Crowns and Bridges

If you have a tooth that has been damaged or are missing teeth, the team at Sunnybank Plaza Dental can enhance the appearance and function of your smile. We provide high-quality dental crowns and dental bridges, which are permanent solutions to teeth that are damaged or missing.

Cover Damage With a Dental Crown

A crown covers a tooth that has been compromised by trauma or decay. It restores a tooth that is missing some of its structure, giving a completely natural look. It can cover cracks, breakage and discolouration. Once the tooth is prepared to receive the crown, impressions are taken that are used to fabricate your crown. You’ll get a temporary crown to wear until yours is ready. In the final stage, we’ll place your custom-made crown.

The Many Types of Dental Crowns

Different materials can be used to create your crown depending on what is most appropriate for your situation. We’ll be happy to discuss all options with you and make our best recommendations.

  • Cast gold crowns: Long-lasting and reliable, gold was the first material ever used for crowns. They can be more expensive and stand out from the rest of your smile due to the colour.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns: With a perfect fit and great strength, PFM is known for its durability and aesthetics. They are often appropriate for your back teeth.
  • All-porcelain crowns: With a natural appearance and high durability, these crowns are biocompatible and resemble your other teeth for a flawless look. Today, this material is the most commonly used in crowns for the front or back teeth.

Replace Teeth With a Dental Bridge

  • Comfortable chewing
  • Maintains your facial profile
