Hamilton, ON dentist serves patients with crowns and bridges for restoration and replacement of the teeth
Dental crowns and bridges are common in dentistry and continue to be an excellent solution for many Hamilton, ON area patients. Dr. Karen Ho of Dentistry on Parkdale is a dental professional who relies on crowns and bridges to restore patients’ smiles and replace and protect their teeth. Our practice offers a wide range of services for the smile, including the fabrication and placement of dental crowns and bridges. Below is a summary of how crowns and bridges are used in our practice.
- Dental crowns – dental crowns are porcelain restorations that are fabricated to cover a natural tooth. This may be done for cosmetic or functional purposes. In many instances, the dental crown is made to bond over the tooth to offer it an extra layer of protection to keep it from experiencing further breakage. Dental crowns are standard in dental work and continue to be used regularly as a restorative option at an economical cost.
- Dental bridges – bridges are used for replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges are placed using the adjacent teeth for support. They hold a false tooth called a pontic, where one or more teeth used to be. This works best for one or several teeth that have been lost in a row. The dental bridge is more permanent than a partial denture, which is removable, yet more affordable than a dental implant. Patients can speak to their dentist about which option is best for them and consider each tooth replacement option’s advantages.
