Adelaide Smile Centre visits Uluru

Practice Principal and Practice Manager Rocco and Kristina Bueti from Adelaide Smile Centre had the pleasure of visiting Uluru last month to attend a BUPA Dental Leaders Conference. The two learned about the sacred history of the rock at the nearby Uluru-Kata Aboriginal Cultural Centre and listened to ancestral stories of the Anangu people.

“It was a great experience, definitely a place I was able to tick off the bucket list,” Mrs Bueti explained when asked about her time in the red centre.

The two took a short break away from their dental practice in Findon, South Australia and indulged in the customary ‘field of lights’ show and ‘dinner under the stars’.

Bupa members’ first provider

As a Bupa members first clinic, Dr Rocco Bueti and his team are always looking at ways to add value and improve their customer service to patients.

Bupa members first providers are accredited to National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) standards. Meaning, that their work is guaranteed and their patients receive the highest quality of care.

Our health needs can sometimes go untreated, so a break away can be just what the doctor ordered, providing a much-needed reprieve from the daily grind.

Just as a holiday can sometimes help improve the body’s overall health and wellbeing*, paying attention to your oral health can too.

Adelaide Smile Centre understands the link between good oral health care and overall health*. If you’re in need of an oral health check-up or have concerns about your teeth and gums, contact the team to make an appointment on 8347 2222 or submit an online enquiry.

Crowns 101: What they are and why you need them.  

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap which completely covers the existing damaged or broken tooth. They are fitted over your natural teeth and are the same size, shape and colour.

Dental crowns are commonly placed to treat various issues in dentistry. If your dentist recommends a crown for one or more of your teeth, it's important that you understand what they are, how they help, and how to best look after them.

What are crowns?

A dental crown is a custom made tooth-shaped cap which covers the entire tooth’s surface – not just the top of it. It is essentially a hollow tooth that sits over your existing tooth, fitting like a glove and looking just like a natural tooth.

Once your dentist has placed your custom made crown, it will look, feel, and work just like a normal tooth, so you will quickly forget that it's there.

At Adelaide Smile Centre, we provide our patients with same-day crowns, using CEREC (Ceramic Reconstruction) technology. This technology allows your dentist to prepare and scan the tooth to be crowned, then electronically send the scan to our in-house CEREC milling machine which will produce the custom made crown in one visit. This one appointment will take 60-90 minutes. To find out more about CEREC, please visit www.onlyonevisit.com. 

Additionally, when one or more teeth have been lost, a dental bridge can be placed to fill the gap. The missing teeth are replaced by individual crowns which are also anchored by crowns on existing healthy teeth at each end of the gap.

Why might you need a crown?

Crowns need to be placed for many reasons. Generally, a crown is used when a tooth is damaged in some way, but can still be saved. The crown will be placed on this tooth to make it fully functional, therefore restoring its size, shape, strength and appearance. 

Common reasons for requiring a dental crown include:
- after root canal treatment
- large multi-surface restorations
- broken teeth and loss of tooth structure
- brittle or prone to fracture
- hairline fractures

How do you look after a crown?

A dental crown can last a lifetime. However, you need to look after it as best you can to ensure its longevity.

You can brush and floss around your crown the same way as you would your natural teeth. This means brushing gently twice a day and flossing to remove any plaque and food debris in between. You will also need to maintain regular dental visits, during which your care provider will assess the crown to ensure it’s still in good condition.

For further information or to book an appointment, please contact our friendly Front Office Coordinators on 8347 2222.
