What Are Dental Crowns & Bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges are essential restorative treatments that can get your smile's health and function back on track while preventing further damage. While the main purpose of dental crowns and bridges is protecting your natural teeth and restoring the function of your bite, our restorations also enhance the appearance of your smile.

Tooth crowns are tooth-shaped caps designed to encase damaged or broken teeth, providing strength and stability and minimizing the chance that issues like infections or nerve exposure happen again. They are versatile solutions for repairing teeth throughout your smile, from incisors to molars. Depending on your specific needs, our dental team will discuss the best material options for your crowns.

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that bridge the gap created by one or multiple missing teeth in a row. They consist of artificial teeth anchored by crowns on adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges restore your ability to chew and speak properly while maintaining the alignment of your remaining teeth.

Our Dental Crown & Bridge Process

At Skymark Dental Centre, we aim to make your dental crown or bridge experience as smooth and efficient as possible. Our team is dedicated to helping you make informed decisions about your treatment plan and will talk to you about the various options for completing your smile. In cases where a natural tooth is beyond saving, we also offer tooth extractions and dental implant services. For traditional crowns and bridges, here's a breakdown of our process:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, our dental team will conduct a comprehensive oral examination to assess the condition of your teeth and gums. Advanced diagnostic tools, such as digital x-rays, alongside our extensive experience assessing restorative needs, will help us determine if crowns or bridges are right for your dental issue.
  2. Treatment Planning: If our dentist recommends a tooth crown or bridge, we'll create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. Our team will take the time to discuss material options and ensure you're comfortable with our proposed restorative plan.
  3. Tooth Preparation & Impressions: We'll prepare the affected tooth for crowns by cleaning and reshaping it. For bridges, we'll prepare the anchor teeth for crowns to support the bridge. Our dentist takes detailed impressions of your affected tooth or teeth and sends them to our trusted dental lab partner. We may place temporary crowns or fillings to protect your teeth while the lab crafts your restoration.
  4. Crown or Bridge Placement: You'll return for the final placement once your permanent crown or bridge is ready. We'll ensure a secure fit and cement it in place, maximizing the durability and longevity of your restoration.

North York Crown & Dental Bridge FAQs

Our goal is to help you feel like you're never in the dark about your treatment plan and the benefits of restoring your smile. Here are some common questions our patients ask:

Can I get a crown if I have gum disease?

Yes, in some cases, you can receive a dental crown even if you have gum disease. However, addressing gum issues before crown placement is essential for a successful procedure. Our dental team will assess your gum health and recommend a suitable treatment plan.

Absolutely! We use dental crowns to protect and restore damaged or broken teeth, even without root canal treatment. Our experienced dentist will evaluate your situation and recommend the best course of action for your dental needs.

It usually takes two appointments to get your permanent crown placed. We'll prepare your tooth and stabilize any emergency issues at the first appointment, and the lab generally makes your restoration in 10 days.
