Dental Crowns & Bridges
At Wembley Dental Clinic, our Parksville dentists use dental crowns and bridges to help restore your smile.
What are Dental Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are restorative dental treatments that help to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
These restorations can be used to fill spaces left by missing teeth, helping you to maintain your natural facial shape, and restoring your ability to speak and chew normally.
By repairing structural dental issues such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over an entire decayed or damaged tooth to help restore its original shape, size and colour. Dental crowns can help to improve the strength, function and appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They may also be used to help improve the appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Crowns are strong and can be made from a number of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and function like natural teeth, and if cared for properly, may last for 10 years or more.
At Wembley Dental Clinic, our dentists use the TRIOS hand-held scanner and Planmeca E4D to help us design, create and place natural-looking dental crowns, often in just one appointment.
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.
Because they are custom-made, each dental bridge is colour matched to your natural teeth and gives you a restoration that is sometimes barely noticeable to others. It's designed to restore the natural contour of jaw and the bite between upper and lower 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.
The TRIOS 3D scanner and Planmeca E4D allows our dentists to create detailed digital impressions of your bite, then fabricate and place a natural-looking bridge to help restore the function of your smile.
