Crown and Bridge
Crown and Bridge involve any dental process which focuses on repairing or restoring damaged oral structures. This can include procedures such as crowns, fillings, bridges, and implants.
What is a Crown?
Crowns are dental restorations that are placed over a natural tooth that has lost structure or strength due to damage, decay, fracture and/or root canal treatment. Crowns are also used to restore dental implants, improve bite dysfunctions and support teeth as part of a bridge. The crown acts as a “cap” giving the natural tooth strength, protection, and durability, as well as improving the look of the tooth aesthetically. Crowns are custom-made for your mouth and are designed to match the colour, size and shape of your natural teeth.
What is a Bridge?
A bridge is a non-removable dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth/teeth and can be an alternative to partial dentures. The bridge is secured in place by bonding it to the adjacent natural tooth or implants using crowns. Like crowns, bridges are custom-made for your mouth and are designed to match the colour, size and shape of your natural teeth. All of the crowns and bridges used at Collingwood Laser Dentistry are metal-free and can be made with all-ceramic materials.
What is involved?
Both crowns and bridges require at least two appointments. At the first appointment, you will meet with Dr. Salyani who will prepare your tooth (or teeth), select the shade and take dental impressions which will be used to design the crown and/or bridge. A temporary crown and/or bridge will be placed in your mouth which will simulate your new smile so you have a chance to see what it will look like before the lab creates the permanent one for you. At the next appointment, the temporary crown and/or bridge will be removed and the permanent one will be affixed to your teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Call to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Salyani to determine if crowns and/or bridges are the smile solution that you desire.
