Dental Crowns

Protect and improve your teeth with help from the team at Dental on Kennedy.

A Crown or cap is applied by encasing the tooth in either resin or porcelain in order to create a tooth with perfect shape and dimension. The benefits of crowns go beyond the superficial, as they act to strengthen the structure of the tooth more than any other procedure.

Crowns may be required for a number of reasons including:

  • Chipped and broken teeth
  • Cosmetic improvement
  • Decay
  • Filling complications
  • Root canal protection

Several materials are available to create crowns however porcelain is the most popular as it closely resembles a natural tooth. A strong and hardy material, porcelain crowns are guaranteed to last. If you take care of your teeth you can expect crowns to maintain their integrity for a long time.

Dental on Kennedy are experts at sizing and fitting quality crowns that will last. We offer a comprehensive service and conduct a sophisticated procedure to ensure the crown matched the colour, size and shape of the rest of your teeth.

Dental on Kennedy will provide advice on ongoing maintenance to ensure the crown stays applied and healthy.

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges offer those with missing teeth a solution. A dental bridge is essentially an appliance that is permanently fixed to the mouth to replace the missing tooth. The result is exceptional and any sign of a missing tooth is unnoticeable.

Dental on Kennedy will create a bridge specific to your requirements. The artificial teeth on the bridge are made out of porcelain while the bridge itself is metal. Porcelain is the material of choice for dentists seeking to recreate teeth that look natural. A strong and reliable material, with proper maintenance porcelain can last a lifetime.

At Dental on Kennedy we require two sessions to fit a bridge. The first involves taking impressions in order to create the bridge. The second visit involves the fitting, cementing and checking of the bridge.

After receiving a bridge ongoing care is essential to ensure its longevity. Bridges are an effective way of replacing missing teeth. Contact Dental on Kennedy today for more information.

A great alternative to crowns were damage is less extensive the sheer versatility of veneers makes them a terrific solution for a variety of dental requirements.
Veneers can be applied to assist with:

  • Crooked teeth

  • Badly shaped teeth

Porcelain veneers

A porcelain veneer is a semi-transparent tooth shaped “shell” that is custom-made to fit over the face of each of your teeth, in a dental laboratory. Veneers are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers are typically completed in two appointments. During the first appointment, your teeth are cleaned and prepared and an “impression” is taken that is used to make a model of your teeth. This is used by the dental laboratory to make your veneers. At the second appointment, your veneers are set in place.

Composite veneers

Your teeth can also be veneered using composite resin, which is applied to the surface of your teeth as a paste, sculpted to the required shape and then “set” using a light activation system that makes it rock hard. Composite veneers can typically be completed in one appointment.

Dental on Kennedy will assess the condition of your teeth and apply veers accordingly. The procedure is pain free and you can eat and drink a few hours after the fitting. As with all of our procedures we stress the importance of ongoing maintenance such as correct brushing and flossing to ensure the longevity of your veneers.
