Dental Crown & Bridge From Your Dentist in Scarborough
At EastSide Family Dental in Scarborough, we’ve helped countless patients restore their smiles with dental crowns and bridges. Not only is this tooth-replacement solution a durable, long-lasting way to restore your smile, it also helps protect the teeth that surround a gap from damage.
What is a dental crown?
A cap that permanently covers, strengthens, and supports a damaged tooth, crowns can be crafted from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, gold, and stainless steel. They can also be used to cover the teeth adjacent to an extracted tooth, acting as anchors to hold a dental bridge in place.
Once bonded to your tooth, crowns can last for many years with diligent care. To keep them healthy and looking great, be sure to brush twice and floss once each day and see us for regular bi-annual checkups and cleanings!
What is a dental bridge?
Taking the place of one or more extracted teeth, a dental bridge combines one or more artificial teeth with dental crowns that are secured to the teeth located on one or both sides of the gap.
Bridges can be great alternatives to partial dentures and can last for a decade or more with dedicated care.
