Crowns

Crowns Surgery MouthYour Smile in Style dentist will look after your smile. If you require a tooth restoration, we invite you to experience our high tech dental care in a comfortable, friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Many people are affected by teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken or discoloured, some to a point of feeling unconfident or embarrassed. After carefully examining your unique situation, your dentist may recommend treatment with a dental crown. A crown is custom-made to replicate the shape, size, and appearance of a damaged tooth, and is fixed into place for years of stability.

Dental crowns have been used for many years to restore strength and beauty to smiles after a tooth has been damaged by a large cavity, fracture, or root canal therapy. Crowns are beneficial after the treatment of the root canal because the original tooth structure may become brittle in the absence of a healthy nerve in the tooth. A crown will fully cover a tooth, making the structure durable for chewing.

For many years, dental crowns were fabricated from gold or metal alloy. We realise there are galvanic and corrosion issues associated with use of metals in the mouth, so we have moved to ceramic use of Emax CEREC designed crowns. Emax CEREC crowns are made with a stronger, more durable material.

The Smile in Style practices are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for quick and effective treatments. Dental crowns can be made in a single visit with our CEREC milling machine. CEREC crowns are not only ready in minutes, but are crafted with great precision, leading to a customised fit that lasts for years. After a single office visit, your new crown will be in place, and will fit suitably so as to blend perfectly with surrounding teeth.

Dental crowns are made to last for many years with proper care. With sustained oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings, your smile can remain healthy and beautiful.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
