Enhancements in current dental materials and methods are allowing for new ways to create more satisfying, natural-looking crowns and bridges. Dental research is continually developing more aesthetically enhanced materials such as porcelain and zirconia, which more closely imitate the appearance and strength of natural teeth.
If your smile is blemished by discoloured, decayed or missing teeth, at Appleby Dental we offer crown & bridge solutions that may be right for you. Call Dr. Hill’s office today to make an appointment!
Crowns and Bridges
What are Crowns?
A crown is a custom made a restoration that restores a tooth back to its natural function. It is a necessary treatment when a tooth is broken, cracked, fractured or has undergone root canal treatment. It can also be used to cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.
What are Bridges?
Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace one or more missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.
