Crowns & Bridges

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is cracked, broken, chipped, or badly decayed, a dental crown may be the best restorative solution. A dental crown is used to protect and cover a damaged tooth to restore its functionality. Crowns can also be used to cover dental implants or to cover a tooth after root canal therapy.

Dr. Šarić at Smile Design provides beautiful porcelain crowns that can be an attractive cosmetic dentistry option, since they can produce a whiter, shapelier, and more balanced appearance. To craft crowns, we use iTero™ technology, an advanced piece of equipment that eliminates the need for messy trays and provides an incredibly comfortable fit in a remarkably simple process.

Porcelain Crowns – The Placement Process

If you live in Mississauga and want more information on porcelain crowns, dental bridges, and how you may benefit from iTero™ technology, contact Smile Design to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Šarić. We welcome patients from throughout the Greater Toronto Area including Brampton, Toronto, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton.

Dental Bridges

When there is a gap in a patient’s smile left by a missing tooth, we may recommend that a dental bridge be placed. A dental bridge anchors an artificial tooth (a pontic) between two natural teeth covered by crowns (abutments). The bridge is bonded to the crowns on either side of the gap to protect the integrity of the bite and maintain a healthy, vibrant smile. At Smile Design, we use iTero™ technology, in a process similar to that used for porcelain crowns, to fit patients for dental bridges.

Typically, two trips to our office in Mississauga, Ontario are required to place dental bridges. Watch this video for more information on the treatment process:

Types of Dental Bridges

Smile Design provides the following types of dental bridges, all of which can be crafted using iTero™ digital impressions:

  • Fixed bridges – Fixed bridges consist of a filler tooth (pontic) anchored between two natural teeth covered by porcelain crowns. Fixed bridges are among the most popular bridges.

  • “Maryland” bridges – Also known as composite bonds, “Maryland” bridges are typically used to replace the front teeth. Metal bands are bonded to the abutment teeth (to hold the pontic in place) and are camouflaged with a white composite resin.

  • Cantilever bridge – This type is often used when there are teeth on only one side of the span. A typical three unit cantilever bridge consists of two abutment crowns that are positioned side by side on the same side of the missing tooth space. The pontic is then connected to the two crowns, which extend into the missing tooth space.

  • Implant-supported bridges – Dental implants can be used to anchor a dental bridge in place. Implant support is the best option for dental bridges, particularly when there are several consecutive teeth missing.
