Traditional crowns are caps which cover the visible portion of your tooth, sealing it off from oral bacteria and restoring its structure. This prosthetic helps the tooth recover from tooth decay, saving the infected tooth from extraction. These crowns can be made of zirconia, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and gold, all of which are body-safe materials that strike a balance between different aesthetic and durability needs. Additionally, porcelain crowns can be used with individual dental implants to replace a single missing tooth.
Our Calgary prosthodontist helps you determine if a crown is the most appropriate treatment. Crowns are necessary when cavities are too large to safely treat with fillings or if an older filling on a structurally compromised tooth requires replacement. Cracked teeth also benefit from these caps, which prevent complete fracture. Crowns are an integral part of a full mouth restoration as well, rebuilding any worn-down teeth which need a boost to their structural durability.
Fixed bridges are dental prostheses designed to replace one or more lost teeth. By attaching to nearby teeth for support, the replacement teeth are sturdy enough to bite and chew effectively within the smile. These restorations can be fabricated from many of the same materials used for crowns. Additionally, a bridge can pair with several implants to restore a row of missing teeth.
We offer several types of traditional bridges to best meet your particular needs: standard fixed bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bonded bridges. Traditional bridges use an anchoring crown on either side of the prosthetic, while cantilever bridges use two anchoring crowns on one side of the prosthetic for support. Maryland bridges, also known as resin-bonded bridges, treat a smaller area with minimal alterations to healthy teeth.
