Crowns or caps are replacements for individual teeth. They can be made out of a few different types of materials such as gold and porcelain or lithium silicates( a type of porcelain) or zirconia. Each material has it’s own benefits for different situations and crowns could take as many as 2 or 3 or appointments or as little as one appointment depending on the circumstance.
Bridges are crowns joined together to “bridge” a gap when teeth are missing. They can also be made from different materials. Both Crowns and bridges in all the different configurations are available at Riverbend Dental Health. Dr. Kent Stringham, a general dentist, is the owner and dentist at Riverbend Dental Health in SE Calgary.
