Porcelain Crowns and Bridges Treatment

Diagnostic & Preventive Dentistry
At Milltown Dental we offer porcelain crowns and bridges as an excellent restorative treatment when the integrity of your tooth is jeopardized or in the case of missing teeth. Crowns offer a stable, natural-looking option that maintains your root for added stability while bridges offer a permanent option for missing teeth.


A crown, or “cap” is a covering that protects, covers, and strengthens your tooth. They provide a natural look while keeping your bite and teeth aligned. Crowns are used when a tooth is severely damaged, and are recommended if you have a root canal, a large filling or a broken tooth. Crowns can be made from different materials, including gold, porcelain, other metal alloys or a combination of both. We normally propose tooth-coloured crowns that can be matched to existing teeth for the most natural appearance. This is especially important for teeth that can be seen when you smile.

When would I need a crown?

During any dental treatment, the ultimate goal is to save your tooth. This is because the natural root of your tooth is stronger than any replacement or restorative treatment available. As well, when a tooth is lost and not replaced it leads to further issues including the shifting of your teeth which can affect your bite as well as the appearance of your smile. Rather than turning to extractions and implants, crowns offer an excellent option in many situations including:
  • Larger fillings that have so severely broken down that a simple filling is not an option anymore
  • Presence of new decay around big restorations
  • A cracked tooth
  • Very sensitive teeth, either from a lot of "wear", or from receded gums to seal and protect the teeth from hot and cold sensitivity
  • A tooth that has been broken
  • A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy to properly seal and protect the tooth
  • Misaligned teeth to make them look straighter and improve your occlusion (bite)

How is a crown inserted?

  1. An impression is made of your tooth in order to create a temporary crown to place over your tooth while you wait for your final crown to be made.
  2. Your tooth is prepped by filing it down to accommodate the final crown.
  3. An impression is taken of your filed tooth and is sent to the dental lab where the crown is crafted.
  4. When your crown is ready, we will remove the temporary crown and make sure your final crown is the right fit, shape, colour and bite before it is cemented into place.

Post and Core

A post and core allows us to rebuild a tooth offering strength and stability to crowns when there is a potential problem with the remaining tooth. The post and core support the crown when the tooth cannot. The natural tooth’s root is preserved as with a crown, but the post provides additional support when the tooth itself is not strong enough. The post is inserted into the remaining tooth providing a stable anchor that works in combination with your natural root and tooth.

Fixed Bridges

A bridge is used when your natural tooth cannot be saved or is missing. It attaches restorative teeth to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. This bridge acts as your new teeth, closing the gap and restoring your smile. As mentioned, filling in gaps left by missing teeth is important to ensure proper mouth functions, as it can significantly reduce tooth shifting, over-erupting, and pain caused by an uncomfortable bite. A bridge is one of the few options you have when deciding on how to deal with a missing tooth or teeth. It is made of a durable, natural-looking material that is resistant to stains, chips, and decay. Because it is cemented to your teeth permanently, most patients find this an excellent option over removable dentures. This is also a far more affordable option than implants.

Dr. Julie is the most confident, knowledgeable and passionate dentist I have ever met! My daughter was diagnosed with a mild tongue tie the day she was born and at a few weeks old, I started searching endlessly on where to have her release done. As a worried mom, I wanted the best of the best treatment and thankfully, I was recommended to Dr.Julie. Let me tell you…Dr.Julie IS the definition of BEST of the BEST!! The moment I met her in person, I knew my 5 week old was in good hands. This is the EXACT person you want doing a tongue tie procedure. All the staff are incredibly kind, professional and genuine. The clinic is very clean and organized. For each appointment, I was greeted immediately and was brought in right away. You will initially watch a detailed informative video and then will meet with the dentist outlining the procedure. She did not pressure us what so ever. The actual laser treatment happens quick, yes your baby will cry (it’s normal) and finally you will be taught the daunting yet IMPORTANT stretches. Make sure to NOT skip them. Thank you Dr. Boudreault for showing me how to do them a million times and not once were you bothered. God bless you all. Best Regards, Baby Rose’s mom

Took my 2 month old for a lip and tongue tie. Dr. Julie was extremely knowledgeable, things I didn’t even know was part of a tie. I was so anxious going into the appointment that after watching the video and talking to Dr. Julie, I knew I had made the right decision in coming to this office. I also didn’t feel pressured at all, which also made me feel better about the decision. Everyone was very friendly and the office is very clean. Thank you Milltown Dental!! I Will definitely recommend to friends and family!!

If I could give more than 5 starts I would. Not only is Dr. Julie incredibly skilled but she is the kindest most ethical and empathetic dentist I have come across. She has a top-notch informative consultation process for those looking to explore tongue/lip ties for their babies. The office itself is a clean comfortable environment, staff are efficient and very friendly.

Really fantastic experience here. Staff and dental professionals seem to genuinely care. It didn’t feel like they were just trying to sell me treatments. The hygienist I had was very professional and kind. The dentist was very personable and took the time to explain things to me. Would strongly recommend this office to anyone looking for a great dentist experience. UPDATE: I got invisilines here and the experience has been awesome. They explain everything in plain language and make it easy to understand the process. I was so impressed with how pleasant they made the treatment. Again, really great dentist practice. Strongly recommend.
