Crowns and Bridges Sherwood Park

sherwood park dentist

Crowns and bridges are common dentistry procedures with a variety of uses that aim to restore and strengthen teeth as well as replace missing teeth in some cases. Let's take an in depth look at in what circumstances you may need them in and what benefits they can provide.

Crowns

A dental crown acts as a cap or covering that is cemented over the visible portions of a tooth. There are many reasons why they could be needed, for example:

  • Protection: for strengthening weak teeth, which are starting to decay and protect them from breaking.
  • Reinforcement and Support: for holding together cracked or broken teeth as well as supporting teeth that are broken down to the point that a filling is not adequate to hold it together.
  • Restoration: for restoring teeth that are severely worn, badly chipped or broken.
  • Covering: if tooth whitening is not suitable or ineffective, crowns can be an excellent way to cover discolored or misshapen teeth.
  • Cosmetic: to aid in making modifications or adjustments for cosmetic benefits and aesthetics.

Bridges

Dental bridges are used to fill the gap between two teeth in the event that there are teeth missing or teeth have been removed. Similar to crowns, dental bridges can be fabricated using many different materials. The material chosen depends on the aesthetic demand, the way the teeth fit together and the size of the gap being replaced. The best material for your mouth will be discussed with you by your dentist.

As you can see, crowns and bridges can be extremely beneficial in some cases. Costs vary depending on the number of teeth involved and material used. If you think you may need them or would like to book a consultation to learn more, contact us to arrange a consultation with one of our dentists.
