What are Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are both restorative dental treatments that can help restore your smile's normal function and appearance.
They can fill the gaps left by missing teeth, help you maintain your natural facial shape, and restore your ability to speak and chew properly.
Our dentists can improve the appearance of your smile and preserve your oral health by repairing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth with a dental crown or bridge.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are fitted over a decayed or damaged tooth to restore its original shape, size, and colour. Dental crowns help to strengthen and disguise a broken tooth that would otherwise be lost.
Crowns are normally extremely durable and can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and if properly cared for, they can last a decade or more.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration that 'bridges' a gap in your mouth caused by missing teeth. The bridge, which is made up of one or more artificial teeth, is attached to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.
A bridge keeps your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which can lead to more serious dental issues like gum disease.
