Crowns and Bridges Treatment in Waterloo

What is Dental Crown?

A crown is used to entirely cover or cap a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown (cap) can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment.

A crown is usually recommended to

What is Dental Bridge?

A bridge stabilizes the bite of a patient who is missing one or more teeth. Bridges prevent the surrounding teeth from moving or shifting in the mouth. A missing tooth that is not replaced may cause surrounding teeth to become unstable and require removal, compromising oral health or change the shape of the face and diminish the beauty of a smile.

Unlike partial dentures, bridges are permanent; patients need not remove them. The missing tooth is replaced with an artificial tooth connected between two crowns (caps), which are permanently cemented or bonded on the adjacent teeth.

Bridges can be used to replace a small number of missing teeth if the neighboring teeth are sufficiently strong. The number of missing teeth, condition of the neighboring teeth, condition of the supporting gums and bone are all important factors which need to be assessed prior to making a bridge.

A bridge maybe recommended if you have missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite.The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders.

Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth as they span across the area where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.

If something unfortunate happens to your teeth, Bridgeport Family Dentistry helps to minimize the impact on your entire mouth. Missing teeth can allow the surrounding teeth to become displaced. Cracked or damaged teeth should be fixed to save as much of the tooth as possible.

By taking care of dental problems immediately, you minimize the risk of future problems.

Crowns fix and protect teeth that are so damaged or diseased that they need more support than a simple filling.

Bridges replace missing teeth and offer support for the surrounding teeth to help retain the integrity of the jaw and face structure.
