Dental Crowns / Bridges / Implants

Dental Crowns

When one tooth is broken, severely damaged or decayed, a dental crown is applied to strengthen or replace the tooth and improve the appearance of your smile.

The name of the procedure describes a hollow “crown” that fits over your tooth, in the same way that a crown fits over your head.

The cosmetic dental procedure begins with the dentist removing the decayed or damaged areas of the tooth. The artificial dental crown is built around the remaining natural tooth in a shade and shape that matches and improves the appearance of the area.

WestcoastSmile uses only the highest quality, state of the art glass ceramics. You never have to worry that your new smile will grow gray at the gum line, like crown materials used in the past.


If one or more teeth are missing, then Kitsilano Dentist, Dr. Norden will build a bridge of natural looking teeth to fill the gap.

The procedure includes building dental crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap where the tooth or teeth are missing. The crowns on the natural teeth create a strong, custom fitted bridge and cannot be distinguished from real teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are an alternative to bridges when replacing missing teeth. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is generally used when one tooth is missing. At WestcoastSmile, Vancouver dentist Dr. Norden the most common dental implant procedure is to surgically implant a metal anchor to the jawbone, using metal posts, which mimic a natural tooth’s root structure. A natural looking replacement tooth is held by the anchor. Dental implants are a permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth. Get more information on Dental Implants
