Bridges & Crowns

You can trust our caring dental team at Northgate Dental Centre North Burnaby, to help restore a failing tooth, correct your bite, or add strength to a tooth, with a crown or a bridge.

What is a Dental Crown? 

When a tooth is weakened due to a trauma, large fillings, a root canal treatment or even decay, a crown may be required to restore it to optimal health and function.

A crown, also referred to as a “cap”, is a tooth or gold coloured covering that is permanently placed over an existing tooth.

It can be used to add strength, correct the bite or improve the overall appearance of a tooth.

All ceramic porcelain crowns may be used to create an extremely natural-looking appearance for your front teeth.

Dental crowns can help to:

  • Repair fractured teeth
  • Restore decayed teeth
  • Fix cracked teeth
  • Cover up surface stains
  • Enhance the tooth’s appearance

What is a Dental Bridge? 

Achieving a natural looking and realistic smile after tooth loss is possible with dental bridges.

A fixed bridge is required when replacing one or more missing teeth. It is permanently cemented to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth.

The benefits of a fixed bridge include restoring the natural bite, preventing opposing and adjacent teeth from moving into the space, improved chewing function and enhanced appearance.

An implant is an alternative to a fixed bridge.

Dental bridges can provide a variety of benefits such as:

  • Replacing missing teeth
  • Improving your speaking ability
  • Enhancing your chewing ability
  • Strengthening your bite
  • Make you comfortable
