Getting a smile boost is about more than vanity. By repairing problems like missing or damaged teeth with crowns or a dental bridge in Toronto, you can have the pleasing – and functional – smile you’ve always dreamed about.
How do I know if I am a candidate for crown or bridge treatment in Toronto?
A dental crown is recommended for teeth that are:
- broken or cracked,
- structurally weakened by large fillings,
- weakened by root canal treatment,
- misshapen, or
- discolored and non-responsive to teeth whitening treatment.
A dental bridge in Toronto from Brush Floss & Smile is an option if you are missing one or more teeth.
What is a crown & bridge? Do they always go together?
A dental crown is a restoration that covers a single tooth to help strengthen it and restore its normal shape and size. Spaces left by missing teeth can cause surrounding teeth to drift, change your bite, encourage cavities, and spoil your smile. A replacement tooth is required. This false tooth (called a pontic) is connected to one or two crowns, which are permanently attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. The replacement tooth or teeth, plus one or two crowns are called a dental bridge. While a bridge always contains a crown, a crown can stand alone without the need for a bridge.
What if I’m missing more than one tooth?
Dental implants are another way to anchor a bridge – especially one that will span greater distances. By placing a crown on the implant instead of on a healthy tooth next to the gap, you’re also conserving your natural tooth – which is preferable in many cases.
Will the crown’s appearance match my teeth?
Crown & bridge materials result in strong, natural-looking restorations that will be custom-made to match your smile. No one will know you have a crown or bridge … unless you tell them! Boost your smile potential with a dental bridge in Toronto!
