What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made restorations designed to fully cover a compromised tooth. Crowns safeguard and strengthen damaged and decayed teeth while restoring their strength. We use dental bridges to span the gap left by one or multiple missing teeth in a row. They consist of artificial teeth held in place by crowns cemented onto your neighboring natural teeth. Whichever restoration you need, the ceramic materials we use help them blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, leaving you with a restoration you can rely on both functionally and aesthetically.

When Are Crowns and Bridges Necessary?

Depending on your dental health, we can provide crowns and bridges in many scenarios. Crowns are ideal for protecting a broken tooth from further complications or for covering it after we treat significant decay. Additionally, following a root canal treatment, a crown is often necessary to protect and strengthen the tooth, helping you return to normal oral function.

Bridges are advised when one or more teeth are missing. Not only do they help restore the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but they also carry significant functional benefits. By replacing missing teeth, bridges help make eating and chewing easier, in addition to preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

Our Crown and Bridge Process

We are committed to making your restorative dental experience as streamlined and comfortable as possible. While each patient's needs are unique, our process for crowns and bridges in Markham involves some steps that are common to most procedures. Here is what you can expect during your treatment journey with us:

  • Consultation and Planning: We begin with a thorough assessment of your oral health and a discussion of your concerns and goals. Our team will only recommend treatments that address your specific situation and never push you into care you don't need.
  • Preparation & Impressions: Once we determine whether a crown or bridge is suitable for your needs, we'll perform any necessary steps to prepare your tooth. This may include removing decayed tooth structure, root canal therapy, or extractions when we're providing bridges. After preparation is complete, a precise impression of your bite is captured, which a dental lab uses to craft your custom crown or bridge.
  • Lab Crafting and Fitting: Your final restoration is usually ready in about a week. Once we receive your restoration, we'll firmly affix your crown or bridge and make any adjustments if needed to be sure it fits in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.

Caring for Your Crowns and Bridges

Like your natural teeth, these restorations require diligent care, which includes regular brushing and flossing to dental issues and gum disease. It's also important to attend your routine checkups and cleanings as recommended by our dentist.

During these checkups, we will provide personalized care instructions with your restoration in mind. We also closely monitor the condition of your crowns and bridges to ensure they continue to function effectively and stay looking bright and beautiful.

Markham Dental Bridge & Crown FAQs

We understand that opting for dental crowns or bridges involves careful consideration, and you likely have many questions. Our dental team is committed to providing you with detailed answers, ensuring you are fully informed about your restorative dental options.

With proper care, dental crowns and bridges can often last over a decade. Our team will guide you through personalized best practices for maintaining your restorations during your regular dental visits.
