Crowns & Bridges From Your Dentists in Brantford
If one or more broken or missing teeth are making you hesitant to smile, you don’t have to resign yourself to a lifetime of self-consciousness! At Brantford Family Dental Centre, we’re proud to provide our patients with natural-looking tooth restoration and replacement options that completely transform smiles.
What is a dental crown?
An ideal solution for a tooth that’s broken, severely damaged, or discoloured, this prosthetic option fits snuggly over a tooth and offers a natural and lasting finish.
Placing a dental crown often requires two appointments. During the first, a mold will be taken of the tooth and the area surrounding it, and the tooth in question will be prepared for crown placement. We’ll fit your tooth with a temporary protective crown that will be removed when your professionally crafted version is ready. Once you final crown is ready, we will schedule a return visit and will ensure that the crown fits well and looks great. Once we’ve confirmed this is the case, we’ll secure your customized, permanent crown in place and advise you on how to best care for it.
What is a dental bridge?
When you’ve experienced tooth loss, a dental bridge may be your ideal rejuvenation solution! Able to fill in the gap one or more missing teeth leave behind, the process of having a bridge placed is similar to what you’ll experience when receiving a crown.
After an impression of the area is taken, anchoring teeth on either side of the gap(s) will be prepared for crowns, which will support the dental bridge. A temporary prosthetic will be put in place while your permanent bridge is made, and once complete, we’ll schedule a return visit to our office. We’ll ensure that the bridge – complete with one or more artificial teeth to fill any gaps – fits comfortably before securing it in place!
