Dental Crowns & Bridges in Steinbach
Your overall health is directly linked to your oral health but sometimes the inevitable happens and you may find yourself with a missing or cracked tooth. It is important to visit your local Steinbach dentist as soon as possible. The two different methods are: Dental crowns and bridges.
A dental crown, also called a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth that is bonded to your tooth and used to cover a damaged or once-decayed tooth. The crown restores the tooth and protects it from further damage. A tooth that has been fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth.
A few reasons people may visit their local Steinbach Dentist to get a crown:
- discolored or mishaped tooth
- a tooth that has had a root canal or large filling
- a fractured or cracked tooth
If you are dealing with any of the above named dental issues, you can get more information about the benefits of dental crowns from your local Steinbach dentist.

A dental bridge, is a dental restoration procedure that replaces one or more missing teeth. The bridge extends across an area that has no teeth and is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between 2 crowns. (See Dental Crowns above). The bridge is held firmly in place by your own teeth on each side of the missing one(s) or by dental implants.
It is important to replace the lost tooth with an artificial tooth as soon as possible. This will prevent the teeth that are left in the mouth from drifting out of position and causing jaw problems. Teeth that drift out of line are more difficult to keep clean and are more likely to get gum disease and cavities. You can learn more about dental bridges through your Steinbach dentist office as they can provide you with more in depth information.
