Dental Crowns And Tooth Bridges

Dental Crown and Bridge are two common types of restorative dentistry used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth.

A dental crown, also known as a “cap,” is a custom-made covering that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to protect it and restore its shape and function. Crowns are typically made of porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.

A tooth bridge, on the other hand, is a dental prosthetic that is used to fill a gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge typically consists of two crowns that are placed over the teeth on either side of the gap, and one or more false teeth (pontics) that are suspended between them. The pontics are typically made of porcelain.

Both crowns and bridges are typically cemented in place and can only be removed by a dentist. They can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.

 

Dental Crown and Bridge

Dental Crown

Dental Crown

A crown is needed to restore a tooth which has a large filling, a crack, a fracture, or has undergone root canal therapy. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of a tooth that is discolored or misshapen. A crown can strengthen a tooth that has been weakened by decay or injury and can also be used to anchor a dental bridge in place.

The process of getting a crown typically involves two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage, and shaping the tooth to fit the crown. Then, an impression of the prepared tooth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory for the crown to be fabricated. A temporary crown may be placed over the prepared tooth until the permanent crown is ready. On the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent crown in place.

It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene and have regular dental checkups to ensure the longevity of dental crowns.

Dental Bridge

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is needed to restore a tooth that has been lost or extracted. A bridge can replace one or more missing teeth and can be anchored in place by natural teeth on either side of the gap, or by dental implants. A bridge can help to restore the patient’s ability to chew and speak properly, as well as prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

The process of getting a bridge typically involves two or more visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap by removing any decay or damage and shaping them to fit the crowns. Then, an impression of the prepared teeth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory for the bridge to be fabricated. A temporary bridge may be placed over the prepared teeth until the permanent bridge is ready. On the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary bridge and cement the permanent bridge in place.

It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene and have regular dental checkups to ensure the longevity of dental bridges. Regular cleaning and flossing under the bridge, as well as regular dental check-ups, are important to maintain the longevity of the bridge and the health of the surrounding teeth.
