At Ridge Smile Dental Clinic in Ridgetown, our goal is to give you a healthy smile! We offer crowns and bridges as treatment options to restore your teeth.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is used to hold weak or broken teeth together to avoid further fracturing. Crowns are also used to support large fillings, attach a bridge, or cover discolored or deformed teeth. They are permanently cemented over a tooth to restore its strength and shape and appearance.
To receive a crown, our dental professionals typically need two dental visits so that we can prepare the tooth or dental implant for the crown and to make an impression of the area.
Crowns last about five to eight years, and with good oral hygiene crowns may last longer. A crown can help strengthen your teeth and improve the aesthetics of your mouth.
A dental bridge is used when patients need to replace one or more missing teeth, and is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. They are fixed on the supporting teeth or dental implant.
On your first visit, we prepare the supporting teeth for the bridge.
Next, we make an impression of the supporting teeth and insert a temporary dental bridge to protect the supporting teeth as well as the space between them.
On your second visit, the permanent bridge is placed and adjusted to insure proper fit.
If you like the fit, we cement the bridge into place.
