Dental Bridge

In the case of a missing tooth, a dental bridge can be used to hold an artificial tooth in place. The bridge anchors the artificial tooth to the neighbouring teeth on either side of it, holding it securely in place to avoid potential problems later on. Untreated missing teeth can cause shifting, speech problems, bone loss, and gum disease.

It's important to us that you get treated if you lose a tooth or multiple teeth, because ignoring it can cause much bigger problems. Besides having a complete, bright smile on your face, getting a dental bridge is necessary to avoid any health issues associated with missing teeth.

Installing a dental bridge usually takes just two appointments, and within a few weeks, your smile will be restored - and you'll have good reason to smile, because you'll be taking care of your oral and overall health!

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used for a number of reasons:

  • Protecting a weak or decaying tooth from further damage
  • Capping a broken or cracked tooth
  • Covering discoloured or misshapen teeth for esthetics
  • Supporting a tooth that has been largely filled or had a root canal
  • Assisting a dental bridge procedure
There are multiple types of crowns that can be used, depending on each unique case. Durable metal crowns may be used for protecting decayed or weak teeth, ceramic crowns provide a better esthetic because they match the natural colour of teeth, and stainless steel crowns are often used for children's primary teeth to protect the tooth or filling.
