Dental Bridges and Crowns in Markham, ON
Named for the way that they “bridge” the gaps between teeth lost to trauma or decay, bridges restore your smile’s health and beauty by placing durable artificial teeth where your natural teeth are missing. If your missing teeth make you feel self-conscious, or you’re noticing problems with speaking, chewing, or other everyday tasks, ask Dr. Lung if a bridge may be right for you. Created and only able to be removed by your dentist, bridges offer a comfortable, semi-permanent option that can enhance your smile and improve the health of your natural teeth.
Crowns in Markham, ON
Sometimes referred to as “dental caps,” Kelvin Lung uses crowns to improve the appearance and health of your smile. If you’re suffering from teeth that are chipped, discolored, or have decay or breakage, consider crowning those teeth as a way to get that strong, beautiful, and natural-looking smile that you want.
Ever wondered what the difference is between a crown and a filling , dental inlay, or dental onlay? Crowns cover the entire tooth from the gum line up—so in essence, a crown becomes your new tooth surface because it completely envelopes it. On the other hand, fillings, inlays, and onlays only cover or fill a portion of the tooth, so your natural tooth surface still shows alongside . One similarity that crowns and fillings do have, however, is that many times they can be created from similar materials like porcelain, ceramic, or even gold alloy. Not sure which material makes the most sense for your crown? Ask Kelvin Lung to tell you more about your crown options.
