Dental Crowns - Bristol Circle
The dentists at Dental Mississauga offer dental crowns to fix broken or damaged teeth. Dental Crowns are a type of restoration which covers or "caps" a tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size, as well as serving to increase the strength and improve overall appearance. Dental crowns are required when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth, or the physical state of the tooth is broken down to the point of which a composite filling would still be an option.

Dental crowns can also be employed to seal cracks within a tooth, attach a bridge, protect weaker teeth from being fractured, restore already damaged teeth, or to cover misshapen or discoloured teeth. They are a very versatile option in terms of overall oral health.
Dental crowns can be made of different kinds of metals, porcelains or porcelain fused to metal. They last approximately ten years if you take excellent care of them due to their strength. Treat your crown(s) as you would any other tooth in your mouth, it is vital to brush at least twice a day and floss to strengthen the gums and remove potential materials that may cause plaque to form in the spaces between the teeth causing decay or gum disease.
