Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth. Crowns restore a tooth’s shape and size, strength, and/or improve its appearance. Crowns encase the entire visible portion of a tooth – from top of tooth to the gum line.

 
Why Is A Dental Crown Needed?

A dental crown may be needed to:
  • protect a weak tooth (eg, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  • hold a dental bridge in place
  • cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
  • cover a dental implant
  • cover a tooth that has been endodontically treated (had a root canal)

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -- these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth -- and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Oral Surgery

Dental implants are the foremost treatment for replacement of missing teeth (single or multiple). It provides a fixed solution instead of a removable denture. It preserves the supporting bone and unlike a bridge, no shavings down of healthy teeth are needed. (A referral may be needed)
 
  • Wisdom teeth extraction is needed when the last molars of the teeth does not have adequate space to erupt properly resulting in an impacted tooth. A Panoramic digital X-ray is done to determine the positioning of the wisdom teeth in which the dentist will diagnose the recommended treatment. (A referral may be needed)
