We repair damaged or missing teeth with crowns & bridges.
As you get older, it is unlikely that your teeth will remain in perfect condition, even with diligent brushing and flossing habits. If you have missing or damaged teeth, crowns & bridges are common dental restoration techniques we use to improve the health and appearance of smiles at Georgian Shores Dental Centre.
Crowns, otherwise known as caps, involve placing a tooth-shaped cover over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, shape, size, and appearance. To place a crown on a tooth, the process involves removing the damaged portion of the tooth and then shaping it to fit the crown.
A bridge is a dental appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth. It consists of two or more crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap with a false tooth in between. The crowns serve as anchors for the bridge, holding it in place.
While they work differently, both crowns & bridges are used to restore the appearance and function of teeth. Both can also improve chewing and speech, prevent further damage to the teeth, and enhance the overall appearance of the smile.
We can determine if a crown or a bridge is the best option for your teeth in cases where damage or decay becomes an issue. We proudly serve patients from throughout the Thornbury, Ontario area and are here to make going to the dentist a good experience. Contact us today for more information about crowns & bridges.
