Crowns & Bridges
What is a Dental Crown?
Crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Crowns provide a protective tooth-shaped cover for both natural teeth that have been badly damaged and dental implants.
When to use Dental Crown?
Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or severely damaged by decay. As a result, a filling cannot replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth. Crowns can be used to improve appearance of misshaped teeth as well.
Key information regarding Dental Crowns
When there is not a lot of tooth tissue left, dental crown will provide the best long-term protection to your tooth.
Temporary crowns can sometimes be cemented onto the tooth while the permanent one is being made in a dental lab
While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step to ensure the longevity of the crown is to practice good oral hygiene.
What is Dental Bridge?
Dental bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis supported on each side by natural teeth or implants. It is used to replace one or more missing teeth.
When to use Dental Bridge?
When a dental implant cannot be performed for several reasons, dental bridge can be the second-best solution to replace a missing tooth.
