Dental Bridges And Crowns

Dentistry


A bridge is a fixed replacement for a removed tooth or teeth. We craft Dental Bridges, by taking an impression of the neighboring teeth, which will ultimately strengthen the bridge. A bridge is usually created from precious metal and porcelain and will fix in your mouth. A crown covers a damaged tooth. Crown is used to improve the shape of the teeth and also restore the damaged tooth. Generally, these crowns cover tooth implants to retain tooth structurally and functionally. Porcelain or ceramic crowns match the color of your actual teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally strong compared to porcelain and preferred for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is used because it is strong and attractive.

Crowns are fixed to replace a large filling, protect a weak tooth from breaking, reconstructing a fractured tooth, attaching a bridge, covering a dental implant, and also covering the tooth that had root canal treatment.

A bridge is preferred if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth ultimately cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The asymmetry caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease. Bridges replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the space. 

These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Our Specialist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations, and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can match the color of your natural teeth.

The tooth is filed and properly shaped to adjust the crown or bridge, precisely.  After reducing the tooth/teeth, your dentist will take an impression to provide an exact mold for the crown or bridge. If you prefer a porcelain crown, your dentist will arrange the correct shade for the crown or bridge to match the color of your existing teeth.

Using this impression, a dental lab then makes your crown or bridge, in the material your dentist specifies. A temporary crown or bridge will be put in place to cover the fixed tooth while the permanent crown or bridge is crafted. When the permanent crown or bridge is ready, the temporary crown or bridge is removed, and the new crown or bridge is cemented over your prepared tooth or teeth.

While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown or bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by Brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. Also, see your dentist and hygienist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.
