Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are a long-term solution to missing or damaged teeth. These restorative procedures involve the use of prosthetic devices that look and feel completely natural. We use a dental crown (also referred to as a cap) when the structure of your tooth is fractured or damaged and a dental bridge when you have one or more teeth missing.
Our cosmetic and restorative dental services are meant to help patients improve the function and appearance of their teeth. Your smile is the first thing people notice about you, so let’s work together to protect your dental health and smile. Our Stoney Creek Dental Office is dedicated to protecting our patients’ oral health by providing dental services like dental crowns and bridges.

What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is an artificial tooth that can be made from various materials. It’s often made from porcelain or ceramic so it will match the natural colour and texture of your teeth. Crowns can also be made of gold alloys if it’s used to replace a tooth in the back of your mouth as this gives it more strength. A metal dental cap may have porcelain bonded to its exterior which makes it more natural-looking and provides extra strength.

The Dental Crown Procedure
Our office staff will take x-rays to check the surrounding bone and roots of the tooth to assess the situation. Before fitting a crown, we’ll need to file down your tooth to make room for it. If you have a large area of tooth missing, we may have to build it up with filling material to support the cap.
We’ll take an impression of your tooth to be used as a mold for the crown and send it to a dental lab. In the meantime, we’ll fit a temporary cap to protect your teeth while you’re waiting for your permanent crown.
When your permanent crown is ready, you will visit our Stoney Creek clinic so our dental care team can fit it properly. We will check the colour and fit of the cap using a local anesthetic to numb your tooth. The dentist will then cement the new crown in position. Once treatment is complete, we will ensure you’re happy with the results.
