Crowns and Bridges
When a tooth is compromised by decay or damage, we may suggest a crown. This restoration, made in a lab from fine dental porcelain, will blend seamlessly with your teeth, return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and maintain your all-white smile.
Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of short appointments. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Be sure to see us every six months for professional cleanings and a preventive exam.
- Dental crowns are a tooth-like protective "cap" that is placed over a badly decayed, damaged or cracked tooth. They can also be used to support a bridge and cover discoloured or misshapened teeth.
- A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.
