Dental Crowns & Bridges in Red Deer
Southpointe Dental in Red Deer provides crowns and bridges as a common dental treatment to contribute to the health and appearance of your smile.
Dental crowns are a type of restoration that covers or “caps” the entire visible region of the tooth. Unlike dental fillings, which applies bonding material directly to the tooth, crowns are created in the dental lab using digital impressions. In addition, crowns restore a wider surface area of the tooth. As a result, crowns are recommended when a tooth has sustained heavy fracture or damage.
Dental crowns can be me made of gold alloy, metal-porcelain, or porcelain/ceramic. Although gold crowns provide better protection, porcelain crowns are more attractive since the material is the same shade as your teeth. Once porcelain crowns are attached, they seamlessly blend in with your surrounding teeth.

In addition, dental bridges stabilize your remaining teeth. One of the consequences of missing teeth is that it places additional pressure on your remaining ones. A dental bridge strengthens your remaining teeth and prevents shifting. By doing so, you’re able to chew with more force and enjoy a wide selection of foods.
Our family dentists in Red Deer will examine your mouth to see if you are a candidate for a dental crown or bridge. For bridges, we will check that you have enough bone tissues to support a bridge. Digital X-rays will be used to get a complete look at your oral tissues. If you are a good candidate, your anchoring teeth will have to be reduced in size to prepare placement for the dental bridge. The dental bridge is created using digital impressions of the teeth. This process provides a faster and more accurate way to create your custom-made dental bridges.
