Looking for dental crowns in Saskatoon, SK? When a tooth or teeth are missing, it can start a chain reaction of other issues in the mouth. The uneven spread of chewing can cause other teeth to take on more work and get worn down. Without a tooth taking up space, the neighboring teeth can start to spread and cause other teeth to become crooked. Missing teeth can also make a person feel self-conscious and not want to smile as much as they should.
A common method of doing so is by using dental crowns & bridges to take the space. Tooth bridges are made from artificial materials but strongly resemble natural gums and teeth. They can be made to match the other teeth in the mouth, allowing the bridge to blend in better.
In order to keep the dental bridge in place, dental crowns are affixed to the neighboring teeth. A dental crown is a ceramic replica of the top of a tooth that is used in many restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. In this instance, the crowns are used as anchors that securely keep the bridge in place. This adds incredible stability, as opposed to something like a removable partial denture. With the ends of the bridge affixed via a permanent crown, there is no worry of the replacement teeth falling out at a bad moment.
Along with bridges, there are many other methods of restoring missing teeth and getting you smiling again! Contact our Saskatoon dental office to learn more about our temporary crowns, permanent crowns and dental bridges.
