Dental Crowns and Bridges in Toronto, Ontario
Dental crowns, or dental caps, are used for both restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Crowns can help you to visually enhance the appearance of any of your discoulored, chipped or otherwise traumatized teeth, and can also be used to recreate teeth that have suffered from decay, breaks, or any complications that have caused them to lose strength.
Dental Bridges and Crowns
Further, dental crowns may be used in conjunction with a dental bridge - by “capping” the two teeth that surround a gap, left by a missing / lost tooth. Once the two crowns are in place, a “fake tooth”, attached to a dental bridge, can be attached to effectively replace your missing tooth, by acting as a bridge for the new tooth. Although the neighbouring teeth may not be damaged, the crowns are used to “borrow” strength and support from these healthy teeth, so the new tooth can look and feel like a natural one.
What are Dental Crowns?
Unlike composite dental bonded fillings or porcelain inlays/onlays (Which fill or cover only a portion of a tooth,) a dental crown is a type of dental restoration that covers the entire tooth, from the gum lines-up. It is cemented onto your natural tooth, effectively serving as your tooth’s new outer surface.
Crowns can be fashioned from a variety of materials including gold alloy (Gold tooth / teeth), porcelain, ceramic, or even a combination of both! Depending on your functional and aesthetic preferences, the dentists and staff at Wychwood Dental will be happy to provide you with additional information on your crown options, including guidance on which type of material would work best for your needs. We provide both gold dental crowns (gold teeth) and ceramic dental crowns (tooth coloured) at our dental office, located at 639 St. Clair Ave. W. M6C 1A7
