Dental Crowns and Bridges Near You
Dental crowns and dental bridges are some of the core services we offer at the Northern Dental Centre for individual teeth or in some cases, full mouth repair. Our team of professional dentists will guide you through the process of receiving crowns and dental bridges near you. But first, let’s take a look at these two procedures we provide at the Northern Dental Centre.
What are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is an artificial cover that fits over the top of your tooth; hence the name. A dental crown will be molded into the shape of your tooth and cemented in place using a special type of dental cement. In most cases, we offer same-day crowns through our CEREC Crown System.
Using the assistance of a computer, a digital 3D image of your tooth and crown which includes precise measurements is designed by our dentists. All necessary edits are made and after the final design is complete, the custom crown is created by a milling machine based on the design. In some cases, we may need to send the crown out to a lab before it can be cemented, requiring you to schedule a second appointment.
So if you have a broken or worn down tooth, a crown could be the perfect option for you. Crowns in Grande Prairie, AB are a long term solution that provides strong protection over your natural tooth.
What are Dental Bridges Near You?
Your dentist may recommend removing a severely decayed or infected tooth and replacing it with a dental bridge. Dental bridges in Grande Prairie, AB can replace one or many missing teeth, but require healthy teeth on either side of the space(s). To replace the space, crowns are placed on top of your natural teeth with a solid unit in the center.
