Dental Crowns and Bridges
Overview of Crowns
A crown is a type of restoration that covers and encases the entire visible portion of a damaged or weakened tooth. It is essentially a cap or cover that is placed over the tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and functionality. Crowns are commonly used to treat teeth that have been severely decayed, cracked, or broken, as well as teeth that have undergone root canal therapy or have large fillings that compromise the structural integrity of the tooth.
At Cherrybank our crowns are typically made from high quality materials such as zirconia porcelain or gold and are custom-designed to fit over the prepared tooth. The process of getting a dental crown involves several steps, including preparing the tooth, taking a digital scan of the tooth and surrounding teeth, and placing a temporary crown while the permanent crown is being made. Once the permanent crown is ready, it is cemented or bonded in place over the tooth, restoring its appearance and function. Crowns can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
Overview of Bridges
A bridge is a type of restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, that are anchored in place by crowns or other types of dental support structures on one or more of the neighbouring teeth. The bridge is custom-designed to fit your mouth and match the color and shape of the natural teeth on either side.
There are several different types of bridges, including conventional bridges, which are supported by dental crowns on adjacent teeth, and implant-supported bridges, which are anchored in place by dental implants.
Dental bridges can help to prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position and can also improve your overall oral health by restoring the ability to chew and speak properly. With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last for many years.
At Cherrybank Dental Spa, we can advise you if a crown or a bridge would be suitable for your mouth to restore health, function and appearance.
