Unfortunately, our teeth go through a lot of wear and tear throughout the years and may eventually need the help from different dental restorative options. Our highly trained dental team at Dental Health Centre provide experienced dental care to patients in the area looking to improve or correct their smiles. Dental crowns and bridges are a common and effective method of correcting teeth. Continue reading to learn more about these treatments.
Dental crowns are used as a cap over a damaged or injured tooth, similar to a false tooth. They can also be attached to a dental implant after the procedure. Your dentist will take an impression of the tooth prior to installing a dental crown and customize its size, shape, and color to better match the rest of the smile. With proper care, dental crowns can last for several years in a patient’s mouth.
Dental bridges are a good option for individuals looking to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge appliance attaches to the two teeth on either side of the missing spot. They can be used as permanent or removable devices. Your dentist may recommend a removable dental bridge if a dental implant is not possible. If the patient chooses a permanent bridge, then the dentist will anchor them with the use of dental implants. This provides a secure foundation for the smile.
Call your dentist to schedule a consultation to determine which option is best for your situation and needs. Our aim is to provide each patient with personal, high-quality care that will leave them with a healthy smile and body.
