If you have one or more cracked, chipped, badly decayed or otherwise damaged teeth, a dental crown may be the best solution. Dental crowns in Vancouver reinforce the tooth structure and restore its natural appearance.
Dental crowns and bridges protect damaged or broken teeth and improve oral health. Dental crowns in Burnaby 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 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.
Dental crowns in Vancouver can resolve deeper problems with teeth that cannot be remedied with other treatments:
A tooth crown is custom-made to blend in with a patient’s existing natural teeth. Your Burnaby 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
If you have more than one damaged tooth, a fixed dental bridge in Burnaby 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 bridges match a patients existing tooth to create a natural smile and bite.
