Crown & Bridge
A crown, often called a cap, is an artificial covering for part or all of the visible part of your tooth, or dental implant. Crowns are generally made of porcelain and/ or metal alloys. You may need a crown if you have had root canal treatment, have large fillings in a tooth, a broken tooth, severely stained or misaligned teeth, or a dental implant. With such extensive work done to teeth, a crown will protect the weakened teeth from further damage.
A bridge is an artificial substitute that replaces one or more of your natural teeth. Also known as a “fixed partial denture,” it is permanently anchored to your neighbouring natural teeth (or dental implants). Replacing missing teeth is important to preventing other teeth from drifting out of line, which can cause jaw problems and affect your bite.
Crowns and bridges are part of our smile enhancement treatment options that may be recommended depending on the circumstances.
