Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges

Dental Crowns are used to repair teeth that have been worn down due to grinding, an improper bite, age, fillings and tooth decay. When the entire surface of a tooth is a problem, but the root system is intact, a tooth crown may be suggested. They cover the surface of the affected tooth, adding strength, durability and stability. There are different types of crowns which are made of different material. Ask one of our friendly dentists at North Sydney Dental Care about which option best suits you.

Dental Crowns

Typically, you will find that the average cost of Dental Crowns in Sydney ranges from between $1,800 to $2,300+.

Most dental practices require 2 visits, and for cheap crown options, some also use offshore dental labs in China to make the Dental Crowns to reduce the cost (likely at the expense of quality).

At North Sydney Dentistry, we make our Dental Crowns in-house to ensure quality and to offer Dental Crowns in only 1 visit. This has the benefit of saving you both time and money. You will also find it an interesting process, as your Dentist at North Sydney Dentistry shows you the process of designing your dental crown and then watch the dental crown being made in our high tech precision milling unit.

North Sydney Dentistry Dental Crowns

What is a dental crown?

Our teeth go through large amounts of stress due to trauma, heavy clenching and grinding. Over time this stress causes our teeth to weaken and greatly increasing the chances of fractures. In order to prevent these fractures dental crowns or onlay are often advised by dentists. Dental crowns cover the entire outer surface whereas the onlay covers only where the fractures are. These types of restoration processors improve both the aesthetics and the natural function of the tooth. The restoration protects the tooth structure from fracture using high strength dental ceramics.

Should I get a Dental Crown?

At North Sydney Dentistry a crown is only suggested to a patient when one of our expert dentists has extensively examined your mouth and is convinced that certain teeth have a high probability of fractures or damage. Patients will be advised as to the best course of action as each individual case is different. All recommendations are made in the best interests of our patients and will be clearly explained and discussed with you before any treatment proceeds. We consider ourselves to be conservative dentists and all restorative options will be discussed.

A crown is a dental restoration that encapsulates a tooth, giving patients the protection against many of the harmful agents we place in our mouth on a daily basis. Extreme temperatures (hot and cold), hard or tough foods, or acidic fruits and drinks damage our teeth overtime. If you experience sensitivity or discomfort a dental crown may be the answer to your problems. However, they are not inexpensive; we believe that cost should not stop patients from protecting their teeth or from enjoying the finer things in life. This is why we provide this service at a reasonable rate as recommended by the Australian Dental Association median dental fees. We proudly offer some of the best pricing in the north Sydney area.

Single-Visit Ceramic Restoration/Crown

We utilise CAD-CAM (computer-aided-design, computer-aided-manufacturing) technology to scan a tooth, design its restoration, and mill it with a high-precision milling machine. The technology is now widely used in dental labs to produce precision-fit, aesthetic dental restorations.

The Dental Technology that we use offers high precision scan with accuracy in the microns!

North Sydney Dental Crowns Design

If you need a dental crown, feel free to contact us to receive quality treatment using the best and latest dental technology. Our Dental Crowns are designed by your dentist and you can participate in the process. The Dental Crown is milled from high-strength dental ceramics traditionally only made available to dental technicians.

Single-visit crown and ceramic restoration means that you will not have to live with temporary crowns that pop off, or 2 injections. It is literally ‘done and done’ right in front of you. This technology can also be used for cosmetic dental veneers.

Dental Crowns North Sydney generally last for about 10-15 years. However, many patients will have their crowns for a lifetime. Crowns need to be replaced when they have chipped or broken. Proper oral hygiene is important in helping you maintain your crowns.

Typically 2 visits but we are able to do this in a single visit.

Crowns usually require two separate visits. Upon the initial visit, the dentist will examine the tooth, take x-rays to check for cavities and the structure of the tooth root. We have the equipment in house to make dental crowns in-house in one visit. A local anaesthetic is given and then tooth is filed down and reshaped. Then, the dentist will take impressions of the tooth which are then sent off to the dental laboratory, where the crowns are custom-crafted. This will take up to a week. During this time, you would have a temporary crown fitted. Upon your second visit, you will have your crown permanently cemented in place if the crown fits.

To avoid this inconvenience of having 2 visits, ask us about our single visit dental crown procedure which will provide you with the best convenience.

Tooth preparation can cause sensitivity and soreness. However, some people experience no pain at all, depending on how close the surface of the tooth is to the nerve. A local anaesthetic is given during this time.

Yes. During the preparation process, the dentist will colour-match your new crowns to the surrounding teeth so they blend in naturally. If you plan to have your teeth whitened, this should be done beforehand as crowns cannot be whitened. If your existing crowns are very old and discoloured, they would need to be replaced with new crowns for the colour you want.

Dental Bridge

Dental Bridges are a fixed option to restore a missing tooth. The procedure is used in similar circumstances to a removable partial denture (plates). The advantage of a bridge is that it is cemented in place and does not need to be removed. During the treatment, the abutment teeth are reduced with a crown preparation to allow for the high strength framework material and veneering ceramic to be put in place. This dental restoration procedure is an alternative option to replace a missing tooth when a patient is not a suitable candidate for either a surgical implant or removable dentures.

At North Sydney Dentistry, our dental bridge cost starts around $4,350 per tooth. Hence it is recommended to book in a consultation appointment for a full mouth examination and treatment plan in order to know the definite quote for your dental bridge.

If you are still unsure on which option is right for you, please contact us on 8090 1108 or email us at to speak with a member of our expert dental team.

**5 Year Limited Warranty: Our 5 year limited warranty period only applies for patients who return for twice a year routine check-up and dental cleaning at our practices throughout the life of the warranty period. Applies only to damage caused to Dental Crown.
