Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations. They are cap-shaped restorations made to fit into the shape of your teeth. Crowns are cemented to your jawbones with the help of implants and can only be detached by a dentist.

How do crowns function?

Your dental crowns can protect a damaged tooth. Crowns can also improve appearance, shape, and correct alignment issues of your teeth. There are several types of dental crowns. Porcelain dental crowns are the most popular type of crowns. They are manufactured to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. 

When would you require dental crowns?

Dental crowns are typically recommended in the below scenarios.

  • Replacement of a large filling.
  • Protecting weak tooth roots from a fracture.
  • For dental bridge attachment.
  • Shield implants.
  • Cover teeth that have undergone a root canal.

What are dental bridges?

Most missing jawbone spaces either result in imbalanced bite issues or teeth rotation. Bridges can help build the gaps between teeth. Dental bridges function as restorations by replacing one or more missing teeth. 

Porcelain or ceramic bridges are high in demand as they offer great aesthetics and balance to teeth.

Why would one require bridges?

Dental bridges serve well not only as a restoration but also as an aesthetic maintainer. Bridges can:

  • Reduce the risks of gum disease
  • Restore your ability to chew and bite
  • Improve the quality of your speech
  • Prevent the chances of teeth drifting
  • Preserve a natural looking smile

Your dental crowns and bridges can last long enough if patients adhere to strict oral hygiene practices and are regular for follow up visits. It is important to keep your restorations clean by brushing and flossing twice a day.
