A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface and restores it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens a tooth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Crowns are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
In most cases, the new crown is installed in two dentist visits in two week’s time. The inconvenience and after-effects will be minimal.
There are several options, including one-day crowns. Your Penticton family dentist can discuss your options with you at your regular dental appointment.
A bridge is when one or more teeth are missing and there is a tooth on either side of the gap. A bridge will have two crowns on either side of the missing tooth and a “floating” tooth/teeth in the middle. It is cemented in place and is non-removable. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. Bridges are an ideal solution for anyone looking to restore their smile, regain proper chewing and speaking ability and preventing remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
