Crowns & Bridges

A depiction of dental bridge At Bayley Dental in Waterloo ON, we offer a variety of restorative solutions, allowing us to customize treatment to the specific needs of each patient. Crowns and bridges are tried-and-true dental restorations that have been used successfully for many generations. However, that does not mean advances in modern dentistry have passed them by.

Today we have a much greater variety of materials, including cosmetic, high-strength porcelain. Modern materials, combined with precision accuracy in design, make today’s crowns and bridges beautiful, reliable, and long-lasting solutions for missing or damaged teeth.

Dental crowns

A crown encases the tooth in a thick layer of protective porcelain. It may be used to repair damage that is too severe for a dental filling, or protect a weakened tooth. The size, shape, and colour of a dental crown replicates that of a natural tooth, for esthetic and functional restoration.

The benefits include:
  • Protect a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Correct a misshapen tooth
  • Restore the appearance of your smile

Dental bridges

A bridge is a fixed restoration that uses artificial teeth to fill the space left by missing teeth. The crowns are bonded to your teeth, usually those on each side of the gap. It quite literally bridges the gap.

The benefits include:
  • Natural looking tooth replacement allows you to smile with confidence
  • Replacing a missing tooth will prevent other teeth from shifting in the direction of the gap
  • Improve chewing efficiency

Crown and bridge procedure

  • The first step is an examination and treatment planning.
  • Next, the diseased portion of the tooth is removed, and the remaining structure is shaped.
  • After taking impressions, a temporary restoration is placed.
  • When your permanent crown or bridge is ready, we will schedule your final appointment, during which the new restoration is cemented in place.
