Crowns & Bridges in Barrie, ON
We all want to keep our natural teeth healthy and in good condition, but it's not always possible. Decay, trauma, and other issues can lead to damaged or missing teeth.
In most cases where a tooth is lost or becomes damaged like this, the doctors at Park Place Dental still turn to time-tested solutions like dental crowns and bridges.
Treating damaged or missing teeth as quickly as possible is not just good for your oral health. Both problems affect your appearance and can prevent you from smiling openly. However, you also have to live with the inconvenience of teeth that affect your speech and even your ability to chew and eat normally.
Improve Your Smile with Dental Crowns in Barrie
Dental crowns are one of the most effective solutions we offer for restoring a damaged tooth while preserving its original root structure.
There are a variety of materials available today that can be used to construct a dental crown. At Park Place Dental, we use all-porcelain crowns because they are durable and closely resemble the appearance of a natural tooth.
What Does a Dental Crown Do?
There are many different situations in which we may recommend a crown as the most appropriate solution for a damaged tooth. Some of these are:
- Restoring a tooth damaged by injury or decay
- Protecting a tooth after a large filling
- Restoring a tooth that is badly worn or cracked
- Reinforcing a tooth after a root canal procedure
- Creating a functional restoration for a dental implant
- Serving as an anchor for a dental bridge or dentures
All our dental crowns are custom-fabricated to fit into your mouth naturally. Colour, size, and shape will be matched closely to your natural surrounding teeth. We’ll take impressions, then prepare the natural tooth by altering its shape so the crown fits naturally.
Once the custom crown is bonded in place, it will look, feel, and function like a natural tooth.
Replace Missing Teeth with Fixed Bridges
A fixed dental bridge is a restoration that includes an artificial tooth used to fill the empty space left after a natural tooth is lost.
The bridge is usually made as a single unit and includes the artificial tooth (pontic) held in place by crowns that attach to the adjacent teeth. In certain cases, Dr. Joo may recommend a dental implant to provide greater stability for the bridge.
The process for placing a bridge is similar to that of a crown. We prepare the teeth, take impressions, then send the impressions and images to a top dental lab where your restoration is custom-crafted. At your next visit, Dr. Joo will make any necessary adjustments to the bridge to ensure a perfect fit and a fully functioning tooth.
