Our North York dentists offer dental crowns and bridges to replace missing teeth and help to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are natural looking dental treatments that can help to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
These restorations can fill the spaces left by missing teeth, helping you to maintain the natural shape of your jawline, and return your ability to speak and chew properly.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our Sheppard Yorkland dentists can change your smile's appearance – and help to restore and preserve your oral health.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over an entire decayed or damaged tooth to restore its original shape, size and colour. Dental crowns work to strengthen and change the appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and if cared for properly, can last 10 years or more.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration that 'bridges' the gaps in your gumline left by missing teeth. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, a dental bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.
A bridge is helpful in preventing your other teeth from shifting out of position to fill the space, which could lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease or bone deterioration.
