Porcelain Crowns and Bridges in Aurora, ON
As we grow older, most of us may experience tooth loss due to decay, trauma or natural ageing. Restorative dentistry has advanced considerably, and there are now several options that can help restore your smile.
Our reliable cosmetic dentist in Aurora uses porcelain crowns to cap damaged teeth and bridges to seal gaps in the dental arch.
Metal and gold crowns are suitable for back teeth restorations, but their colour is the main drawback. Porcelain crowns combine aesthetics, durability and strength and are used to cap front teeth. They may not be ideal for restoring rear teeth where chewing forces are high. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns offer added strength without compromising on aesthetics.
Porcelain crowns and bridges in Aurora, ON, are dental prosthetics used to replace missing, damaged, decayed or dislodged teeth.
Advantages of Porcelain Crowns
Dental-grade porcelain is a versatile material that can be shaped and sized to mimic natural teeth. Although they are strong, metal crowns are heavy on teeth and quite noticeable when you smile or laugh. Porcelain crowns at Aurora Dentistry are comparatively lightweight and feel comfortable.
They also hide the damaged or unattractive part of the tooth and match the natural tooth colour of the surrounding bone. Lastly, porcelain crowns are metal-free and are not associated with the potentially dangerous effects of mercury found in silver crowns. Once our experienced dentist in Aurora, ON, Dr. Eric Rouah, cements the porcelain crown in place, our patients can speak, chew, bite or smile confidently.
Benefits of Bridges
There are different types of dental bridges, including traditional models, cantilever, Maryland and implant-supported bridges. Porcelain bridges can easily last for more than five years, and their glass-like translucency of porcelain bridges allows them to blend in with your dental arch, resulting in a natural, pleasing appearance.
Wearing a dental bridge allows you to speak, chew and smile, prevents the facial structure from sagging and stops surrounding teeth from rotating into the gap.
