After the scan, the dentist creates the design. They single out the design model and fit the crown into a cerec block. We send it to the machine and it moulds the crown. It goes into a furnace for it to get solid. If you wish to make an appointment give us a call on (02) 8383 1400

CEREC Crowns

 

Step 1: Digital Impression


In the chair for about 30-60 mins to scan the mouth for a digital impression. Previously before this technology came about, we were taking gewy impressions that often made you uncomfortable.
Now, this has all changed, we take digital impressions that accurately take scans that allows the dentist to create a new crown on a computer where the design is then created in a machine.

Step 2: Design of the Filling/Crown


While you take a break and do some last minute shopping for mum, dad. Kids, husband, wife or even for yourself. The dentist creates a design of a filling to suit your teeth on a computer. Once the design is completed on the computer it is sent to the machine to create to filling/crown

Step 3: Creation of the Filling/Crown


The machine, takes about 1 hour – 1.5hours to create and furnace the filling/crown that needs to replace your tooth. In this time, the dentist checks that the crown is made to suit you and check that the design is polished so that it can sit comfortably in your mouth with no rough edges.

Step 4: Insert


In less than 4 hours, we can get you back in the chair and insert the filling/crown. Check that the fit is comfortable. And the best part of this treatment is that there is No Needles. No Gewy Impressions, No Waiting Another Week for the Insert. Just convenient one day treatment. 

Step 5: Post Treatment


Part One: Care Taking
Now that the filling and crown is inserted just like any other dental procedure it is important to make sure that it is taken care of at home. Floss in between to make sure there aren’t any food, (not just the crown but ALL teeth) be careful when you chew hard lollies.
Part Two: Follow Up Appointments
It is just as important that you come in for dental follow ups to make sure dentists can track and see if any bacteria or minute cracks or fractures have happened. 6 monthly cleans, come get it at Abc Dental call us on (02) 8383 1400.

The latest in dental implant technology - guided implants

Dental Implants can be a solution for one or more missing teeth an are a permanent treatment option

 

Why choose dental implants?

1. Improved appearance

Loss of teeth can affect a person's facial appearance. One of the best thing about dental implants is that they are designed to integrate with the body. This means they prevent bone deterioration and rejuvenate a persons facial appearance. 

2. Renewed confidence

They help the confidence lost with missing teeth. Since dental implants look and feel as natural as real teeth, people can stop being conscious about their appearance and smile without any hesitation. 

3. No harm to natural teeth

Another amazing thing about dental implants is that unlike bridges and dentures, there's no cutting down or grinding the perfectly healthy neighboring teeth. There's no compromising on the long-term health of the real teeth. 

4. Improved oral health

Since natural teeth are not affected by the dental implant treatment, the overall long-term oral health is improved. Also, as there are no toxic adhesive or metal used to hold them in place, there is no risk of effects or allergies

5. Easy after care

Getting dental implants is convenience at its best. They not only look and feel natural, their functionalities and care are pretty much the same. Unlike dentures, there's no extra care required like removing and cleaning them separately. 

Guided Dental Implants at ABC Dental

At ABC Dental, we have invested in the latest technology to provide "Guided Implants". This solution allows a dental implant to be planned virtually, then accurately placed in the most safe predictable and efficient manner. With guided implants, not only can the implant be placed for the most aesthetic outcome, but it will also result in a shorter recovery time and less post-operative discomfort. Here is a quick contrast between traditional implants vs guided implants.

Traditional Implants

  • Little / no planning before implant appointment
  • Cut up Gums to insert implant
  • Low predictability / consistency
  • Operator variability 
  • Post-operative discomfort

Guided Dental Implants

  • Significant planning before implant appointment
  • Key hole surgery
  • Increased precision / accuracy with surgical guides
  • No operator variability
  • Shorter recover time / little to no post-operative discomfort

At ABC Dental, we offer guided implants with all the added benefits but at a cost that is no more than traditional implants. A single posterior implant is $4500, and a single anterior implant is $4900. Prices includes cone beam CT, surgical guides, abutment and crown.

Having wisdom teeth pain?

Wisdom teeth make their first appearance between the ages of 16 and 25 and after that, they’re nothing but trouble.

If they emerge impacted or angled, they cause painswellinggum infections, or even decay on surrounding teeth. But because wisdom teeth removal procedures can force you through weeks of recovery, many busy professionals (or even those who fear anaesthesia) will put off the procedure, treating the symptoms with antibiotics and painkillers without addressing the real issue: The wisdom teeth.

Keep your natural teeth with Root Canal Therapy

What is Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy (or endodontics) is required when an injury or large cavity damages the tooth's root. The root becomes infected or inflamed. 

You may need Root Canal Therapy if you have....

  • Intense tooth pain
  • Severe toot sensitivity
  • Traumatic injury
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • A recurring abscess on the gum line
  • A crack in a filling 

Root Canal Therapy Process

Root Canal Therapy can often be performed in one or two appointments, and involves the following steps:

  1. The tooth is numbed by your dentist. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber
  2. Dental files are used to clean the infection and unhealthy pulp out of the canals.
  3. The canals are filled with a permanent material. This help keep the canals free of infections or contamination. 
  4. The tooth then needs to be restored with a crown to protect the tooth and restore it to full function

At ABC Dental, most root canal therapy can be completed in one appointment with our latest, state of the art, rotary endodontic equipment. 

 

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Saves your natural tooth

  • Less expensive long term option vs alternatives of having the tooth extracted and replaced with a dental implant or bridge
  • protects other teeth from excessive wear or stain
  • Improves appearance of your tooth
  • Efficient Chewing
  • Less treatment time involved vs alternatives of having tooth extracted and replaced with dental implant or bridge. 

What if Root Canal Therapy is not completed?

Unfinished root canal treatment can lead to further complications down the road. Importantly, the tooth that has been treated with root canal therpay should be restored with a crown to protect the tooth. You should not chew or bite on the treated tooth until it has been restored. If the tooth remains uncrowned, it can break easily, and may eventually have to be extracted altogether. 

Improve your smile

How to choose a quality dental practice

QUALITY ASSURANCE FOR ADDITIONAL PEACE OF MIND

At ABC Dental, one of our main priorities is peace of mind for both you and your family. We understand that dental visits can be anxiety inducing for patients of all ages and as such, we strive to do everything possible to put you at ease during your visit.

For us, achieving voluntary Practice Accreditation reflects our ongoing effort to make patients feel comfortable and well cared for. And as one of the few practices who have secured this accomplishment, you can feel confident choosing our us for your needs, no matter what they may be.

WHAT IS THE PRACTICE ACCREDITATION?

Our Practice Accreditation is an initiative from the Australian Dental Association issued to practices that successfully undergo a Quality in Practice (QIP) assessment. The result is an Accreditation that notifies patients that our offices are compliant to the National Safety and Quality in Health Service Standards (NSQHS).

CONTACT OUR PRACTICE FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

If you would like to learn more about our Accreditation or other qualifications, please call us on 02 8383 1400 or email us today.

Our team looks forward to making you feel comfortable and confident at any of our five convenient clinics in Bondi Junction, North Ryde, Miranda, Pitt Street CBD or Westfield Chatswood and providing the best dental care possible.

Bridges vs Crowns vs Veneers

6. Bridges vs Crowns vs Veneers

Often there are dental treatments that we come across and dentists seem to have very little time to explain everything in detail. Well all the dentists at ABC DENTAL are have a minimum of 30 min appointments to explain everything with you. But we want you to have a little bit more information to search up and what we offer.

A bridge is just like an extended crown over two teeth and acts as a bridge to cover the space between two teeth. Image one above.

A crown is a seal over an existing tooth that usually is to protect the natural tooth rather than extracting it. Good dentists would rather save the tooth for as long as possible, having a crown would probably be the last stage to save the tooth after a root canal.

Veneers are a cap around a tooth usually for cosmetic purposes. All those celebrities with the perfect white smile would have had a Veneer.

Where can you go to get these treatments in ONE DAY? ABC Dental, probably is the only dentist in Sydney that offers treatment in a shopping centre and also can do SAME DAY crowns. Usually dentists need to do a gewy impression and send it off to a lab and just this process takes at least a week. Here at ABC DENTAL we do digital impressions and the machine creates your personal bridge, crown or veneer and can usually be inserted 90mins after you do your digital impression.
We offer these services across all our practices, you can call us on (02) 8383 1400 anytime for more information.

TRANSLATING COMMON PROBLEMS INTO DESIRABLE DENTAL EXPERIENCES

 

A Story From Our Principal Dental Surgeon, Dr. David Lin

When I consider the ABC Dental difference, I see how it is reflected in our empathetic, attentive, and professional approach to dental care. We believe in offering one precious thing many dental practices won’t and that’s time. Specifically, it’s the time to get to know patients, their needs, and services that best meet these needs.

This approach is based on my own dental experiences throughout my life and I would like to share how this has influenced the ABC Dental difference:

As a child, I suffered from various dental disorders and experienced many dental procedures. These experiences revealed qualities that not only make dental visits difficult, but daunting as well.

 

 

My memories are quite vivid and include flashbacks of visiting dental offices located in remote backstreets, making them impossible to park at or access via public transport. If the weather was poor, we would sometimes end up at the office half-wet, making the experience even more unpleasant.

It is with these memories in mind that I designed ABC Dental to eliminate common issues and instead, foster positive experiences for adults and children alike.

Our refocused approach to dentistry means we consider each patient as a whole while designing every element of our practice with you in mind. It is for this reason that we’ve chosen locations in Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Sydney, and Macquarie Centre. This ensures that each practice is readily accessible no matter the weather, your location, or public transport options.

Additionally, we’re part of an allied health team to ensure you receive healthcare beyond just dentistry. This means you can easily visit allied health specialists nearby our practices to ensure each element of your health is provided for. Beyond general care, we also offer dental specialists to assist with all of your needs.

Our promise to our patients is to provide always better care. And through our history, practice design, standards of treatment, and four convenient locations in Bondi Junction, North Ryde, Miranda, and Pitt Street CBD, you can access just that.

It’s my guarantee to you.

How do get those stains off my teeth?

Do you drink coffee, tea, red wine? Are you seeing your teeth getting stained or changing color. This can be easily dealt with, so there's no need to put up with it!

Drinking / eating dark colored liquids, most commonly coffee, tea, red wine can cause staining of your teeth. Smoking is also another contributor towards staining, not withstanding other health consequences. 

 

Teeth staining can be easily removed with a clean from your dentist. These stains cannot be removed by tooth brushing, and special cleaning equipment must be used to remove them. At ABC Dental, in addition to the standard equipment at most dental offices, we also use the prophy jet

This device can easily, and comfortable remove stains from your teeth, unlike conventional ultrasonic cleaning. Prophy jet uses a combination of air, water and specialized cleaning powder, to gently remove staining on teeth.

Don't put up with those unaesthetic stains on your teeth. Teeth cleaning is a must. ABC Dental charges $159 for cleaning and checkup. This comes with 2 x-rays, and also professional flouride application. We are open 7 days, and have locations in Westfield Bondi Junction, Westfield Sydney, Westfield Miranda, Westfield Chatswood and Macquarie Centre. Book online, or call us on 8383 1400.
