5000 Yonge Dental in North York offers crowns and bridges as treatments to correct your smile and fill the gaps in your smile.
What are dental crowns?
A dental crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface resembling the original shape and size.
A crown should protect and strengthen tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Porcelain (tooth-coloured) crowns are the most popular. They should be durable and last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.
