Crowns & Bridges
Your Kanata dentist will restore strength and function to your teeth!
Missing and fractured teeth not only affect the way you look, but can also affect your oral health and the way you feel about your smile and yourself. Ignoring a missing, decayed, or fractured tooth, can lead to infection, tooth pain, or shifting of teeth. Dental crowns and bridges are tooth restorations that bring back the looks and function of your original teeth. Depending on your individual case and needs, we at the Hazeldean Family Dental Centre in Kanata will recommend the restorative procedure that is right for you.
Dental Crowns by your Kanata Dentist
Dental Crowns are strong and durable caps that are fitted to match the shape, size and color of your original tooth. Crowns can be used to cover a cracked tooth, thereby sealing the crack and preventing further damage. They can also be used to cover a badly decayed tooth when there’s not enough tooth structure remaining to provide support for a regular filling. In cases of missing teeth, a crown can also be used, but it requires the helps of a dental implant, which serves as an artificial root for the crown.
Dental Bridges by your Kanata Dentist
Dental Bridges are used to fill the gaps of missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth, which are permanently fixed to healthy supporting teeth on either side of the gap. Just like crowns, dental bridges are also custom fitted to match the size, shape and color of the missing tooth and the adjacent teeth. When preparing a dental bridge, our doctor will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap first, so that they can hold the bridge in place. Dental bridges are strong, durable and natural looking restorations.
