Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, our dentists can help you choose the best solution. Crowns and bridges are custom-fitted tooth prosthetics that function and look like natural, healthy teeth. Veneers are a less invasive alternative, but may only be a solution for those with slight tooth
damage or discoloration. These thin porcelain or resin shells come in customizable colours and are bonded to the surface of your teeth.
A crown, otherwise known as a cap, is custom-fitted to your bite and is placed over your natural tooth or dental implant. We recommend this procedure for those who have an intact tooth without any root rot. The tooth may be damaged or decayed on the surface alone.
To replace a missing tooth that has neighbouring teeth with decay and/or large fillings, or a tooth that has been missing for a long time (i.e., with gum recession around the area), we recommend bridges as opposed to dental implants.
Types of Bridges
If you wish to be cosmetically correct or to enhance the appearance of one or more teeth, we suggest veneers. They are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that can be customized in terms of colour and shape. They are non-invasive and they are also resistant to future staining.
Common uses for veneers
| Chipped or broken teeth
| Misshapen or irregular teeth
| Teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments
