The dentists at Fort Rouge Dental Group in Winnipeg's Riverview community provide dental crowns and bridges as treatments to correct your smile and fill in the gaps in your smile.
Dental crowns are artificial teeth used to cover decayed teeth, in order to protect the natural tooth structure from further damage. Crowns are a popular restorative option for patients who have undergone a root canal, or other massive dental procedure because teeth that have been repaired with crowns look and work very much like natural teeth. Crowns are typically made out of porcelain or metal and are used where a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or any other dental procedure.
A dental bridge is two or more crowns and a false tooth/teeth in between. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. There are different types of bridges and your dentist will communicate with you the best options for your particular case.
