At Wellspring Dental, our Pembroke and Deep River dentists use dental bridges and crowns in order to restore your smile.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Dental bridges and crowns are both restorative dental treatments which can help to recover the normal appearance and function of your smile.
These treatments help to fill the space which is left by missing teeth as well as maintain your natural facial shape. Bridges and crowns can even help to return your ability to chew and speak properly.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Dental crowns are artificial and hollow teeth that your dentist places over an entirely decayed or damaged tooth. In doing so, you tooth's original shape is restored, as well as its colour and size. Dental crowns can help improve the appearance, strength and function of a broken tooth which may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are very strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and if cared for properly, can last 10 years or more.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration that 'bridges' a gap of missing teeth in your mouth. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.
A bridge can help prevent other teeth from shifting positions to fill the empty space in your mouth. If they did so, it could lead to a number of serious dental health issues, including gum disease.
