Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns | Brampton Dental ArtsDental crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function. A dental bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth. One type of dental bridge consists of dental crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of dental bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages. Dental bridges can also be supported by dental implants.

 

Dental crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics. Some metal-free dental crowns and bridges incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.

Is A Dental Crown Right For Me?

A dental crown has many advantages. Dental crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function, and enhance the overall health of your mouth. In cases where teeth have large broken down fillings, a dental crown can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth. To enhance your smile, metal-free, tooth colored, porcelain crowns can also replace older metal or metal with porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns have translucent qualities that, with the help of an expert cosmetic dentist like Dr. Azeem Sheikh of Brampton Dental Arts in Brampton – GTA area, can look just like natural teeth. Following root canal therapy, a dental crown is typically placed over the remaining tooth structure to preserve aesthetics and tooth function.

Is a Dental Bridge Right For Me?

In cases where teeth are missing, a dental bridge prevents the remaining natural teeth from shifting so that dental health and facial aesthetics are not compromised. Dental bridges may also provide a permanent, non-removable alternative to removable partial or full dentures. Whether supported by natural teeth or dental implants, dental bridges can offer life-like aesthetics and stable chewing surfaces. The can be easily maintained by brushing with modified brushing and flossing.
