At Floss Family Dental, we offer a wide range of dental services, including crowns and bridges.
Crowns are essentially a protective helmet, placed over the top of a tooth to restore its shape, function or appearance. Crowns may be needed to:
- Restore severely broken down, worn or heavily filled teeth
- Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
- Protect a tooth that is vulnerable to fracture
- Restore a tooth following root canal treatment
Bridges can be used to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. If a gap is left empty, it’s not uncommon for teeth to shift and rotate into these spaces, resulting in misalignment and increased risk of gum disease and decay. The bridge itself consists of a false tooth (called a pontic) which is permanently attached to adjacent crowns to prevent these issues from occurring.
If you feel that you may need a crown or bridge, or are looking for a dental practice with expertise in crowns and bridges, please feel free to contact our team today to book your appointment.
