Crown And Bridge Treatment Can Return Your Smile To Its Former Glory

At CHV Dental, we’re delighted to be able to restore smiles with crowns and bridges. Many of our patients have benefitted from these reliable, long-lasting options. Keep reading to learn more.

What is a dental crown?

Also known as a cap, it goes over a tooth that has been damaged due to decay or has suffered other damage. It can also be used to support a tooth with little remaining structure that has a large filling and to keep a bridge in place. Crowns are durable and can last for many years. They can be made from various materials, including gold, porcelain, and stainless steel. Once we permanently put it on your tooth, your smile will look complete and function as it should. No extra work is required to keep them clean; just brush and floss your teeth as you normally would!

What is a bridge?

Bridges eliminate the gap created by one or several missing teeth. They do this by combining artificial teeth and crowns. In most cases, it’s adhered to teeth adjacent to the gap, hence why it’s known as a bridge. As your dentist in Calgary, we can address multiple gaps in one visit with this technique. A bridge can be an alternative to removable partial dentures, but factors that affect this include the number of missing teeth and the strength of adjacent teeth. And, just like crowns, they can last a decade or longer with adequate hygiene care.
