employ prosthetic devices to improve teeth aesthetics.
Benefits of a Dental Crown and a Teeth Bridge
You would need a dental crown if you lose a tooth or a dental bridge if you lost one. A dental crown and bridge can help you with the following:
- Restore and improve your smile.
- Improves your speech and ability to chew properly.
- Prevent the other teeth from drifting out of position.
- It helps to restore and protect the dental implant.
- Fix teeth discolouration.
Dental Crown and Bridge Procedure Perth
Getting a tooth crown or dental bridge at Excel Dental Care is a straightforward process. All you need to do is book a consultation and schedule an appointment.
On your first visit, we prep the abutment tooth. Preparation will include re-contouring the tooth by scraping off the enamel aspects to allow the crown to fit over them easily.
The next step is for us to make an impression of the teeth. We do this dental procedure to obtain models from which the pontics, crowns, and bridges will be produced. The production typically takes place at a dental lab.
Our dentists would create a temporary bridge for you to wear to protect your exposed teeth and gum while we craft your permanent bridge.
All of this will happen on your first visit.
On your second visit, we will remove the temporary bridge. Before the procedure, we will provide a local anaesthetic to reduce any resulting discomfort. After removing the temporary bridge, we will replace it with a permanent bridge.
Recovery and Aftercare for Crowns and Bridges
In most cases, it would require a couple more visits to recheck and review the bites and the metal framework. The number of visits needed varies with individuals.
A few days after the surgery, you may experience some slight discomfort. However, such discomfort is temporary and will dissipate in a few days.
During the first few days, you would need to watch your diet. Hard-to-chew meals can trigger sensitivity in your newly fixed bridges, so you may want to stick to a softer diet.
