Dental Crowns or Caps
Dental crowns are a cost-effective alternative to expensive dental implants. As a provider of dental crowns in Etobicoke, Toronto we at Princeview Dental realize that dental implants may not be in the budget of many of our patients. That's why we offer dental bridges and caps as an alternative to more costly dental implant procedures.
Crowns and caps can be used for a number of purposes. For example, if a tooth has started to decay around a filling, a crown can save it. A crown or cap can also hold a cracked tooth together; however, we recommend having the dental procedure performed immediately, as waiting may cause further damage to the tooth. In addition, if you have receding gums and suffer from hot or cold sensitivity, a crown or cap can provide relief.
As a provider of dental crowns in Etobicoke, Toronto, we look at each patient based on their needs and make a recommendation for the most effective dental treatment from there. If a tooth with a filling suffers a fracture and is too weak to hold the filling, then a crown or cap can save it. However, if the fracture is deep, a root canal may be required to save the tooth.
Another way to save a tooth without resorting to an implant is using dental bridges instead of crowns. If you're missing a tooth at the back of your mouth, you may not worry about it, but you should; without it, your teeth can start to shift, leading to cause tooth decay and gum disease. It can also affect the look of your smile and hinder your ability to chew your food.
Dental bridges act as their name implies: a bridge that replaces the missing tooth or teeth, preventing many of the oral health issues that can arise as a result of missing teeth. And best of all, it's an affordable alternative to a dental implant that will prevent your teeth from shifting, as well as improve your bite and take care of any minor speech impediments caused by missing teeth.
As a provider of bridges and dental crowns in Etobicoke, Toronto, Princeview Dental is proud to offer bridges and crowns to our patients at an affordable cost.
