Sometimes a filling is simply not enough to fix a broken tooth. Crowns and veneers are both excellent long-term options for a tooth that is discoloured, weaker or significantly damaged. At our Bondi Junction clinic, we use the latest digital CEREC system to scan your teeth and create a computer-designed restoration, which is made before your eyes. We use the state-of-the-art “e.max” material which has been proven to given long-lasting strength and comfort. The whole process can take a matter of minutes, meaning you don’t have to wait the traditional 2 weeks for an externally made product. You can leave our Bondi Junction clinic on the same day you arrive with your brand new crown or veneers.
Crowns offer strength and protection for your teeth, which is particularly useful for a badly damaged tooth. Our dentists place crowns when a tooth has a history of multiple failing/ large fillings, or when a broken tooth needs the protection that a crown offers to prevent it from being totally lost. Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment or that have developmental defects also benefit from crowns to prevent future damage. After a quick preparation, your tooth is scanned and a new crown is designed, milled and hardened in a matter of minutes, so we can permanently bond it to your tooth on the same day at Dental On Hollywood.
Veneers are primarily used to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Our dentists choose their cases carefully, as not every person or set of teeth is suitable for a veneer. Veneers are especially beneficial for people with crooked, misshaped teeth that can’t be corrected through orthodontic treatment, as well as discoloured teeth that can’t be improved with whitening. Once placed, veneers are strong and long-lasting and provide lifelike results that give our patients confidence to smile.
