Crowns, Bridges and Dentures: Prosthodontics
Restore Aesthetics, Function and Comfort
Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry focused upon restoring aesthetics, function and comfort of damaged or missing teeth with prosthetic materials, including crowns, bridges and dentures. Sunridge Mall Dental Clinic provides prosthodontics in Calgary and surrounding areas.
Dental Crowns Cover Your Teeth
Dental crowns, or caps, are placed over your teeth to help restore their colour, shape, size or strength to improve their overall appearance. Crowns can come in a variety of materials ranging from stainless steel to metals and porcelain-fused-to-metal to all-porcelain and all-ceramic.
Dental Bridges Help Fill Gaps
If you have a gap created by missing teeth, a dental bridge is used to literally help "bridge" the gap. Constructed of two or more crowns on either side of the gap, a bridge is usually supported by your natural teeth or dental implants. A temporary bridge is usually constructed, as impressions of your teeth have to be made to ensure a proper fit.
Dentures Replace Missing Teeth
If you've lost your teeth due to an accident or disease, dentures serve as artificial teeth replacements. There are many types of dentures available, ranging from partial to complete, immediate, conventional and overdentures. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth and facial structure.
