Dental Crowns & Bridges Specialists in Toowoomba

Repair and restore

Our focus at Toowoomba Specialist Dental is on saving your teeth whenever possible. If you have a missing tooth, we can bridge the gap with a dental bridge and if your tooth is damaged we can repair the tooth with a dental crown. These treatments allow you to continue eating and talking with the confidence of a natural-looking smile.

Crown & Bridge Treatments

What are Crowns & Bridges?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped casing or cap that is precision made to cover the entire visible surface of a damaged single tooth. Crowns are securely fixed in place, unlike removable devices such as dentures. Crowns are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and are designed to look and feel like a natural tooth, complementing your smile.

Commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge is a fixed dental structure, anchored by two healthy teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap. Acting as anchors, the two outer teeth are capped to secure the middle ‘bridge’ tooth in place. Just like crowns, dental bridges are made to match the size, shape and colour of your other teeth.

What are Crowns made from?

Dental crowns are most commonly made of porcelain and zirconia that can be matched to the colour and texture of your teeth. Some crowns are made using a metal cap with porcelain veneers and are known as PFM (porcelain fused to metal) or VMK. Temporary crowns are crafted from resin.


At TSD, we use only the finest quality materials, often from Japan and Germany that are then handcrafted right here in Australia to enable us to get the perfect match for your smile.

Crown and Bridge Procedures

Crown and bridge procedures are completed over two appointments. The first visit will be 1-2 hours duration, during which your tooth will be prepared, we will take an impression and glue on a temporary resin crown, allowing you to eat as normal. 
 The impression is then sent to the lab and a crown is custom made specifically for that tooth. Two weeks later at your second appointment, your new crown will be cemented into place.

Aftercare for Dental Crowns

A crowned tooth doesn’t need any special care, but it is important that you keep it clean just as you would your natural teeth with twice daily brushing and daily flossing. The average lifespan of a crown is 15 years, however with diligent maintenance, crowns can last over 20 years. Seeing your Toowoomba dentist and hygienist for regular checkups and professional cleans will significantly increase the long term success of your crown treatment.
