5 Reasons Why to Choose Us

Children’s Dentistry

What are stainless steel crowns?

Stainless steel crowns are metal caps that offer an alternative way to repair a child’s decayed molar (back tooth). A cap is made to fit the exact size and shape of an entire tooth with deep cavities, so is hard to lose or damage. The surface is smooth, easy to clean and should last longer than the filling.

As dentists working closely with children, we have observed the changes in dental disease appearing in children. The most noticeable change has been in the increase in decay, particularly in high-risk groups.

When a large surface of the tooth structure is affected by decay, prefabricated stainless steel crowns provide the most optimal and successful form of restoration.

LILLYBROOK DENTAL

What are the benefits of stainless steel crowns?

Stainless steel crowns are given for baby teeth with large amounts of decay or a cavity, as this prevents extraction of teeth. However, decayed teeth may need to be removed if infected or for other reasons. That way a space is kept in the child’s mouth awaiting the eruption of permanent teeth, when the baby tooth falls out naturally. The procedure of applying the crowns is similar to having a regular filling.

LILLYBROOK DENTAL

What happens after the procedure to place stainless steel crowns?

After the procedure, as with any local anaesthetic, the child’s lips and cheek may feel numb for a time and biting a bit unusual for a few days. This will pass. The colour of the metal may make the gums appear blue, due to the metal under the tissue.
Even when the decayed tooth has been successfully treated, it is important for the child to brush their teeth regularly, as usual, even if the gums bleed slightly, as good oral hygiene is necessary to protect the rest of the child’s teeth from decay.

While the stainless steel crown will protect the treated tooth from further decay, it is important the child not be given sticky foods that might move the crown out of place. A nutritious diet and regular check-ups with your family dental partner Lillybrook Dental will establish good oral health patterns for life.

Testimonials

I’ve been to many different dentists over the years, and I would have to say that this is up there with the best! The staff are so professional, and yet so very friendly. The dentist himself, was also very friendly and did such a great job. I would highly recommend this dental surgery

Jodie

I can’t recommend Dr Raj and the team at Lillybrook Dental enough! I was 35 weeks pregnant and developed a terrible toothache (the worst timing!), they fit me in quickly and did everything they could to save the tooth, giving me all options and no pressure. I ended up needing a root canal and crown and was very upset and worried about the pain, they reassured me and despite the outcome for my tooth I had a great experience. The crown has been fitted and I am so happy with the end product. Highly recommend!

Ashley

Having been to various practices over time, and addressing issues with a “patch-up” approach, it was time to consult with a Dentist who could advise on a treatment plan that would provide longterm results. A friend recommended Lillybrook Dental. After a very thorough initial appointment Dr Raj put together a staged treatment plan to restore my teeth to their former glory. Six months later, thanks to Dr Raj and his team, I have my smile back. Most importantly I can eat the food I want without any fear of causing days of pain to my teeth or gums. I am so glad I put my trust in Lillybrook Dental. Thanks!

Steve

From the moment I walked in until the moment I left I felt very cared for by all of the staff I encountered. Everything was explained in detail as to what my options were and what the best choice would be for my treatmemt. Extremely accommodating and so kind, I felt completely at ease. With payment options such as Afterpay, Zippay and Openpay available, making it much more comfortable when it comes time to pay the bill.

Kerrie

I am a very anxious patient and Dr Raji is very calming and gentle in her care with me. She is also very patient with me and would highly recommend coming to Lillybrook Dental Surgery as the whole crew is lovely !

Hayley

Dr Raj and his team are always gentle, professional and very efficient. My husband and I have both had extractions done and Raj is so proficient at this.

The team are so kind and assuring as well which helps you feel calm. We totally recommend them for all your family dental care.

Melissa

I have nothing put praise for the friendliness of Ena on the front desk she is just the right person for the job. Then we have Dr Raj who has been very kind and gentle with doing any dental work on my teeth. He explains every bit of work that needs to be done in layman terms which is great and his dental nurse is very caring.


Thanks for the great experience and will continue visiting your Surgery .
