Crowns & Bridges

Examining your teeth is the way we let you know if you need a crown or bridge. Crowns and bridges protect your teeth from further harm. They are prosthetic devices cemented on your existing teeth or in the spaces where your original teeth used to be.
At Stoney Trail Dental, we make your experience unique and your smile brighter!

Crowns

When you need a large filling but there is not enough tooth left or your tooth is damaged, we provide you with a hollow artificial tooth called a crown. 

Crowns protect your weak tooth from fracturing, covers your root canal treated tooth, adds natural colour to your discoloured or poorly shaped tooth, blankets dental implants and even attaches to a bridge. 

Caps, what crowns are also known as, can last for many years. Caps come in many forms.

Crown Types

Porcelain

  • Most natural look
  • More brittle than metal or composite and may chip easier

Metal

  • Made of gold
  • Last a long time without chipping or breakage
  • Wear down opposing teeth

Porcelain Fused to Metal

  • Natural look
  • Stronger than porcelain or composite
  • Less likely to chip compared to porcelain or ceramic
  • Metal may show if your gums are thin or shrink

We brief you on the crown process prior to your treatment because we want to make sure you are prepared.

Composite

  • Looks natural
  • Chips less easily than porcelain but wears quicker with chewing
  • Stains easily with brushing because this removes the highly polished surface

Bridges

Also known as a fixed bridge, a bridge is a hollow artificial tooth that goes over your dental implant or natural tooth. When you are missing one or more teeth, we will provide a bridge for your mouth. A bridge is cemented to your natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.

Bridges come in many options. We will advise you which choice is ideal for your tooth and gum structure.

Types of Bridges 

1

Traditional

If you have natural teeth on either side of the gap where your tooth is missing, we will use a traditional bridge. Each side of your missing tooth is prepared for crowns.

2

Implant

If you do not have enough healthy teeth or teeth in general to support a bridge, or several/all teeth are missing then we use an implant. We anchor an implant to existing dental implants, surgically placing them into your jawbone.

3

Custom Made

Custom made bridges are custom formed and anchored to your dental implants.

4

Resin-Bonded or Maryland

If you have missing teeth in the front of your mouth we use a resin-bonded bridge. We connect your artificial teeth to metal bonds and cement them to the back of your natural teeth.

Taking Care of Your
Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges can come loose or fall out so we suggest you take great care of them, as you would your natural teeth. Make sure you brush your crown or bridge with fluoride toothpaste and floss, twice daily. 

Our team at Stoney Trail Dental continues to monitor you after your appointment and wants to check up and check in on the procedure you have had done. We want you to keep coming back for checkups and cleanings ensuring your dentist can help keep your teeth and gums in excellent shape. 

Following your appointment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your dentists. These instructions are available for you below. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns at 403-248-2948.
