How dental bridges in our Pickering practice differ from crown treatment

At Esquire Dental Centres, our team performs a number of different smile-improving procedures to patients of all ages. Some are designed to cosmetically enhance the smile, while others are a necessary means to restore the highest degree of functionality and comfort. Two treatments commonly performed in restorative dentistry are dental crowns and bridges.

Dr. Amir Awadalla at Esquire Dental Center, Providing Dental Bridges

A dental crown may accomplish a few different goals. A crown may be a part of dental implant treatment, topping off the implant post to restore a natural esthetic to the smile. Crowns are also commonly used to restore strength to a tooth weakened by damage or treated with root canal therapy. By placing a crown over a weakened tooth, the natural tooth structure is alleviated of the burden of bite force. When planning tooth replacement with a dental bridge, crowns are again an integral part of treatment.

The purpose of a dental bridge is to replace a missing tooth or teeth. This appliance “bridges” that space between two teeth, restoring a natural esthetic and functionality for speaking and chewing. Many people choose tooth replacement with a fixed dental bridge, and appliance that includes two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. These false teeth are fused in between the two crowns and, when the crowns are fitted over the teeth on each side of the gap, the space in between is successfully filled. Crowns and bridges, though designed for different purposes, are important restorative pieces. Each can be made of various different materials, from which your dentist will help you choose. Some of the commonly used materials include metal alloy, gold, porcelain, and composite resin.

The team at Esquire Dental Centres has been helping residents of Scarborough, Pickering, North York, and surrounding areas with their various dental needs for years. Whether you want to keep your smile as healthy as possible through preventive care, or you have a dental problem that needs to be addressed, one thing is for sure, you will receive outstanding care from our experienced dentists and support team.
