Restore your smile and confidence with Dental Crowns and Bridges
North York, Ontario patients who need to restore their smile, will want to work with a dental team that offers general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry for all ages. Respond Dental is available to help many patients repair their teeth with restorations such as dental bridges and dental crowns.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed appliance used to restore one or more missing teeth in a row. It is made of porcelain and includes false teeth and crowns fused together. The adjacent teeth support the dental bridge and allow the patient to speak and eat more efficiently. The dental bridge can be in place for many years with proper care at home with brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits.
A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is best described as a tooth “cap” placed over a tooth to offer an extra layer of strength and protection. These are often placed on teeth with a compromised structure due to root canal therapy or large fillings. Our team at Respond Dental provides same-day dentistry with CEREC technology, so patients can have their smiles prepped and restored in a single visit. Dental crowns are also made of porcelain, a material that closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel for a beautiful repair!
Which one is right for me
Patients missing teeth may use both dental bridges and crowns, as crowns are often fabricated to place over the abutment of a dental implant to replace a single tooth. However, a patient who needs to repair a tooth may be suited for a dental crown instead.
