Is it possible to restore teeth that are damaged, decayed, or missing without undergoing extensive treatment? Yes!
Dental crowns and dental bridges are two cosmetic dentistry services that can accomplish this without surgical methods and in very few appointments.
Dental crowns and dental bridges not only improve the look of teeth, but they can also improve how they function for better eating, chewing, and speaking. Custom made in a dental lab, dental crowns and bridges look very similar to natural teeth and virtually match their size, shape, and strength.
We offer dental crowns and dental bridges for our Scarborough, ON patients who are interested in improving the look of their smiles through affordable and time-effective methods.
Many patients with damaged or missing teeth find that, in addition to disliking their smiles, day-to-day activities like eating and speaking may be more difficult without a complete smile. The goal of dental crowns and dental bridges is to return teeth as closely as possible to their original size and shape, allowing for better dental function and aesthetics.
Better dental function means most patients can return to a diet of foods they love without having to worry about difficult or painful chewing. Dental crowns and bridges also help patients return to healthy, attractive, and confident smiles!
Dental bridges are a series of dental crowns used to bridge the gap of a missing tooth. Most commonly, the crowns on either side attach to natural teeth, with the artificial tooth suspended in between.

While all three procedures have the goal of completing a smile with missing teeth, the main difference between dentures versus dental implants is its permanence in the mouth.
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices placed in areas where multiple teeth are entirely missing or severely damaged, whereas dental crowns or caps cover damaged teeth permanently.

We want to make sure that we’re providing you with the best treatment for your smile. Your dentist will talk you through the whole process in-office to make sure all your questions and concerns are answered. During this consultation, you can expect your dentist to take an impression of your mouth for custom-made dental implants.
We recommend having someone to accompany you to drive you to and from our dental office for any implant procedures. It shouldn’t take longer than 2 hours.
Before the surgical procedure, you may be given pre-procedure medication or instructions for pre-sedation protocols (if necessary) by your dentist.
During the procedure, we may extract any failing teeth before placing the dental crown or bridge and place bone grafts (if needed). After this surgery, we’ll schedule an appointment for two weeks later for a follow-up.
Your dentist will outline post-surgery care specific to your procedure. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene will extend the life of your dental crowns or bridge implants. Flossing daily, brushing your teeth at least twice a day, and regularly visiting your Scarborough dental office is the best way to extend your dental implants’ benefits.
