Same-Day Dentistry At Hills Dental Design
Thanks to the E4D system available at Hills Dental Design, we are able to fabricate crowns and other restorations in-office in a single day. Depending on the treatment required, your crown or bridge can be designed and placed without the need for laboratory assistance or multiple trips to our Pennant Hills office.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is designed to replace the visible part of the damaged tooth for different conditions like:
Here at Hills Dental Design, we custom design your crown out of porcelain and ceramic materials using the E4D system to specifically mimic your original tooth in both colour and shape.
The new replacement not only has a similar shine and texture of a natural tooth but it also has the same functionality. Cared for appropriately, your crown could have the capacity to last you a lifetime.

What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is used to replace more than one tooth. Our team at Hills Dental Design focuses specifically on implant supported bridges as a treatment that provides the patient with a less damaging and longer lasting treatment option.
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
An implant supported bridge utilises both dental implants and crowns to create a foundation for the teeth that are in need of replacement. Depending on the number of teeth that need replacement the implant supported bridge uses one or more implants to secure the imitation teeth in place.
This method is favoured by our team as implant supported bridges do not require enamel loss or metal anchoring to the adjacent teeth. The treatment simply uses imitation tooth roots to secure the crowns in place and assists the natural gums to remain full and healthy.
Dental implants are not suitable for all patients. During your consultation in our Pennant Hills office we will assess the density of your gums and bones and health prior to your treatment.
A traditional bridge uses crowns to literally bridge the gap between the teeth. This technique involves the removal of natural crowns from the adjacent teeth as a support for the replacement.
Maryland Bonded Bridges
This alternative form of tooth replacement uses a crown with metal bonded “wings” custom designed to attach to the adjacent teeth. The wings act as a support for the crown and are permanently fixed to the teeth.
Choosing The Best Dental Bridge For You
When it comes to single tooth replacement, the best option would be a dental implant and crown. This kind of replacement is better for your natural smile and offers long lasting results. However, dental implants are not always suitable for everyone.
During your consultation at Hills Dental Design, we will assess your smile and ensure you are getting the best possible treatment available for you. Contact our Pennant Hills office for more information about custom crowns and bridges!
