Single Visit Dental Crowns and Bridges Near You
Crowns are a good alternative to large fillings when a large amount of tooth structure has been lost. When a tooth is so weak that there is a significant risk of fracture, a crown can provide essential support. They’re also versatile enough to cover a misshapen or discoloured tooth, to cover dental implants, and to cap a tooth after root canal therapy.
When you lose teeth but the gap left behind remains unfilled, your remaining teeth gradually shift or rotate to fill that empty space. This unnatural relocation causes problems in your jaw and misalignment of your teeth and bite. Bridges anchored to healthy teeth on each side of the gap can fill that space with replacement teeth that are referred to as pontics.
Versatile and important as crowns and bridges are, they have had the disadvantage of needing at least two appointments — sometimes separated by weeks — to plan, prepare for, manufacture, and fit. During that gap between appointments, your crown or bridge is prepared off-site while you wear a temporary restoration.
The delays related to traditional crowns and bridges have been eliminated. We can provide single visit dental crowns and bridges in Calgary, AB with the CEREC — CERamic REConstruction — system. We use the CEREC system to plan, build, and provide custom-designed ceramic crowns and bridges in a single appointment. This is possible thanks to our use of three dimensional digital images and CAD. The ceramic material from which crowns and bridges are milled is resistant to plaque, non-abrasive, and blends naturally with your remaining healthy teeth.
