Dental Crowns | Health Plus Dental

Restore Form and Function!

At Health Plus Dental Centre, we use Dental Bridges & Dental Crowns as a functional and aesthetically pleasing option for replacing missing teeth, or restoring the shape, size, appearance, and function of damaged but not lost teeth. In doing so, Dental Bridges & Dental Crowns can thereby restore the function and the look of single or multiple teeth.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Crowns are dental restorations, otherwise known as ‘caps,’ which are coverings that fit over teeth. Crowns may be necessary because of broken-down old filling, fractured, chipped or sensitive teeth. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned, or discoloured. Crowns are made of natural-looking porcelain and are made to improve your overall smile or to blend in with your own teeth. Sometimes an underlying metal shell is used under the porcelain if additional strength is needed.

Some indications you may require a Crown:

  • A tooth where there now exists more dental filling than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weakened and can no longer support the filling
  • Extensive damage, decay and/or fracture lines
  • Discolorations and compromised tooth aesthetics
  • You have undergone Root canal therapy – after a root canal, teeth can become brittle and are more apt to fracture, so they need to be protected with dental crowns
  • Bridges – when missing teeth are replaced with a bridge, the adjacent teeth require crowns in order to support the replacement teeth. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your teeth.

Crowns can be made from different materials, which include the full porcelain crown, the porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, and the all-metal crown. You and your dentist will decide which type is appropriate for you, depending on the strength requirements and aesthetic concerns of the tooth involved.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental Bridges, like Dental Crowns, are a restorative treatment that is used to replace one or more missing teeth in the same area. They consist of one or more replacement teeth that are then attached to the natural teeth next to them. A Dental Bridge can make chewing easier, improve your appearance, and allow you to keep your teeth, gums and jaw healthy. Dental Bridges not only restore the function of your teeth but also prevent the surrounding teeth from drifting out of position and into the space created by the missing tooth/teeth.

We understand the overall health and appearance of your smile is important to you. If you are interested in a long-term and effective, aesthetically pleasing tooth restoration, a Dental Crown or Dental Bridge may be the best treatment for you. Health Plus Dental Centre is here to help you understand all your options and develop a plan that works for your needs and your budget.
