Crowns & Bridges
Dental restorations like crowns and bridges are frequently used to help correct or replace teeth that have been compromised.
What are dental crowns?
Crowns are some of the most versatile dental treatment options available. We use dental crowns to replace teeth, restore severe tooth damage, strengthen weak teeth, and cosmetically enhance a person’s smile.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps on top of damaged or broken teeth to restore shape, strength, function, and aesthetics. Crowns last a very long time, and you won’t even notice it’s in there!
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges are an excellent and durable tooth replacement option. Using two supporting teeth, we can bridge the gap left by a missing tooth with a beautiful, natural-looking crown.
Bridges are used to fill the gap created by one or more teeth that are missing. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns that are on either side of the gap. Either dental implants or natural teeth can support bridges.
While we believe your natural teeth offer the best overall look and feel, our team at Moss Dental in Victoria provides lifelike options for those needed a replacement. In some cases, dentures are the most appropriate option for patients. Our Victoria dentists create custom-made dentures for patients with several or all of their natural teeth missing. These dentures fit securely to ensure they do not shift out of place or negatively affect your ability to speak or chew. Due to the quality materials we use, you can enjoy durable, long-lasting results that help you live life to its fullest smiling, laughing, and eating included without interruption.
Dentures, whether full or partial, are typically recommended for patients who require more extensive treatment for the replacement of most or all missing teeth. Our dentists recommend dentures when:
- Most or all teeth are missing due to tooth decay, gum disease, or other reasons
- Most of the remaining, natural teeth are in poor condition (damaged, decayed, etc.)
- Gums are healthy
