Are you looking to restore the health of your smile? At Midland Family Dentistry, our Midland dentists may be able to provide you with dental crowns or bridges.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns and bridges could be used as part of your restorative dental treatment or to help restore the normal appearance and function of your smile.
They can be used to fill a space caused by missing teeth, help you maintain the natural shape of your face, and return your ability to properly chew and talk.
By repairing structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth with a dental bridge or crown our dentists can help mend your smile – and restore your oral health.
Dental crowns are artificial teeth with a hollow centre and are placed over a full damaged or decayed tooth to restore its original size, colour, and shape. Dental crowns improve the strength, function, and appearance of a broken tooth that might have been lost.
Crowns are extremely strong and can be crafted from a range of materials, such as porcelain and metal. They function and have the appearance of natural teeth, and if treated properly, can last 10 years or more.
A dental bridge is a restoration that looks natural and 'bridges' a gap of missing teeth in your mouth. Made from one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is attached to the teeth on both sides of the gap to fill the space.
A bridge can help keep your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which could cause more serious dental problems such as gum disease.
