When there is missing teeth, misalignment or damage to a tooth, a crown or bridge can be the perfect solution; restoring function as well as the look of your mouth. You can get back to eating the foods you love and smiling without hiding. Both are a permanent solution.
- Crowns, or caps, are a covering for a broken tooth. They are also placed after root canal or to hide some discolouration.
- Bridges are just that – a bridge between two teeth when there is a missing tooth. The bridge covers the gap. Then, a crown is placed to keep the bridge in place.
What Happens at an Appointment
A mold will be taken of the problem area and a dentist will discuss with you if a crown or bridge is the right solution. Crowns and bridges can match seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth.
If a crown is needed, we offer both traditional crowns or same-day crowns. Unlike traditional crowns that typically take more than one-visit to complete, same-day crowns can be done in as little as an hour.
We also offer the “Quick Sleeper,” to ease the pain and worry of receiving a local anesthetic for children and patients who are hard to numb.
If you think you may be a candidate for a crown or bridge, call 905-878-9882 today to schedule a consultation.
