What is crowns and bridges

Dental crowns and bridges serve the purpose of safeguarding and concealing damaged or irregular teeth. By covering imperfections and damaged teeth, they aid in the preservation and protection of oral health, preventing further complications. Consequently, patients can sustain a natural-looking smile.

Dental crown

Dental crowns offer the opportunity to attain a resilient smile that maintains a natural appearance, regardless of any tooth damage. Typically crafted from porcelain, which closely resembles natural teeth, they possess a reflective quality that makes it nearly indistinguishable from your own teeth. Dental crowns are utilized to conceal a variety of dental concerns, including teeth that are:

• Fractured • Containing substantial fillings • Discolored • Affected by decay • Misshapen • Worn down

Functioning as prosthetics, dental crowns are designed to fit over the visible portion of your tooth, replicating the original tooth’s shape and size. In doing so, they fortify the tooth and repair any existing damage.

Dental bridge restortion

A dental bridge serves a distinct purpose from a crown as it aims to fill the gap caused by a missing tooth, rather than covering a damaged tooth. It functions by connecting two crowns to replace the missing teeth, while also concealing any damage present in multiple teeth.

Based on your specific circumstances, dental crowns or dental implants are placed on each side of the missing tooth, along with a replacement porcelain bridge, in order to replicate the appearance of an existing tooth. These porcelain teeth within the dental bridge are securely fixed and incapable of shifting or sliding, allowing them to function just like natural teeth.

These bridges possess a natural look and sensation due to their composition of porcelain, which shares the same light-reflecting properties as real teeth. They possess sufficient strength to function like genuine teeth and, unlike dentures, can be cleaned without the need for removal. Furthermore, they are more cost-effective compared to implants.
