Dental Bridges in Vaughan
If you are missing teeth and having trouble speaking or chewing, or are noticing strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and beautiful again. Bridges literally “bridge” gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. Bridges are semi-permanent – they can only be removed by a dentist – and are comfortable and proven to strengthen teeth.
The bridge is fixed on the adjacent teeth, located on both sides of the free gap in a place where there are no teeth. With the installation of this design, all inconveniences associated with a removable prosthesis are eliminated, since this design is not removable. The fixed bridge is a device usually consisting of three components - a pontic (artificial tooth) located between two crowns fixed to adjacent teeth.
If you have missing teeth, and you are well aware of the state of oral hygiene, you are a good candidate for such treatment. With missing teeth, bridges are the most natural choice for replacing them. If the space remains empty for a long time, this may cause displacement of the neighboring teeth, which makes them more susceptible to the occurrence of caries and gum disease, and this in turn can lead to tooth loss. Fixed bridges not only correct the bite, promote the chewing function of the teeth, improve speech, but also protect the facial features from deformation, i.e. helps keep your face young.BOOK A CONSULTATION TODAY
Dental Crowns in Vaughan
Sometimes referred to as “dental caps,” Dr. Maryna Kharkavets uses crowns to improve the appearance and health of your smile. If you’re suffering from teeth that are chipped, discolored, or have decay or breakage, consider crowning those teeth as a way to get that strong, beautiful, and natural-looking smile that you want.
Ever wondered what the difference is between a crown and a filling, dental inlay, or dental onlay? Crowns cover the entire tooth from the gum line up—so in essence, a crown becomes your new tooth surface because it completely envelopes it. On the other hand, fillings, inlays, and onlays only cover or fill a portion of the tooth, so your natural tooth surface still shows alongside. One similarity that crowns and fillings do have, however, is that many times they can be created from similar materials like porcelain, ceramic, or even gold alloy. Not sure which material makes the most sense for your crown? Ask Dr. Maryna Kharkavets to tell you more about your crown options.BOOK A CONSULTATION TODAY
