If you are looking to replace one or more missing teeth, you may be wondering if a dental crown and bridge treatment is the right solution for you. While this restorative option has the potential to greatly improve your smile, it’s important to understand what it is and whether you’re a candidate. 

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a type of dental restoration that completely covers a tooth. This cap-like tooth covering is often used to protect a damaged or decayed tooth, as well as to improve the appearance of the tooth.

They’re made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, metal, and ceramic, and with diligent daily care, can strengthen and improve the look of your smile for many years to come.

What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge is a restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. This tooth replacement option consists of an artificial tooth, referred to as a pontic, which is anchored in place by two dental crowns.

Dental bridges are commonly made from porcelain or ceramic, as these materials can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth.

Who is a candidate for a dental crown and bridge?

If you are missing one or more teeth and have good oral health, it’s likely that you’ll be a viable candidate for a dental crown and bridge treatment.
