Diabetes and dentistry – Ricardo’s Journey to a healthy mouth
Dental crowns are made from a ceramic or porcelain material and fabricated to look just like a natural tooth. When placing a crown, we carefully remove a layer of enamel from the treated tooth so that it can support the crown overtop. Once in place, your crown will protect the tooth, look natural and allow you to use it just like normal again. Similarly, dental bridges are a collection of crowns fused together and used to span the gap of missing teeth. We use bridges to replace one or more teeth and they are supported by abutment teeth, which are prepared similar to that of a crown. Both crowns and bridges can also be supported by a dental implant in order to restore a replaced tooth. Benefits you can expect after your dental crown and bridge treatment include:
