Crowns and Bridges

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is cemented (glued) over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and/or improve its appearance.  Crowns can be made of different materials e.g. gold, porcelain or a combination of both.  A dental crown has a life expectancy of approximately 10-20 years depending on “wear and tear”, one’s personal oral habits (e.g. clenching, grinding, chewing ice, nail biting etc…), and one’s oral hygiene care.

A dental bridge may be recommended to replace one or more missing teeth, without which could adversely affect the appearance and functionality of your smile.  Missing teeth can cause a change in one’s bite, shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal (gum) disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.  A bridge can be made from the same materials and have a life expectancy like that of a crown.
