Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns and dental bridges are some of the core services we offer at the Northern Dental Centre for individual teeth or in some cases, full mouth repair.

Our team of professional dentists will guide you through the process of getting crowns and dental bridges. But let’s take a look at these two procedures we provide at the Northern Dental Centre.

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is an artificial cover that fits over the top of your tooth; hence the name. A dental crown will be molded into the shape of your tooth and cemented in place using a special type of dental cement.

In most cases we offer same day crowns through our Cerec Crown System. With the help of a computer, our dentists designs a digital 3D image of your tooth and crown with precise measurements. The design is edited for all the precisions such as indentations, ridges, pits, and fissures. Once the final design is ready, a milling machine carves a replica of the design to make a crown out of a single ceramic block.

Occasionally, we do have to send the crown out to a lab and we will require a 2nd visit to our offices to cement the crown for you.

So if you have a broken or worn down tooth, a crown could be the perfect option for you. Crowns are a long term solution which provide a strong protection over your natural tooth.

What are Dental Bridges?

If your tooth is badly decayed, we might suggest removing the infected tooth and providing you with a bridge. A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. For a bridge to be a suitable restoration, there needs to be sound teeth on either side of the space(s). Crowns are placed over your natural teeth with a solid unit in the center to replace the space. The bridge is one piece that is inserted all at once.

FAQ's for Crowns and Dental Bridges

Will crowns and dental bridges change my look?

In most cases, no. They’re designed to be aesthetically pleasing on the eye. They are designed to improve the look of your smile and make you more confident.

Should I opt for crowns or bridges?

They’re two different things. Crowns are to protect existing teeth, whereas bridges are to replace missing teeth and provide stability in the dentition.

Are Crowns or Bridges My Only Option?

No, other options are available such as partial dentures or implants. It is best to book an examination with one of our doctors to review all options and make the best decisions.

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!


  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Your Dental Team
