Restore Your Smile
Our dentists recommend crowns and bridges as a non-surgical treatment.
This can help restore our patients' teeth and replace missing teeth in order to prevent future damage to their smiles.
The Difference Between Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that fit over a natural tooth or dental implant. While crowns can repair a damaged tooth, bridges replace missing teeth.
Bridges are is held firmly in place by the teeth surrounding the gap in your smile or by dental implants. A bridge is permanent and cannot be removed.
If your teeth are damaged by cracks or decay, or if you are missing teeth, a dental crown or bridge may be the right option for you.
How Dental Bridges Work
Missing teeth leave empty space in your mouth. This gap may cause the surrounding teeth to begin to shift out of place.
This can cause you discomfort, an increased risk of gum disease, tooth decay and the loss of additional teeth.
Your dentist can replace these empty spaces with dental bridges. These fixed restorations can restore your smile and help your face maintain its shape.
How Dental Crowns Work
A dentist is able to cover a damaged or discoloured tooth to its original size and shape.
This will help reinforce the strength and durability of your tooth, protecting it from further damage or loss.
Crowns can hold a cracked tooth together and prevent further damage since it is made from strong, durable porcelain. They help to strengthen and protect the structure of your other teeth, serving as anchors for dental bridges.
