Crowns & Bridges
Natural Looking To Compliment Your Smile.
Our goal at Heathridge Dental Centre is to keep your natural teeth healthy and intact for as long as possible, however, over the years, teeth can start to degrade. Whether it’s years of sugar addiction or an unfortunate accident, it’s not uncommon to break or lose a tooth (or teeth) at some point in your life. The important thing is what you do about it. Leaving teeth broken will only lead to further complications down the road. It’s important to restore your smile as soon as possible so you can get back to living a full, healthy life with a natural smile.
Crowns & Bridges Explained
Crowns are caps that cover the teeth, restoring them to their natural size, shape, and colour. Crowns are indicated when there is a need to strengthen teeth that are mechanically weakened. If you have a tooth that is broken or badly decayed and is past the point of repairing with a filling, inlay or onlay, you may need a crown to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. Our crowns are tooth-shaped coverings made from durable, natural-looking tooth coloured porcelain to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
Crowns do require some preparation of the natural tooth to ensure the best fit and strongest bond.
If you’re missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, you may be in need of a bridge. Bridges generally consist of one or more fabricated teeth, anchored to surrounding teeth on either side with the help of crowns. To fix your bridge in place, some preparation of the natural teeth is necessary to place the crowns. We do have removable options available, but we highly recommend fixed bridges for the most natural look, feel and function.
The modern dental bridge is durable, natural looking tooth coloured porcelain that perfectly blends in with your natural teeth and can withstand the high biting and chewing forces in your mouth. Unlike traditional removable dentures, a dental bridge is a fixed option for the replacement of 1 – 2 missing teeth. The adjacent teeth on either or both sides of the missing space are prepared in the same way as a crown preparation. Similarly, tooth impressions are taken and the bridge is fabricated in a dental laboratory
