Dental Crown & Bridge Therapy in Windsor
Dental restorations don’t have to mar your smile -- in fact, they can look just like natural teeth. Crowns and bridges are two ways we restore teeth back to good health and beauty. With CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, your Day Hill dentist can complete treatment in just one visit to our state-of-the-art practice.
A dental crown is a thin, tooth-shaped covering that fits directly over a damaged tooth. Sturdy and natural-looking, dental crowns perform the following functions in the front or back teeth.
- Holding together parts of a broken or damaged tooth
- Restoring tooth decay when there’s not enough tooth structure for a filling
- Improving the shape or overall appearance of an imperfect tooth
- Replacing a single tooth as the restoration of a dental implant
Dental crowns are also used as anchoring devices for a dental bridge, which can be used to replace one or several missing teeth.
A dental bridge works just like the name suggests -- by creating an actual bridge over the gap left by one or more missing teeth. With two crowns placed on the natural teeth surrounding the space, a dental bridge is made of prosthetic teeth that fill in the space between. The device restores your ability to eat, speak, and smile with ease once again.
