Restore damaged teeth with crowns
A dental crown is a shell that fits over an entire damaged tooth that is at risk of breaking by covering and protecting it. Each crown is made individually to be virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Crowns are used for teeth that are cracked fractured, discoloured, damaged by decay, oddly shaped or damaged by grinding.
Crowns are also a common solution for protecting teeth do not have sufficient structure left as a result of large cavities or weak fillings. Additionally, crowns are used to hold a dental bridge in place. Dental crowns are a practical solution to a wide range of problems, and we encourage you to contact us so we can discuss your options.
What is a bridge?
Bridges are a combination of crowns and artificial teeth that are used to fill a gap left by one or more missing teeth. The replacement teeth complete your smile and restore functionality so that you can chew foods with ease and comfort. There are two types of bridges: fixed bridges, and removable bridges. Fixed bridges are bonded or cemented to natural teeth or implants. Removable bridges are not as secure, but can be taken out and cleaned after meals.
Is a bridge the right solution for me?
If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, we recommend a bridge to replace the missing teeth. The bridge will look very much like your natural teeth, and it will allow you to have normal chewing function again.
We want to do everything possible to ensure that damaged or missing teeth do not negatively impact your remaining teeth and dental health. If you are in need a crown or bridge please contact us to get started on your restoration plan.
