A great looking smile is one of the first things we notice about a person on a first encounter. The opposite is also true. If your teeth are badly damaged, broken or the colour and shape of your existing crowns don’t exactly match that of your other front teeth, you will be self-conscious about your smile and may find yourself lacking against other peoples’ smiles so much that your self-esteem will be affected.
A good crown investment is one that fixes your tooth once and for all. Dr. Arun Narang and associates in Mississauga and Oakville have the experience and skill to recommend the best type of crown to meet or exceed your expectations. From the initial consultation, to the procedure itself, making your new crowns will take about 10 days.
With today’s technological advancements, crown results are amazing. The crowns look so natural that you'd never know that they're not your teeth. You can't even feel them anymore but everyone will know the difference. If you are constantly meeting new people, feeling good about yourself makes that so much easier and rewarding from a personal, social and professional perspective.
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more natural missing teeth provided you have healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Your adjacent healthy teeth will need to be grinded down to create abutments that will be used to anchor the bridge in place. A bridge consists of a minimum of three units–a pontic (a false tooth) fused between two crowns that are cemented into the abutment teeth.
If you are missing any teeth and are committed to maintaining a good oral hygiene, you may be a good candidate for a bridge. A bridge is a reliable, cost-effective option to fill the space in your mouth left by missing teeth. If left unfilled, this space can cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and can also create gum problems.
Fixed bridges can correct an altered bite, improve you chewing ability and speech, and provide a natural appearance. However, bridges do not stop bone loss and will need to be replaced throughout your lifetime.
Dental implants are the only restoration that can stop bone loss. These artificial titanium roots stimulate the jaw in much the same way that your natural teeth do, thereby stimulating bone growth. In recent years, they have become the gold standard for the replacement of missing teeth.
