At Centennial Smiles, Dr Andrew Dunn proudly offers both tooth-coloured dental crowns and bridges to protect both the health and beauty of our patients' smiles.
Dr Dunn is a perfectionist – always focusing on the best outcome for our patients and providing the gentle, compassionate care that makes each dental appointment a positive experience.
Teeth face many challenges each day – chewing, sport, disease and accidents. Whenever possible, we will reinforce and protect teeth with the proper restoration. In cases of broken teeth, advanced decay, or after a root canal – a dental crown is often the first choice. We also create tooth-coloured dental crowns to replace unsightly, metal dentistry of the past.
A dental crown covers the tooth structure and protects it during daily use. Our crowns are durable and aesthetic with the added benefit that we can complete the dental crown process in a single visit with CEREC technology.
Rather than traditional impressions, we will digitally scan the tooth and use CAD/CAM technology to create a ceramic crown during your appointment.
Caring for dental crowns is much like caring for your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, regular dental exams, cleanings and avoiding biting into anything too hard are the best ways to protect your smile.
If you suffer from teeth grinding, a night guard will help protect your dentistry and your natural teeth.
A dental bridge replaces one or multiple missing teeth. Replacing a missing tooth as soon as possible is important because a gap in your smile allows your remaining teeth to move or rotate, causing problems with alignment.
At Centennial Smiles, we recommend porcelain bridges for their durability and natural look. A bridge uses one or more adjacent teeth to anchor an artificial tooth in place. This artificial tooth acts as a placeholder and protects healthy bite function.
For multiple missing teeth, a dental implant bridge can add reinforcement and stability, making it possible to choose a dental bridge rather than a partial denture in some circumstances.
Dr Dunn will happily discuss all options to replace your missing teeth and respect the choice you make for your smile.
Special dental floss or small brushes assist with keeping the tissue beneath the dental bridge healthy. We can demonstrate this at your appointment, helping you get the most out of your home care.
