Crowns and bridges
Various situations may require the installation of a dental crown or bridge. A crown is typically used to protect a tooth that is severely damaged or weakened by a deep cavity or a crack, or as a result of an accident, a root canal treatment, or a major filling. It is actually a prosthesis that covers the damaged tooth. It is custom-made from a digital impression, which is why it fits perfectly with the other teeth. This restoration is a fairly simple procedure that only requires one or two appointments. With good dental hygiene and regular visits to S.O.S. Sourire, your crown should last for many years!
A fixed bridge is another type of restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of an artificial tooth that is held in place by the adjacent teeth, which can be either natural teeth or dental implants. It is essential to ensure that a missing tooth is replaced to prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting and causing functional problems.
