Crown and Bridges in Fort McMurray
A bridge and crown works as a prosthetic device that is cemented directly onto existing teeth or dental implants by a qualified dentist or prosthodontist. Crowns are mostly designed to cover a damaged tooth or act as a cover for a dental implant. They are often cemented onto implants to resemble the same look and feel of the spot where the top of a nature tooth once was.
Bridges and crowns can actually work to strengthen a damaged tooth as well as improve the appearance and shape of a tooth. Leaving a tooth or implant without this finishing can often lead to problems with alignment, bite, digestion and more. Small changes in teeth can cause the remaining teeth to easily shift over and crowns and bridges will help to prevent this from occurring in the future.
All dental services performed by a general dentist.
In most cases dental professionals recommend crowns for these purposes:
- Attaching a bridge
- Protecting weak teeth from cracking
- Full replacement of a large filling that is causing trouble
- For restoration on cracked teeth
- To cover up severely discolored or improperly formed teeth.
- To finish off a root canal procedure.
Crowns and bridges can be designed to last a lifetime but they’d do sometimes require adjustment as well as practicing good oral hygiene. Be sure to maintain regular dental visits and work at preventing damage to your crown or bridge by avoiding chewing hard objects or hard food with these teeth.
