What Are Dental Crowns?
Both dental crowns and bridges are considered prosthetic devices, and work by protecting your teeth from further damage or discomfort. These oral appliances can help in restoring the shape, appearance, and functionality of your teeth. They are permanently attached to your tooth and using the proper material, can be undetectable to the naked eye.
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that encases a damaged or decayed tooth to prevent further decay and protect it from harmful bacteria.
Advantages of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are beneficial in restoring teeth with:
- Cracks or fractures
- Large fillings
- Excessive wear
- Broken cusps
- Root canals
- Dental implants
What Are Dental Bridges?
Crowns are useful in repairing damaged teeth, however, if you are suffering from missing teeth, we may recommend a bridge. Dental bridges are used when a person has one or more missing teeth that they would like to replace. A dental bridge consists of two crowns with one or more replacement teeth in the middle. These devices are the perfect solution for filling missing teeth or to restore your chewing and biting force.
Advantages of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are beneficial in the following oral issues:
- Missing teeth
- Misaligned facial shape
