What Are Dental Crowns & Bridges?

Similar to fillings, crowns can be used to restore the shape, appearance, and function of a damaged, decayed, or discoloured tooth. A crown is essentially an artificial tooth that covers the affected tooth. They can be made from various types of materials; depending on the status of the tooth, Dr. Mulhall will make a recommendation for the kind of material to use. At our downtown dental clinic, all of our dental crowns are custom made in a proper laboratory facility. Because each crown is custom-fitted, the final result will look, feel, and function like a regular tooth.

A bridge, on the other hand, is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth in the case of extraction or other circumstance. Bridges extend across an area with no teeth and are typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between two crowns. Bridges are held firmly and permanently in place by your own teeth or by dental implants.

When Do You Need a Dental Crown or Bridge?

A crown is often necessary following a root canal or a large filling. Dr. Mulhall may also recommend a crown as a way to fix and protect a broken tooth or as a cosmetic solution for stained or disproportionately sized teeth. They are durable and long-lasting solutions that can help to restore not only your teeth but also your confidence and comfort!

Dental bridges replace teeth that are missing. Filling the empty spaces is essential to prevent teeth from drifting, which will make them harder to clean. Missing teeth may also result in difficulties eating, speaking, and smiling with confidence. Bridges can either be fastened to crowns that cover two adjacent healthy teeth or to dental implants on either side of the missing tooth. When you need dental crowns and bridges in downtown Calgary, remember the following:

Both crowns and bridges feel, look, and function like normal teeth so you’ll be able to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.

Crowns and bridges require daily brushing and flossing and regular visits to the dentist.

We only use custom-made crowns and bridges in our downtown dental clinic. We partner with a professional lab that guarantees their work.

Bridges and crowns are considered major restorative procedures that are covered under most insurance policies.

Step 1

Local Anesthesia

Before we begin, we’ll apply local anesthesia to eliminate the pain of drilling and reshaping the tooth.

Step 2

In preparation for a dental crown, the tooth is shaped to make room for the restoration. For traditional bridges, the teeth surrounding the missing tooth go through a similar resizing and reshaping process.

Step 3

Impressions

Dr. Mulhall will take impressions of your tooth in order to design a bridge or crown that will look like your natural teeth and will fit comfortably in your mouth. These impressions will serve as a mould for the artificial tooth.

Step 4

We send your impressions to a lab that specializes in fabricating custom dental crowns and bridges. Skilled technicians will ensure the finished piece meets our exact specifications. This process can take from one to two weeks, during which time, we will provide you with a temporary solution to protect your teeth.

Step 5

Placement

Once your crown or bridge is ready, we’ll remove the temporary restoration and place the custom-made one. Dr. Mulhall will ensure the crown or bridge fits properly and is the right shape and colour. They are then secured with dental cement to ensure long-lasting results.

Step 6

Following the procedure, you’ll have a smile you can be proud of! You may experience minimal discomfort or sensitivity that will soon pass, and you’ll be left with an artificial tooth that not only looks and feels great but also performs just like your other teeth.
