Crowns & Bridges
Victoria Station Dental
If you’re grappling with issues like chipped, discolored, decayed, or broken teeth, consider the option of crowning them to achieve a robust, aesthetically pleasing, and natural-looking smile.
What are Crowns?
Commonly known as “dental caps,” crowns can be crafted from various dental materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or even gold alloy. They serve as a complete covering for the damaged tooth or teeth. Positioned above and encapsulating the tooth from the gum-line up, a crown essentially becomes the new surface of your tooth or teeth.
At Victoria Station Dental, we utilize crowns to enhance both the appearance and health of your smile. If you’re uncertain about the ideal material for your crown, our knowledgeable and experienced team can provide guidance to help you make an informed decision!
Experiencing the challenges of missing teeth can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and difficulties with everyday tasks like speaking and chewing. To enhance both your smile and confidence, dental bridges provide a solution.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges derive their name from their role in “bridging” the gaps caused by missing teeth due to trauma, decay, or gum disease. Dentists address these gaps by placing durable artificial teeth in the spaces left by natural teeth. Typically constructed from porcelain, the bridge area undergoes preparation before the placement of the artificial piece, requiring multiple visits.
Removal of a bridge can only be performed by a dentist. Once your dentist completes the bridge, they can offer you a semi-permanent option that not only improves your smile but also enhances the health of your natural teeth.
