Crown and Bridge

Here at North Ryde Dentistry we are able to offer a single visit crown appointment catering to Sydney’s busy work life and lifestyle. The convenience of a single visit crown is made possible with the state of the art CEREC machine which can deliver a custom made ceramic crown

 

Traditional crowns are usually delivered at a following appointment. In the meantime patients are often left with a temporary crown that’s both uncomfortable and weak

 

There are several reasons why a dental crown is needed:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Large existing fillings at risk of fracturing
  • A completed root canal tooth in need of protection
  • Cracks present in existing teeth
  • The finalise a dental implant

 

The use of Cerec CADCAM technology in our modern surgery can significantly cut the cost associated with external laboratory fees. These saving are passed onto our patients
