Fresh Family Dental Offers Crowns, Veneers and Dental Implants Gold Coast
Getting a dentist to fit your teeth with crowns on the Gold Coast can be a confusing process if you’re unfamiliar with what a crown is and why you might need one. As you might well know, there is a protective outer layer covering your teeth called enamel. Over time when this layer is not given enough care and attention, the tooth underneath can be damaged. Crowns are one type of treatment which protect the tooth and prevents more damage from occurring.
Essentially, our Dr Andrea will create custom caps to place over the tooth that are as comfortable as natural tooth. We may prescribe a crown (or onlay) for a number of reasons, some of the most common being if the tooth is worn down, broken, or weak, or if there is a crack or cavity in the tooth too large for a regular filling.

Gold Coast Veneers
If your aim is to solve some discolouration and shape issues, then you could consider getting veneers, which are essentially a thin mould that is attached to the front of a tooth. In the case of your tooth being chipped, the approach your dentist may take is to reconstruct and strengthen your tooth by making a filling. There are two main kinds of veneers – porcelain and composite – both of which are done in house by the team at Fresh Family Dental in Burleigh Heads. Common services which are also carried out in-house include general dental, children’s dental, emergency dental, teeth whitening, and root canals.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Our team of professional Gold Coast dentists make top quality Porcelain veneers out of a material that is shaped like a thin wafer, which is then designed to personally and perfectly fit over your tooth. They will improve discolouration on your teeth, making them a more natural colour and can also enhance the structural strength of your tooth.
Sizing from anywhere between 0.3mm and 1mm, our expert team at Fresh Family Dental will hand-shape each veneer to ensure the fit is as perfect. With veneers, there is no one-size-fits-all approach meaning the utmost care and dedication is given to each individual product. There is no other way to recreate the natural look of a real tooth.
What Are Composite Veneers
In some cases, composite veneers may be the way to go and are a more affordable alternative compared to porcelain ones. Composite veneers are made from the same material used for white dental fillings and don’t need two sessions to be moulded and made.
The process is a bit simpler for composite veneers as opposed to porcelain veneers. The tooth is cleaned and lightly prepared before the dentist applies an adhesive which will be used to fasten the veneer to the tooth. The composite veneer will then be placed, shaped and polished. We sometimes suggest returning for an additional polishing appointment about a week later to make minor adjustments and check in on how you are adapting to your new teeth shape.
