At O'Connor Dental Health Group, our Ottawa dentists use dental bridges and crowns to reshape the way your smile looks.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Restorative dental treatments such as crowns and bridges help to restore the natural look and function of your smile.
They aim to fill spaces left by missing teeth and may also be able to maintain your facial shape and restore your ability to chew and speak effectively.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Dental crowns are hollow, false teeth that are placed over an entire damaged or decayed tooth to restore its typical shape, size and colour. Dental crowns improve the strength, function, and appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are extremely strong and can be made from different materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and if cared for properly, can last 10 or more years.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration that 'bridges' gaps made by missing teeth in your mouth. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is cemented to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.
A bridge helps to prevent your other teeth from moving positions to fill the empty space, which could lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
