To learn about crowns and bridges, read the information provided below.
A dental crown is a cap that encases the entire tooth and improves its appearance. At Spearmint Dental, crowns are custom-made to mimic the appearance and colour of natural teeth. The porcelain or metal base is covered with a layer of ceramic that is designed to look like your own tooth.
Crowns are great for:
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Weak or eroded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Covering a dental implant
- Securing a bridge
Dental bridges fill the gaps that are left by lost teeth. Teeth on both sides of the gap (abutment teeth) are fitted with crowns and used as anchors for a false tooth (pontic) in the middle. Pontics can be made of alloys, gold, porcelain, or a combination of materials. Dental bridges can last a decade or more with proper oral hygiene and regular dental examinations.
A bridge can help you:
- Improve your smile
- Restore your ability to speak and chew with ease and confidence
- Prevent remaining teeth from moving out of alignment
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Improve your bite
