Crowns and Bridges

A dental treatment called a crown or cap covers the visible tooth surface to strengthen or beautify the tooth. A dental treatment called a bridge is used to replace one or more lost teeth. It consists of a false tooth or teeth attached to crowns on either side to provide as support.


How do Crowns Work?

A damaged tooth is completely covered, or "capped," with a crown. A crown can be used to strengthen a tooth that is already weak and to enhance its appearance, shape, or alignment. To give an implant a tooth-like shape and structure for function, a crown can also be attached to the top of the device. The color of your natural teeth can be matched with porcelain or ceramic crowns. Gold, metal alloys, acrylic, and ceramic are examples of additional materials. These alloys, which are often more durable than porcelain, may be suggested for rear teeth. Due of its strength and beauty, porcelain that has been bonded to a metal shell is frequently employed.


How do Bridges Work?

If you have one or more missing teeth, a bridge may be suggested. The remaining teeth progressively rotate or shift into the empty areas left by missing teeth, resulting in a poor bite. Gum disease and problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) might result from the imbalance brought on by missing teeth. In order to replace one or more lost teeth, bridges are frequently employed. They cover the gap where the teeth were previously located. Bridges are fixed to the surrounding healthy teeth or dental implants. These teeth, referred to as abutments, act as the bridge's anchors. The crowns that cover the abutments are connected to a replacement tooth, known as a pontic. You can choose the material for bridges, just like you do with crowns. Based on the position of the missing tooth , their function, aesthetic value, and cost, your dentist can help you pick which to use. Bridges made of porcelain or ceramic can be stained to match your natural teeth.

How Long do Crowns and Bridges Last?

Even though they might last a lifetime, crowns and bridges can sometimes get loose or fall out. Maintaining good oral hygiene is the most crucial measure you can take to maintain the durability of your crown or bridge. If the teeth or bone keeping a bridge in place are harmed by dental disease, the bridge may no longer be supported. Brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing once a day will keep your gums and teeth healthy. Additionally, schedule routine visits with your dentist and hygienist for examinations and expert cleanings.
Avoid chewing on hard foods, ice, or other hard objects to protect your new crown or bridge.

  • Replace large or worn out fillings and hold cracked or damaged teeth together.
  • Restore cracked or fractured teeth.
  • Restorative dental implants
  • Enhance the appearance of your teeth
  • Reshape your teeth.
  • After a root canal, protect your teeth.

It restores proper tooth function, such as chewing and speaking. It keeps your remaining teeth from shifting and causing problems with your bite. It lowers the risk of bone loss, preserving the structures of your face. The bridges are permanently attached, so they do not move like dentures.
