What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is placed to hold a dental bridge or top off an implant. Additionally, it can be used for aesthetic purposes as well. For further details, get in touch with our highly qualified dentist. Dental crowns are the best dental restoration alternative for several dental problems such as chips, cracks, cavities, and decay. It usually takes two visits to the dentist for the entire procedure to be completed.

How long do dental crowns last?

It all depends on your oral hygiene. If you maintain a regular oral hygiene routine, it can last for about ten years, in some cases even longer. Similar to your natural teeth, you can brush and floss your crown. Once you get a dental crown, our professional dentists will clearly explain to you the after-care steps that you must follow to ensure your dental crown is well-looked after. However, you must keep in mind that a dental crown is not as strong as your natural teeth. Here at Cosmodont Dentistry, we strongly advise not using your teeth to cut or open, even biting down on hard, sharp, and complex items. So, if you want the best dental crown in Mississauga or Brampton, please do not hesitate to reach out to our professional and friendly staff.


During your first visit, we will prepare your tooth structure and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, make a temporary crown to place on the tooth, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown. At your next visit, we will try-in the crown to ensure a good fit and then cement the crown in place. When a tooth is compromised by decay or damage, we may suggest a crown, inlay, or onlay. These restorations, made in a lab from fine dental porcelain, will blend seamlessly with your teeth, return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and maintain your all-white smile.

Dental Bridges

What are Dental Bridges?

Are you missing multiple teeth or just one tooth? It can become quite a challenge to chew food properly, even speak freely and smile with confidence. Getting a dental bridge is a cost-effective alternative that will not only restore your mouth’s functionality, but also restore your smile’s appearance. A dental bridge is made up of many dental crowns that are glued together to act as a replacement for missing teeth. A missing tooth can cause your surrounding teeth to move out of position, making them more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease. If not treated immediately, it can lead to permanent loss of the tooth, including the person suffering from chewing and speaking difficulties. Bridges are fixed, or non-removable prosthesis constructed to replace one or more missing teeth. The teeth on both sides of the existing space are used to attach the bridge to restore functionality and aesthetics. Materials used for this process are noble alloys, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. 

Bridges are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. A bridge is composed of abutments and pontics. Abutments are the supports for the bridge and consist of crowns placed on the teeth surrounding the empty space. The pontics are special crowns that span across the empty space and connect to the abutments. When teeth are prepared for a bridge, the abutments are prepared for crowns just as described in crowns. We will then take an impression of the prepared teeth, make a temporary bridge or crowns to place on the teeth to protect them and maintain their positions, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the bridge. At your next visit, we will try-in the bridge to ensure a good fit and then cement the bridge in place. There are three different types of dental bridges:

Pros of dental bridges:

Your natural teeth are kept in place because of the enamel’s hardness and the strength of the root structure. When a tooth gets extracted or is missing, the surrounding teeth shift to the gap left, and it could change the structure of your mouth. With the help of a dental bridge, this can be prevented to avoid any potential shifting.

A missing tooth significantly lowers your confidence and makes you awkward around social situations. With dental bridges, you will smile with confidence and be able to show off that million-dollar smile. Additionally, they also maintain your facial structure.
