Dental Crowns and Bridges repair smiles in East Gwillimbury, near Newmarket, ON

If you’ve been to the dentist recently, you may have found out that you need a dental restoration. Sometimes it’s just a small filling to repair tooth decay, but other times you may need a more extensive restoration such as dental crowns or bridges. In the following article, we share some information about these common restorations and why they may be recommended to our patients in East Gwillimbury, and Newmarket, ON.

Reasons for dental restorations

When you think of restorative dentistry, chances are fillings for cavities are the first thing to come to mind, but they aren’t the only type of restorative dental work. Crowns and bridges are two common restorations that we may recommend for the following situations:

  • Tooth loss due to injury or trauma
  • Cracks or fractures in a tooth
  • Deep infection or decay
  • Weakened tooth due to multiple fillings
  • Tooth extraction
  • Cosmetic flaws such as misshapen teeth

What are dental crowns

Dental crowns are coverings, or caps, that extend over the entire visible surface of the tooth to restore shape, functionality, and appearance of a tooth that is damaged or decayed. They are commonly made of porcelain, which is a strong, ceramic material that closely resembles tooth enamel. Dental crowns are a long-lasting, stable restorative solution for when a large portion of the tooth needs to be repaired or modified.

What are dental bridges

Dental bridges are a solution that fill in the gap left behind when one or more teeth are missing Dental bridges are comprised of two dental crowns that are placed on top of the teeth on each side of the gap. The crowns serve as anchors for the framework that supports the artificial teeth.
