Great solutions to protect or replace
weakened or missing teeth.
With time, our teeth can possibly get damaged by decay, injuries or just general wear. As a result, your teeth can lose its shape or become weakened and susceptible to fracture. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that are cemented over the visible portion of your tooth to restore its size, strength, shape and appearance.
A dental bridge have the same principle of a crown, but it used to bridge the gap of missing teeth. Therefore, like a bridge, the teeth on either side of the gap are crowned and subsequently joined in middle.
Here are some examples of why a crown or a bridge might be a good fit for you.
Crowns and bridges can be made from different types of material such as ceramic, zirconia, precious metal, etc... The type of material used depends on the tooth in question and the desired clinical result.
The treatments are often done under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort and can be done on natural teeth or on implants. Please ask our dentists if any of your teeth would need a crown or a bridge
