Dental Crowns

A crown, or “cap,” is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.


Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain tooth-coloured crowns are by far the most preferred. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour of your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.


Some reasons why patients choose crowns include:

  • Broken or Fractured Teeth
  • Cosmetic Enhancements
  • Decayed Teeth
  • Fractured Fillings
  • Large Fillings
  • Post-Root Canal Treatment

What Does Getting a Crown Involve?

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate moulds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mould will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.


While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed using temporary cement. The alignment of your teeth will be checked to ensure a proper bite.


At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed. We will again check to make sure the spacing and bite are correct.


Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed, non-removable appliance and an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case. The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain that has been fused to metal. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Some reasons to choose a bridge include:


  • Fill Space of Missing Teeth
  • Maintain Facial Shape
  • Prevent Teeth from Drifting
  • Restore Chewing and Speaking Abilities
  • Smile Restoration
  • Upgrade from Removable Partial Denture


What Does Getting a Bridge Involve?

Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mould) is made which will be sent to the dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. Additionally, a temporary bridge will be made and worn until your next appointment.


At the second visit, you permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Occasionally, your dentist may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.


Apart from providing quality dental bridges in Sudbury, we offer comprehensive dental care that includes teeth whitening, sedation, root canal therapy and much more.
