Porcelain Crowns can cover a tooth that is severely decayed, broken or brittle. They may be used for aesthetic reasons to improve the tooth shape, size or strength.
For many years, traditional metal-based Crowns have been used to strengthen or rebuild teeth. Today, thanks to the latest advancements in Cosmetic Dentistry, Porcelain Crowns are now an effective aesthetically pleasing option. We can match your Porcelain Crows to be the exact colour, texture and translucency as your natural teeth. This way they look and feel so natural and no one will even know you have them.
Porcelain Crowns are a common procedure at Beyond Dental. It is a virtually painless procedure that can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile.
A Bridge is a device used to replace one or more existing teeth. A Bridge can fill a gap of up to four teeth if there are healthy natural teeth flanking the gap. The Bridge will replace your missing teeth and will appear entirely natural.
When a lost tooth is replaced with cemented bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one may be prepared as crowns to serve as abutments, to hold the bridge in place. This procedure usually takes two appointments to complete.
Bridges are a long term solution that can help prevent the cycle of problems that occur when just one tooth is missing, such as shifting and drifting of remaining teeth, decay and periodontal bone loss.
