Looking for a Dental Crown or a Bridge Treatment in Orangville?

A missing tooth can cause numerous problems such as shifting teeth, gum diseases, TMD, or even affect your facial appearance. The best way to deal with missing teeth and prevent all these issues is to opt for dental treatments like dental crowns and bridges. These treatments can restore the proper function of teeth and even make them look more aesthetically appealing.

What is a dental crown?

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a fractured or broken tooth. A crown perfectly restores the tooth’s original shape and size. Crowns are also used to cover teeth that are poorly shaped or discoloured. Additionally, a crown protects a tooth filling and helps keep it in place.

Before the crown is fixed, the dentist will prepare the damaged tooth by shaping it and then making an impression of the tooth for the creation of the crown. A temporary crown will be placed on the tooth in the meantime. Once the permanent crown has been made, it is cemented onto the teeth.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental device that is used to fill the gap where teeth have been removed. They prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, as well as promote a firm bite and a strong chewing ability. The good thing about dental bridges is that they can fill the gap of one or even more teeth. The bridge also mimics your original teeth. Thereby, offering life-like aesthetics and stable chewing surfaces.

Bridges are fixed by having the adjacent teeth well-trimmed and prepared for crowns. In the meantime, two crowns and a tooth are made in a laboratory. The three pieces will then be joined together to form a bridge which will be placed as crowns on either side of the replacement tooth.

How long is a crown supposed to last?

We can confiently say that crowns can last between 15 to 20 years or even a lifetime if properly cared for. Additionally, approximately 90 percent of crowns do not require major treatment within the first five years.

The longevity of crowns varies depending on various factors, including:

  • Good oral hygiene: Poor oral health can lead to the formation of a cavity where the crown and tooth meet. Also, a bridge may lose support if the tooth that is supporting it gets damaged from dental disease.
  • Good nutrition: Sugary foods and refined carbohydrates should be avoided as they promote an acidic environment, which is not suitable for crowns and bridges. Rather, one should consume anti-inflammatory and alkaline foods as well as foods rich in antioxidants.

To ensure crowns and bridges last a long time, you should follow proper dental hygiene practices, see your dentist at least twice a year for examinations, follow-up care, and professional cleaning.
