A missing tooth can have a profound effect on a person’s confidence when facing the rest of the world, increasing self-consciousness about smiling, speaking, and even eating in public.
Our dentists and our team helps restore a renewed sense of self-confidence for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Using revolutionary materials and restorative dental procedures, Our dentists can place dental crowns and dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
One or more missing teeth not only hampers a healthy sense of self-confidence, but can also alter the overall healthy function of the mouth. When a tooth is lost, the rest of the surrounding teeth shift, causing misalignment of the bite. This can lead to discomfort and pain when eating or speaking, as well as a greater chance of the development of periodontal disease.
Dental Crowns Look and Feel Like Natural Teeth
Crowns can repair damaged teeth
Cité Dentaire Sainte-Dorothee's dentists places dental crowns to strengthen a broken or cracked tooth, allowing the tooth to remain in the mouth. Made of durable and safe materials like porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, ceramic and porcelain, the crown fits over the prepared natural tooth, providing support and improving the tooth’s appearance.
Dental crowns can take up to two appointments to permanently place. We must prepare the tooth and take an impression to send to the lab. A temporary crown is placed until the permanent one is ready.
Dental Bridges Provide Healthier Smiles
A solution for missing teeth
If one or more teeth are missing, the dentist can prepare and place a dental bridge to restore the natural look and feel of a patient’s smile. Generally, two or more crowns are used to make a dental bridge. The bridge then attaches to surrounding teeth.
A dental bridge can be fixed or removable, and can take two or three appointments to place permanently. The dentist will reshape the existing teeth as needed, then place a temporary bridge while the customized permanent dental bridge is being prepared.
There is no need to feel self-conscious about your smile!
