The team of Winnipeg dentists at Munroe Dental Centre use dental crowns and bridges to help restore the appearance and function of your smile.
What are Crowns & Bridges?
Bridges and crowns are both restorative dental treatments that may help to restore both the function and appearance of your smile.
They may be used to fill space left by missing teeth, helping you to maintain your natural facial shape while returning your ability to both speak and chew properly.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth using a dental crown or bridge, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Dental crowns are hollow, artificial teeth that are placed over an entire decayed or damaged tooth to restore its original shape, size and colour. Dental crowns improve the strength, function and appearance of a broken tooth that may otherwise be lost.
Crowns are made from quite durable materials and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and metal. They look and functions quite similarly to natural teeth and, if cared for properly, may last 10 years or even longer!
Dental bridges are natural-looking restorations that bridge the gap left by a missing tooth or multiple teeth in your mouth. Bridges of artificial teeth are affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap in order to fill in the space between teeth.
A bridge helps to prevent your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which could lead to more serious dental issues including gum disease.
