If you are missing or have misaligned teeth, a crown or bridge may be needed. The dentist will use a crown, or often referred to as a cap, to cover a tooth that is damaged or decaying. When a tooth is missing or there is a gap between two teeth, a bridge fills in that space. Normally, this includes an artificial tooth and capping it with two crowns. Both crowns and bridges can help restore normal function and give you back a healthy-looking smile.
At your appointment
A dentist will evaluate your teeth and decide if a crown or bridge is needed. Typically, an impression is made of the area in question. If you are in need of a crown or bridge, the dentist will go over which plan is right for your individual case and the cost involved.
This can all happen in one to two appointments and can be discussed at a free consultation. Call 905-833-1200 today.
