Patients in Mississauga, ON who are interested in restorations such as crowns and bridges are encouraged to work with Dr. Jameela Jifri and her team of professionals at Huron Dental Centre. Porcelain crowns and bridges are just one aspect of her practice known as restorative dentistry.
What are crowns and bridges?
Crowns and bridges are used in a variety of ways to repair the function, health, and appearance of the natural teeth. A porcelain crown, also known as a “tooth cap,” is a cover for the exposed areas of the natural tooth. These are placed over teeth to act as an extra layer of protection when a tooth is weak or damaged. It can also be fabricated to place over a dental implant to act as a tooth replacement. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used for replacing missing teeth, and can replace one or more teeth in a row within the dental arch with a single restoration. A tooth bridge is permanent and affordable. It is a wonderful solution for patients in the community to consider for their smiles when comparing cost versus value.
What materials are used to fabricate these restorations?
At Huron Dental Centre, we offer porcelain and zirconia crowns for our patients. For bridges, porcelain is the most effective solution as it looks and functions like natural tooth enamel. We can educate patients on the pros and cons of each restoration and help them decide which is best for their smile.
What is the benefit of using dental crowns and bridges?
Dental crowns and bridges are:
- Cost effective
- Perfect for restoring function and appearance
What is a dental crown? - Dr. Jameela Jiffri near Mississauga, ONVideo Transcript
A crown is what covers the teeth completely. It can be made out of metal, porcelain or a combination of both.
What is the process of getting a crown?
A tooth needs to be prepared for a crown.
- The tooth is prepped into a certain dimension and measurement
- A mold is taken from it and sent to the lab
- The crown is created to match the color, shape and form of the adjacent teeth
- The crown is brought back and the patient is called for a visit
- Then, the crown is fitted on the prepped tooth with cement which acts as a glue
