Our Atlantic Dental Centre dentists use dental crowns and bridges to restore the smiles of patients in Halifax.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
As restorative dental treatments, crowns and bridges help to bring back the normal function and appearance of your teeth.
They can be used to fill in the spaces or gaps where there are missing or broken teeth to help you maintain your natural facial shape as well as return your ability to speak and chew properly.
By repairing structural problems, our Atlantic Dental Centre dentists can help restore your oral health — and bring back your smile.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over an entire decayed or broken tooth to cover and protect it. Dental crowns improve the strength, function and appearance of the tooth. They are matched to the shape and colour of your teeth for a natural-looking appearance.
Crowns are very strong and will function like your natural teeth. They can be made of a variety of materials including porcelain and metal. With proper care, crowns can last 10 years or more.
A dental bridge is made up of one or more artificial teeth that 'bridge' the gap of missing teeth in your mouth. The bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space. Bridges are custom-made to match the colour of your teeth and promote a natural-looking appearance.
A dental bridge helps to prevent your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the empty space, which could lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
