Our Ridge Smile Dental Clinic dental team uses dental crowns and bridges to restore our Ridgetown patients' smiles.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are both different kinds of restorative treatments which can help return your smile to it's normal function and appearance.
They are also able to help to fill the space which is left by missing or lost teeth so you can maintain your natural face shape as well as your ability to speak and eat without issue.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Dental crowns are a hollow and artificial tooth replacement that are placed entirely overtop of a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its size, colour, shape and function. Dental crowns improve a damaged tooth's function and strength when it might otherwise be lost or have to be removed.
Crowns are quite strong and can be composed of a variety of materials, from metal to porcelain. They appear exactly like a natural tooth and can last up to and beyond 10 years.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restorations of multiple teeth that 'bridges" the gap left by missing teeth. Composed of one or more artificial teeth, bridges are affixed to the teeth on either side of a gap.
A bridge helps to prevent your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which could lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
