ENJOY A SPECIALIST LEVEL OF CARE
At Sydney Prosthodontic Group, we don’t just treat teeth, we treat people! We understand that people don’t just want implants or crowns per se, they want functional and beautiful looking teeth to improve their lives, to improve their confidence, to eat whatever they want, to be themselves, to laugh out loud, and to live life to the fullest without being held back. Hence our motto, “improving lives, one smile at a time”!
From the start of your journey to completion, we plan and execute treatment with you in mind. Our focus is not only to achieve the best long-term outcome but also how to get you there in the most comfortable and ideal manner. We take into consideration your lifestyle, work commitments, social requirements, financial limitations and anxiety level. All aspects of your comfort and convenience are carefully considered and maximised throughout the process. This is one of the reasons why our patients are extremely satisfied with our services.
Our specialist prosthodontists offer a comprehensive range of personalised treatment solutions. Whether you are looking for treatment of a single tooth or of a full-mouth dental makeover, our prosthodontists will deliver the result that you envisage. There is often more than one solution to a problem in life and similarly with modern dentistry, there are many options. Our prosthodontists will discuss your individually-tailored treatment plan in detail, explaining the pros and cons of all treatment options in determining the plan that best suits your needs.
In this section we have listed a few common problems and treatment options that we offer. Please be mindful that not all options are suitable for everyone.
A dental crown is like a cap that is glued entirely over a tooth. It is often used when a tooth is severely damaged to improve its strength and appearance. At a dental specialist level, our prosthodontists can often work with very little remaining tooth structure under the gum and still achieve an excellent long-term result.
A dental crown can be glued over your own tooth or screwed into the supporting dental implant to provide a tooth-like structure for function and aesthetics.
Dental crowns can be made of ceramics, metal or a combination of both. All materials used to construct dental crowns are of the highest international quality combined with the best aesthetics. All laboratory work is hand-crafted in Sydney by only the finest ceramists under Dr. Lee’s protocols.
Similar to dental crowns, dental bridges are essentially fused multiple dental crowns designed to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing.
A dental bridge can be glued over your own teeth or screwed into the supporting dental implants surrounding the empty space to provide teeth-like structure for function and aesthetics.
As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Our specialists will help you to decide the best material and design based on the location and number of missing teeth, stability of the neighbouring teeth, functional and aesthetic requirements as well as cost.
FULL MOUTH WORN DOWN TEETH RESTORATION
Worn down teeth could be due to many years of teeth grinding and/or acidic erosion. While these teeth may be heavily damaged, often they still can be fixed using durable restorations to restore them to their original height and appearance.
There are a number of dental materials and options available to achieve this. By combining expertise and a lot of experience, our prosthodontists can recommend the best option to provide you with the desired long-term result.
Your help in the management of teeth grinding or acidic erosion is paramount to the long-term success of this treatment. We will help you to identify the cause for your teeth becoming worn down, but we need your help to control these factors in the long run. Without such control, no dental treatment is expected to last irrespective of what material was used and how well it was made. If tooth enamel (the hardest material in the human body) has been destroyed over time, without changing our lifestyle, what makes us think our dental material is going to fare better?
