Durable Dental Bridges in Courtenay - Comox Valley 

Did you damage your tooth? You don’t have to worry about your unattractive tooth and other dental flaws anymore! At Riverway Dental in Courtenay, we offer bridges and crowns for restoring your damaged tooth from future problems. These are fixed prosthetic devices that are fixed onto existing teeth or implants by our experienced dentists. We use Crowns to cover or cap a damaged tooth, whereas bridges fill in the gap of a missing tooth or teeth. 
 
We have years of experience in providing dental crowns and bridges to our clients.  

 

Crowns 

People often think of crowns and bridges to be synonymous with each other. While they're both prosthetic devices, their functions make them different from each other. Crowns or caps are coverings made of different materials that encase a natural tooth. Typically, we use our dental crowns  to 'cap' a damaged tooth. This tooth might be weak, cracked, or discoloured.  
 
Apart from protecting natural teeth, we also use crowns for cosmetic purposes. Since they closely replicate your natural teeth and restore their shape and size, they can enhance your smile. In many cases, we also place crowns over dental implants for added support. Our dental crowns in Comox Valley are sturdy and last for years.  

When Do We Use Dental Crowns? 

Dental crowns are highly versatile, and we use them for: 
To provide support when decay has weakened a tooth 

  • To hold a tooth together when it has cracks 
  • To restore a broken tooth 
  • To support the position of a dental bridge 
  • To veil misshapen or discoloured teeth 
  • To veil dental implants 
  • To cover large fillings

Bridges 

When you're missing one or several teeth, the gaps left behind can cause your existing teeth to move. This movement can cause pain, discomfort, a bad bite, jaw pain and dental diseases. Dental bridges cover this gap and keep your healthy teeth in place. They involve placing two crowns on either side of the missing tooth or teeth that support the pontic (artificial tooth).  
 
Our dental bridges will significantly reduce your discomfort. We provide several types of bridges as per your unique requirements. Pleasemake an appointment to learn more about how our dental bridges will benefit you.  

When Do We Use Dental Bridges? 

Like dental crowns, bridges are an ideal solution for many different dental issues. We might recommend bridges to: 

  • Fill the gap left by missing teeth 
  • Prevent changes in facial shape 
  • Prevent discomfort in chewing and speaking 
  • Replacing partial dentures with a more permanent solution

The Difference 

Dental crowns and bridges are similar in the sense that once we place them in your mouth, you require professional removal. They're both permanent solutions for a variety of issues. However, while we sometimes use crowns over existing teeth, we use bridges only for missing teeth. In many cases, we might have to use bridges and crowns together for optimal results and comfort.  

Procedure

The entire procedure to cement a dental crown or bridge takes two or three appointments at our clinic. It usually involves reshaping the damaged tooth, placing a temporary crown or bridge, and inserting the permanent fixtures with slight adjustments. Our dentists recommend regular brushing and flossing to increase the lifespan of the bridge and crown.

Friendly and Professional

“Every time I've been to the office, I've been met with friendly and professional staff. I had IV sedation with Dr. Luksay and everything went smoothly. Dr. Luksay followed up with me the next day to make sure everything was okay. I then came back for a bite adjustment at no charge. Thank you for your great work and professionalism.”

Very Diligent Team

“Dr. Luksay and his staff get high marks from me for being diligent regarding patient well-being. During a routine examination, he and his assistant noticed a growth under my tongue. I had noticed it before for some time but did not give it much attention. He said it looked like it could be an obstructed salivary gland and I should get it checked out. I immediately booked an appointment with my family doctor and was eventually referred to a specialist who ordered a biopsy. There was some concern expressed (it could be a tumor) and I experienced several weeks of anxiety awaiting the results, which took longer than expected. But in the end the growth was removed and I was given a clean bill of health. Thank you Dr. Luksay and staff for taking such good care of me.”
