If you have one or more cracked, chipped, badly decayed, or otherwise damaged teeth, a dental crown may be the best solution. Dental crowns reinforce the tooth structure and restore its natural appearance.
Dental crowns and dental bridges protect damaged or broken teeth and improve oral health. Crowns can permanently replace a single missing tooth, prevent further damage, or be used as an anchor for a tooth bridge. An implant bridge can be placed over the surgically inserted posts to replace several teeth.
Porcelain dental crowns replace missing teeth both in function and appearance. If a tooth is otherwise healthy with an intact root, a dental crown can be placed in security to the top of a damaged tooth. If the affected tooth is missing, a porcelain crown can be placed over an implant to create a stable, new natural-looking tooth and root.
How Can a Porcelain Crown Help?
Dental crowns by our dentist can resolve deeper problems with teeth that cannot be remedied with other treatments:
- Damaged fillings
- Deep cracks and broken teeth
- Restoration after root canal therapy
- Severely decayed teeth
- Very large fillings
Dental Crowns in Burnaby Heights Dental Centre
A tooth crown is custom-made to blend in with a patient’s existing natural teeth. Your dentist will first remove any decay and reshape the surface to prepare for the porcelain crown. Adjustments will be made until your bite is perfect, and the crown fits comfortably.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges
If you have more than one damaged tooth, fixed dental bridges will replace several teeth and restore mouth function all at once. A fixed bridge consists of porcelain crowns placed over abutment teeth that serve as anchors for the prosthetic replacements. Dental bridges are used with implants and other porcelain restorations. Porcelain fixed dental bridges match a patient’s existing tooth to create a natural smile and bite.
