Dental Crowns & Bridges
Our dentists at Aspen Dental can help restore your smile with dental crowns and bridges.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Bridges and crowns are two restorative dental treatments that can help to restore your smile's normal function and appearance.
Missing teeth leave gaps in your smile that these restorations can fill. Crowns and bridges can also help you maintain your natural facial shape and return your ability to chew and speak properly.
By fixing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can help restore your smile — and your oral health.
These hollow, artificial teeth are placed over an entire damaged or decayed tooth to restore its original size, colour and shape. With dental crowns, we can improve the appearance, strength and function of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are very strong and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function 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 of missing teeth in your mouth. Made up of one or more artificial teeth, the bridge is affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space. They are custom-made to fit your smile and can restore the natural contour of teeth.
A bridge helps to prevent your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which could lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
