Dental Crowns & Bridges
You can trust our caring dental team at Belmont Dental in Toronto to help restore a failing tooth, correct your bite, or add strength to a tooth, with a crown or a bridge.
When a tooth is weakened due to trauma, large fillings, root canal treatment or decay, a crown may be required to restore it to optimal health and function.
A crown, also referred to as a “cap”, is a tooth or gold coloured covering that is permanently placed over an existing tooth. It can be used to add strength, correct the bite or improve the overall appearance of a tooth. All ceramic porcelain crowns may be used to create an extremely natural-looking appearance for your front teeth.
Achieving a natural looking and realistic smile after tooth loss is possible with dental bridges. A fixed bridge is required when replacing one or more missing teeth. It is permanently cemented to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth.
The benefits of a fixed bridge include restoring the natural bite, preventing opposing and adjacent teeth from moving into the space, improved chewing function and enhanced appearance. An implant is an alternative treatment to a fixed bridge.
