Restoring Your Smile

Dental restorations are an important component of your ongoing dental care. Repairing or replacing teeth that are badly damaged or missing is essential for preserving the the health of the rest of your smile. Most people need dental restorations at some point in their lives.

Restorations help prevent damage from getting worse and from affecting the surrounding teeth.

Dental crowns and dental bridges are common dental restorations that may be used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Your dentist will examine your teeth and determine the best treatment option for your needs.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are hollow, artificial tooth caps that a dentist will place over an entire damaged tooth (after removing any decay) to restore its function and protect it from deteriorating any further.

Dental crowns cover damaged teeth, stabilizing them and and protect them from any future issues. For example, they are often used to cover a tooth after a root canal or to attach a dental bridge. 

If you need a filling replaced but the remaining natural tooth material is too small, your dentists may crown it. Your dentist may also use a crown to cover a crooked or discoloured tooth for aesthetic purposes. 

Crowns are typically made from strong materials such as porcelain or metal, and they look and function much like natural teeth. With proper care, they can generally last 10 or more yars.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a tooth replacement that literally 'bridges' a gap left by missing teeth in the jaw. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.

A dental bridge can help to restore the natural contour and function of your teeth, as can also help improve the bite between your upper and lower teeth. 

Dental bridges are custom made for each patient for a tailored fit, and are difficult to detect by others once they have been securely placed.

Filling in a gap in your teeth with a bridge not only restored the function and appearance of your smile, it can also help prevent your other teeth from shifting out of position into the gap, which can cause additional dental problems.
