Dental Crowns & Bridges
At Sheppard West Dental, our North York dentists offer dental crowns and bridges to help restore the function and appearance of your smile.
Improve Smile Function
Crowns and bridges are effective restorative dental treatments that can help to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
They can be used to fill space left by missing teeth, helping to improve your ability to speak and chew properly as well as to maintain the natural contour of your jawline and facial shape.
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, artificial teeth that are placed over an entire decayed or damaged tooth to restore its original shape, size and colour. Dental crowns can improve the strength, function and appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. These dental restorations look and function much like natural teeth and if cared for properly, can last 10 years or more.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration that 'bridges' a gap left by missing teeth.
Consisting of one or more artificial teeth, a dental bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap in order for the artificial teeth to fill the space.
A bridge can help to prevent your other teeth from shifting position to fill the space. Shifting teeth can lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
