Dental crowns in ottawa
Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that have broken or are in danger of breaking due to large old fillings or fractures. A variety of materials are used to fabricate these restorations. The crowns will have the same appearance and feel as your natural teeth.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a permanent cap custom made to fit on top of a damaged tooth. A tooth can become damaged for many different reasons, such as injury, tooth decay, or wear over time. If a filling is not sufficient to repair the damaged tooth, then a dental crown may be the best solution. The crown restores the tooth to its original shape, appearance, and strength and protects it from future damage. Dental crowns can be made from several different materials, including metal, and porcelain. Each material has its advantages and your Gateway dentist will walk you through which is the best solution for you. The result is a tooth precisely matching the color and appearance of your other teeth.

In the case of one or more missing teeth due to injury, decay, a congenital condition, or any other reason, a dental bridge will restore your teeth to their original appearance and function. A dental bridge consists of artificial teeth to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
Bridges are non-removable prosthesis that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. To restore functionality and aesthetics, the bridge is attached to the teeth on both sides of the existing space. Noble alloys, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal are used in this process. When at least one tooth is missing, a bridge may be recommended.
The teeth are first prepared. The dentist takes an impression, creates a temporary bridge or crowns to protect and maintain the position of the teeth, and sends the impression to a dental laboratory for fabrication. A couple of weeks later, the bridge is cemented in place.
