Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are a perfect example of why dentistry is considered on the lines of art and science. A dental crown is a covering that fits over a damaged or decayed tooth. Dental bridgework can replace a tooth entirely. If a tooth misses a significant portion of the structure above the gum line, a crown would be the ideal restoration choice. Crowns help in strengthening damaged teeth and allows for it to function normally again.
When a tooth cannot be repaired by a filling or the repair by a filling would be too large to maintain its strength, then a dental crown, also known as “caps” is your best option. With a dental crown, the visible portion of your tooth is reduced in size and shaped to allow space for a crown to cover the tooth to give the tooth strength and an aesthetic look. Today, most crowns are made of tooth-colored cosmetic material.
A dental bridge is a dental treatment that allows you to replace some missing teeth by supporting a “false” tooth between two existing healthy teeth. The two teeth on either side of the gap are prepared for the bridge by slightly reducing their size. After, an impression is taken of your mouth, it is used to create a beautiful new bridge that will fill the gap in your smile.
The benefits of dental crowns and bridges are numerous. Crowns and bridges add strength and toughness back into damaged teeth. By doing this, the dentist helps restore your smile back to its original form. Tooth loss, if left untreated, can change the facial shape. Crowns and bridges can maintain your facial shape. Crowns and bridges can also improve the overall look of your smile and build self-confidence in your appearance. These options also help ensure that other natural teeth don’t shift their position.
