Repair Damage With Dental Crowns & Bridges in Winnipeg, MBDental Crowns at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
My background—I’m English. So the dentist ... I came from England ... the dentists in my family were just taboo. You didn't have to enjoy going there. In fact, I had to be terrified. So it was a strange thing for me, well, my family because when I actually found out about Dr. Rose, it was through Davin, because she took dental assistant school with my daughter. So Davin told me about Dr. Rose and the practice and everything, and it was just ... I'm glad I came, that’s for sure. My actual original crown fell out so Dr. Rose had to do another root canal, put some posts in. She'll bring the actual x-ray and she'll show you and talk to you about exactly what she's going to be doing so there's no doubt in your mind when you sit in that chair, you know you're going to be looked after. She doesn't rush through anything and she always makes sure that you understand before you're leaving the chair, what kind of procedures are going to be done. She’s just wonderful.

You Can Get Your Dental Restoration in a Single DayDoctor Justin Diamond on dental crowns and bridges Read Transcript
Dental crown and bridges work … serves multiple functions. First function is it helps to restore missing teeth in the smile. Whether it's front teeth and the patient has an aesthetic concern or whether it's a posterior tooth where they've got some chewing, function concerns, bridge work can help to restore those missing teeth and restore function as well as aesthetics as well. Crown work, single-unit crown or multiple-unit multiple crowns, can help protect teeth with large fillings or with root canal treatment done on them. So I always give the pitch to the patient where if they've got a large filling and they've invested time or money into the filling, or time and money into the root canal treatment, and I say, ‘We need to put a crown on that tooth to help preserve that tooth so that it doesn't break in the future.’
The analogy I use is just, say you've just renovated your house, and you put hardwood floors in your house, but your roof is leaking. You’re not going to ignore your roof and just ruin ... get a big heavy rainstorm and ruin your hardwood floors. You're going to want to replace that roof as well to protect your investment. And that's what we're doing with crown is for function, is we're protecting our investment and previous dental work that's been done, the basic restorative work that's been done.
We use a technology called CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) that enables us to produce crowns for you right in our office. It’s so convenient – and much faster – not waiting for an outside facility to create it, and no temporary crowns are needed.
And with CEREC, the impressions we take of your teeth are digital, so you won’t need to get a mouthful of messy molding material.
Advantages of Crowns Include Durability
A crown completely covers your natural tooth after our dentists securely cement it into place. At Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB, we can repair or replace a tooth with a crown made of zirconia or e.max ceramic. These are both incredibly strong options that mimic the look of natural teeth.
Advantages of dental crowns include:
- Restoring your damaged tooth’s appearance
- Returning your tooth to its natural shape
- Strengthening a weakened tooth and protecting it from damage
- Lasting a long time with proper home care and regular checkups
- Replacing a tooth as part of a dental bridge, or completing a dental implant
Dental Bridges Offer Advantages Too
At Lakewood Dental Centre, we can also fit you with a fixed bridge that is not removable. A dental bridge is one option to replace one or more missing teeth. Your natural teeth will hold your dental bridge in place. In turn, your dental bridge will hold your replacement teeth in place.
Among the advantages of dental bridges:
- They distribute chewing force to your natural teeth.
- Because of their small size and light weight, many people find bridges more comfortable than dentures.
- You can receive a dental bridge in two visits, while dentures usually require at least four appointments.
If your teeth are not healthy enough to support a dental bridge, we might recommend replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, depending on the health of your jawbone. Bridges can be attached to implants for improved stability.
