See Our Maple Practice for Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
As you grow older, your smile naturally ages with you. The most noticeable problems occur with your teeth when you have decay, amalgam fillings, missing teeth and teeth that may have broken over the years. Darker lines can also appear around crowns or caps, which will have a negative impact on your overall appearance.
Having crowns and bridges installed – a process also known as fixed bridgework – means that you will have non-removable replacement teeth installed. No surgical treatment will be required for this process, and some patients prefer this option to that of having dental implants inserted. Having fixed bridgework performed is also a lot more affordable than the option of implants. There are also patients who cannot have implants inserted because their oral health has deteriorated too far to support the devices, and for them, we usually recommend having bridgework done instead.
It isn’t always possible to repair your teeth by having fillings done. Sometimes, porcelain crowns are able to do a far better job because they enclose the whole tooth and restore it to its original size and shape. Crowns also have the ability to protect your teeth from becoming damaged any further.
A single appointment with our team here at Maple Ridge Dentistry is all it takes for you to get a porcelain crown. Your Maple dentist will remove any decay present on your original tooth and custom design your crown to ensure that it is a proper fit. Once this has been done, the crown will be cemented in place and checked again to ensure it fits well. Having regular check-ups performed at our practice and practicing good oral hygiene habits will ensure that your crowns last as long as possible. Thanks to our centralised location, you’ll find it easy to come in for check-ups even if you live in nearby areas like Richmond Hill, Vaugh, or Woodbridge.
Porcelain crowns will not only protect and strengthen the existing tooth structure; they will also ensure that your bite is kept correctly aligned. Older crowns can leak after a few years if not correctly cared for, which can cause cavities to form underneath them.
Porcelain bridges can provide a great alternative to replace missing or broken teeth, and they can sometimes replace any partial dentures that you may have as well – doing away with the hassle of removing an appliance each night. These devices are manufactured to match the shape, size and color of your original teeth, and they will help restore your smile to its former glory.
Porcelain bridges are customized devices that are bonded to surrounding teeth in order to replace one or more broken or missing teeth. When missing teeth are replaced with bridges, the teeth on each side of the missing one are prepared to be used as crowns so that they can hold the bridge in place. Porcelain is the most popular choice for these devices because of its level of durability and the fact that it looks as natural as original teeth.
Bridge procedures normally require two appointments. During the first, initial preparation is done and impressions of the teeth are taken. The second appointment involves having the bridges placed permanently. Porcelain bridges will protect your teeth from issues arising as a result of having missing teeth. Regular dental visits and proper in-home dental routines will help keep bridges looking good for as long as possible.
Amazing background music for a cleaning. Super soothing and relaxing experience in something I usually find unpleasant. The staff is also friendly, kind and caring. Especially Stephanie, who is an absolute gem and lovely to talk to. Highly recommend.
I was very satisfied with my experience at Mapleridge Dental. The staff were friendly, thorough in the care they provided, and attentive to all my needs. First-class service!
Recently changed dentistries to be closer to home and found Mapleridge. This has honestly been the best decision I have made for my dental care. The doctors and staff are absolutely amazing: very welcoming, friendly and helpful! They have also made every visit very comforting, which was possibly the biggest concern of mine when looking for a new dental office. Any questions, concerns or fears you may have, Mapleridge will help you every step of the way!
Great experience! Everyone at the clinic was very kind, welcoming, and competent. This was my first visit and I felt very comfortable with all aspects of my appointment; from the booking process, cleaning, and dental exam. I believe communication and honest professional advice are important when choosing a dentist, I feel I got this here... thank you to the entire team.
Mapleridge Dentistry - what a nice surprise! Everyone so friendly, attentive. Modern facility. Dr. Ko took me on an emergency basis and explained my options, after listening patiently to all my concerns.Thank you for making my first experience a welcoming one and I look forward to my next appointment.
Mapleridge has the best team out there- their staff is kind and helpful, and treats you like family. You are actually happy to go to your dentist instead of being scared. Stephanie is such a wonderful dental hygienist and such a lovely person. And Dr. Ko is just incredible- my whole family sees them and we couldn't be happier!
Fantastic experience! I have been to several dentists in the past and I always felt like it was an in and out experience, or they would not explain anything. At Maple Ridge they are extremely professional, knowledgeable and explain everything in a lot of detail. I like that I’m able to be aware of what is going on with my teeth. I love the hygienist, dentist and the reception is super friendly. I highly recommend!
My experience at Mapleridge was nothing short of spectacular. They are professional, kind and informative and they explain everything they’re going to do and their reasons for their procedures. I definitely made the right choice in choosing them!
Great staff. The team at the front was courteous, friendly and extremely helpful. I had Dr. Ko as my dentist. Its the 2nd time I've seen him and he was great - he explained everything, walked me through some options, and explained next steps. I'll definitely continue going to Mapleridge dentistry and I'd recommend them to others in Vaughan.
Very clean, friendly clinic. I was very impressed by the dental hygienist Shirine, who took time to explain everything and provide practical suggestions. Dr. Yara was also very professional and gentle. Thorough exam and happy patient! Will be back!
