OUR SERVICES - Crowns & Bridges
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.

Dental Crowns

Over time, teeth can be damaged, cracked or weakened by decay. Dr. Gohari uses a crown to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Crowns are made to match the color of your natural teeth, and besides strengthening an impaired tooth, these can be used to improve your teeth's appearance, shape or alignment.

Dental crowns can be fashioned from ceramic, zirconia and porcelain fused to gold.

We may recommend a crown to:
  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking, or hold together segments of a cracked tooth
  • Restore an already damaged tooth
  • Replace a large filling when there is not enough tooth remaining
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a badly shaped or severely discoloured tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment


Dental Bridges

Dental bridges, also known as fixed removable dentures, literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A typical bridge is made up of two crowns (one on either side of the gap) and a false tooth/teeth in between. Bridges are attached to surrounding natural teeth or dental implants for support. The anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and the false teeth are called pontics. Pontics can be made from porcelain, alloys, gold or a combination on materials.

If you have lost a tooth/teeth, bridges can restore your smile, your ability to properly speak and chew and maintain your facial structure. Bridges can also prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of position.
