A crown or a fixed bridge makes it possible to preserve and restore masticatory function to a weakened tooth. Do not wait for a tooth to break before acting!
Crown and fixed bridge
A crown is used to completely cover and strengthen a tooth. It protects the teeth to avoids further damage. The crown can be recommended on a tooth that has an extensive restauration, severe wear or to modify its form. A crown is also an ideal solution after a root canal because the tooth is more fragile.
In a traditional way, the dentist will trim your tooth in a first appointment and then take an impression of all your teeth to help make the custom design of the crown.
It can be made of different materials such as metal, ceramic or zircon. A temporary crown is then installed until your next appointment. During the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and then cement the final crown. This method is still used but we usually go for the E4D technology.
This restauration preserve the natural aspect of your tooth and is a solid and durable treatment.
We can fabricate your ceramic crown in only one appointment with the E4D technology.
The bridge is used to replace one or many teeth with the help of adjacent teeth. It is a permanent option and the procedure is similar to a crown. There are many types of bridges so your dentist will be able to recommend the best fit for you.
