Churchill Smiles Dentistry Offers Dental Crowns and Bridges in Mississauga, Ontario
Permanent crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices used to strengthen damaged teeth and can improve a tooth’s appearance, alignment, and shape. At Churchill Smiles Dentistry, we provide dental crowns and bridges for patients in Mississauga and all the surrounding areas. Bridges and crowns restore a natural look while resolving oral health issues at the same time.
There are several different types of crowns and bridges available, and we can advise you on which option will work best for your oral health and your lifestyle. Expertise and modern technology like digital scans and impressions are used to match your crown or bridge device to the shape and color of your existing teeth.
What Are Dental Crowns?
A crown is a cap or covering for a tooth. Crowns are mostly used to protect a damaged tooth or cover an implant. We may also recommend crowns to:
- Cover a poorly shaped or discolored tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Replace a large filling that does not have enough original tooth remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
What Are Dental Bridges?
At Churchill Smiles Dentistry, we provide patients with dental bridges if they want to replace a tooth without wearing dentures or undergoing surgery. The new tooth is held in place by two crowns and is made from ceramic or porcelain material to match the surrounding teeth. The teeth on either side of the missing tooth are known as abutment teeth and serve as anchors for the replacement tooth. Dental bridges can help you properly chew food, speak, and maintain appropriate facial shape.
Why Tooth Replacement is Important
Replacing missing teeth with either a crown or a bridge helps prevent other teeth in the mouth from moving out of place or drifting apart, creating a gap, which can result in a bad bite. Being able to place your jaws evenly together when biting is an important function that bridges and crowns help restore.
By providing proper care and treatment to repair dental structure and preserve beauty, Churchill Smiles Dentistry helps our patients enjoy lasting oral health.

A dental crown is a cap that is placed over the original tooth. A patient may need a crown if they have a large cavity that has little of the original tooth left and a filling is no possible. A crown may also be used in the case of a broken tooth where a part is missing, to cover a dental implant, or to secure the tooth after a root canal.
A dental bridge us required when there is more than one tooth missing and a larger gap needs to be filled. The bridge is secured in place by anchoring to neighboring teeth or a dental implant.
