CROWNS / BRIDGES
At Brock/Starr Dental Care, we consider every solution for our patients. Two very common options are crowns and bridges.
A crown is a covering for a tooth that has incurred damage to its biting surface. This could be due to a cracked filling, which leads to decay in the tooth. If it is decided a crown is needed, any decay or old filling material will be removed. The tooth is then prepped and an impression is taken to properly recreate its exact shape. Then, a temporary crown is inserted until the final one is ready.
When a tooth is missing, one option may be a bridge. This type of implant is a porcelain tooth replacement that is fused to a metal “bridge” between the two teeth on either side of the missing one. Impressions are taken to ensure a seamless and comfortable fit. Then, a temporary bridge is inserted until the final one is ready.
We now proudly offer painless injections to all of our patients. Painless injections work by sending a signal to your nerve receptors to essentially close the “pain gate” to your brain, allowing you to enjoy a pain-free and low-stress dental experience.
For any questions about crowns and bridges, or to discuss possible treatment options, call us at 905-668-3884.
