All About Crowns & Bridges
At Bayview Dental, we provide high-quality crowns and bridges to return your smile to its naturally healthy and beautiful form. We have your back when it comes to your smile. Our treatments and procedures repair and replace teeth that have decayed or damaged by using top-quality materials such as porcelain and zirconia in our dental restorations.
What Are Crowns and Bridges?
Dental crowns can help repair damaged, decaying or diseased teeth. Our dentists prescribe them to hide the existing structure of the injured tooth. This treatment restores your teeth's form, strength, and function, giving you a healthy smile.
A dental bridge refers to multiple crowns used to replace one or more missing teeth. Our dentists employ bridges to fill the gap left by tooth loss. Bridges are set in place and supported by two crowns on either side of the gap.

Tooth-coloured Fillings in Richmond
For cavities or other minor tooth damage, choose our high-quality tooth-coloured fillings in Richmond. Allow us to aid you in getting a beautiful, healthy smile. Is it necessary for you to get a dental restoration? For most cavities or minor damage, fillings are an excellent alternative. Fillings used to be made of amalgam, which had a dark metal look that could distract a smile’s appearance. In most cases, tooth-coloured fillings may now be used, which have a long lifespan and are fracture resistant.
What Is a Tooth-coloured Filling?
White fillings made of composite resin are known as tooth-coloured fillings. They can be used to fill cavities and repair minor damage to teeth. The material used is long-lasting and damage resistant. Brushing at least twice a day, avoiding sugary snacks, flossing every day, and seeing us at least twice a year can help keep your natural teeth and restorations healthy.
What Are the Advantages of a Tooth-coloured Filling?
A tooth-coloured filling has several advantages. They are safer than amalgam fillings since they don't emit toxic metals or chemicals. They appear entirely natural, which will boost your self-esteem. Most importantly, tooth-coloured fillings are durable and long-lasting, ensuring that you maintain a healthy smile for many years.
What Is the Cost of a Tooth-coloured Filling?
The cost of restorations will vary depending on the treatment required. We will work with you to decide the best treatments to match your needs after examining your mouth, and we will give you an accurate estimate. Most major dental insurance plans are in-network with us.
