Crowns and Bridges
Crowns in Candiac are a way to completely cover the tooth, restoring its original shape and size. A crown protects and restores strength to dental structures that can not be repaired using a conventional filling. Indications for a crown are broken or fractured teeth, cavities or extensive restoration, a tooth with a root canal, an aesthetic improvement or a cracked tooth.
Despite the existence of several types of crowns, porcelain ones are the most popular because of their resemblance to natural teeth. They are very durable and will provide you with a nice smile for years to come.
As for the bridge (also called fixed bridge), it allows to replace one or more missing tooth in a fixed manner. The pontic (or artificial tooth) is permanently attached to the neighboring teeth with crowns.
