Restore Your Smile With Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are both restorative dental treatments that can help to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Wearing dental crowns or bridges allows you to speak and chew properly, prevents the facial structure from sagging and stops surrounding teeth from rotating into the gap.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can change your smile's appearance – and preserve your oral health.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over a decayed or damaged tooth to restore its original shape and shape. Crowns help strengthen and change the appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
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 aesthetics.
A dental bridge is a restoration that 'bridges' a gap of missing teeth in your mouth. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.
There are different types of dental bridges, including traditional models, cantilever, Maryland and implant-supported bridges. Porcelain bridges may last for more than five years with proper care and their glass-like translucency allows them to blend in with your dental arch, resulting in a natural-looking smile.
