Dental Crowns & Bridges
At Village Lane Dental Centre, our Okotoks dentists use dental crowns and bridges to restore your smile.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are restorative dental treatments that can help to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Crowns and bridges can help to fill space left by missing teeth, and can also help you maintain your natural facial shape as well as return your ability to speak and chew properly.
By using a dental crown or bridge to repair structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Made from materials like porcelain and metal, dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over a decayed or damaged tooth to restore its shape, size and colour. Crowns can improve the strength, function and look of a broken tooth.
Crowns are very strong and can be made from a variety of materials. They look and function like natural teeth, and can last 10 years or more if cared for properly.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration for your mouth that 'bridges' a gap of missing teeth. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.
A bridge helps to prevent your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which can lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
