Crowns & Bridges
A Crown To Help You Feel Like Royalty!
Dental crowns and bridges are fixed partial dentures. They are non-removable dentures to replace one or a few teeth only. These can be made out of various materials such as metal, plastic, porcelain, ceramic or zirconium.
At North York Pearl Dental Group, we offer CEREC One-Visit Crowns. It is a procedure where in very exact measurements and fabrication of crown restorations are done with the aid of computers in about 1-hour, while you wait. Materials used are usually Zirconia and E-Max. This are the best materials for crown and bridge work where aesthetic concerns are important. The cost for these crowns and bridges differs depending on the case and materials used.
Why Would I Need A Dental Crown?
Crowns serve multiple purposes in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Mainly, they provide support to broken or weakened teeth, either through fractures, large fillings, or decay. Other examples include:
- Anchoring bridgework
- Restoring the appearance of misshapen, chipped, or discoloured teeth
- Covering a dental implant
- Rebuilding a tooth after a root canal (yes, you have to get a crown after a root canal)
- Creating a healthy bite
