Crowns and Bridges in Calgary, AB
No matter how conscientious we are about caring for our teeth, most of us will face a tooth repair at some point in our lives.
If your tooth becomes injured, fractured, or decayed beyond what a filling is able to repair, Dr. Crawford and Dr. Reddy will recommend that you get a dental crown. This is the best option for restoring both function and beauty to your smile.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is designed to replace your whole tooth while protecting your natural root structure. It fits over your remaining tooth like a cap and delivers all the functions, such as eating, smiling, talking, and chewing, that you had with your natural tooth. You’ll also be able to brush and floss normally, which means that your new crown is easy to care for. In fact, with the right home care and regular check-ups, it has the potential to last for 10 to 15 years.
Completing a dental crown typically takes about two weeks. You’ll come to our office to have your tooth prepared by Dr. Crawford or Dr. Reddy, and you’ll leave wearing a temporary crown. We’ll send our specifications for your new restoration to the dental laboratory that will fabricate your crown from high-quality porcelain, and when it’s done, you’ll return to Calgary Dental House to have it placed.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Patients who are missing one or more adjacent teeth may find a dental bridge to be an ideal solution. Using dental crowns as anchors on your healthy teeth, a bridge attaches aesthetically pleasing prosthetic teeth to the anchors to fill in the space left by your missing teeth. Keeping your anchor teeth clean and healthy will help ensure the endurance of your bridge.
Dental implants are also options to be anchors for your bridge. They provide an even more stable and secure fit while also protecting the health of your bone, which offers better longevity for your bridge.
At Calgary Dental House, we are committed to providing high-quality dentistry to our patients, and you’ll see this in the restorations you receive. We work with the top dental laboratories in the area that utilise the finest materials to deliver restorations you can trust and rely on for years to come.
For patients who feel anxious about dental procedures, we offer nitrous oxide to help you relax and feel comfortable during your treatment. Nitrous is a breathable gas administered through a mask worn during your procedure, and it’s safe to use during most types of appointments. Nitrous leaves your system as soon as the mask is removed, which means you’ll be able to drive yourself home and resume your normal activities.
