Fix Damaged Teeth With Crowns & Bridges

Over time, teeth can become damaged, cracked or weakened by tooth decay. Dentists use a crown to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Crowns are made to match the colour of your natural teeth and, besides strengthening an impaired tooth, they can be used to improve the appearance, shape or alignment of your teeth.

At American Smile, we offer several options to replace some - or all - of your missing teeth.

  • Crowns are "cemented" onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by your dentist.
  • Bridges are anchored to your adjacent teeth and can be removable or fixed, depending on your needs.
  • Dentures (complete and partial) are an option if you’ve lost all or most of your teeth.
  • Implants and implant supported dentures are an alternative to traditional dentures.

Dental Crowns at American Smile

Dental Crowns can be fashioned from stainless steel, ceramic, acrylic, gold and metal alloys. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, crowns are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by your dentist.

Dental Bridges at American Smile

Dental Bridges also known as fixed removable dentures, literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A typical bridge is made up of two crowns (one on either side of the gap) and a false tooth/teeth in between. Bridges are attached to the surrounding natural teeth or dental implants for support. The anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and the false teeth are called pontics. Pontics can be made from porcelain, alloys, gold or a combination of materials.

If you have lost a tooth/teeth, bridges can restore your smile, your ability to properly speak and chew and maintain your facial structure. Bridges can also prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of position. Depending on which type of crown or bridge your dentist suggests, its longevity depends on the foundation. This is why it’s vital to keep your remaining teeth strong and healthy, by brushing with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes twice a day and flossing daily.
