Dental Bridges & Dental Crowns
Your Choice for Dental Bridges & Dental Crowns on 17th Avenue SW
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, we use Dental Bridges & Dental Crowns to restore function to single or multiple teeth. They are a functional and aesthetically pleasing option for replacing missing teeth, or restoring the shape, size, appearance and function of damaged but not lost teeth.
Why Choose a Dental Crown?
Dental Crowns are a reliable dental restoration that is used to restore the function of teeth that have large restoration, have had root canal treatment, or teeth that suffer from tooth decay or fracture lines. Dental Crowns completely cap or encircle a tooth or dental implant and may be the ideal treatment option when previous fillings have broken, fractured, or when chipped surfaces are noted, or when there is tooth sensitivity involved. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that aremalformed, malpositioned, or discoloured/stained.
A Dental Crown is recommended when:
1. You have a tooth that requires a filling that will exceed the natural tooth structure.
2. Your teeth have extensive damage, tooth decay and/or fracture lines.
3. Your teeth are discolored and have compromised tooth aesthetics.
4. You have undergone root canal therapy – after root canal therapy, teeth become brittle and are more susceptible to fracture. Root canal teeth need to be protected with dental crowns.
Why Choose a Dental Bridge?
Dental Bridges, like Dental Crowns, are a restorative treatment that is used to replace one or more missing teeth in the same area. They consist of one or more replacement teeth that are then attached to the natural teeth next to them. A Dental bridge can make chewing easier, improve your appearance, and allow you to keep your teeth, gums and jaw healthy. Dental Bridges not only restore the function of your teeth, but also prevent the surrounding teeth from drifting out of position and into the space created by the missing tooth/teeth.
We understand your smile is important to you. Replacing missing teeth with one of our Dental Bridges or Dental Crowns can help improve the function of your teeth as well as your overall health and appearance. If you are interested in a long-term, cost-effective, esthetic and durable restoration, a Dental Crown or Dental Bridge may be the best treatment for you! West 17th Avenue Dental Care is here to help you understand your options and develop a plan that works for both your needs and your budget.
