What are dental crowns?
Crowns are dental restorations made of porcelain or ceramic material that can help restore lost enamel restoring teeth function and aesthetics. Ceramic or porcelain crowns are the popular choices of restoration as they easily blend in with the color of natural teeth.
What is the process involved in getting dental crowns?
Damaged, cracked, broken or misshapen teeth may be restored by using cap-like restorations in the form of crowns. Dental crowns may be supported by implants or can be used to cover and shield weak tooth structures restored after a dental filling or root canal. The crown would be mold, filed, polished and cemented into place by using dental adhesives.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges are a perfect means to restore lost or missing teeth. They are often made of porcelain or ceramic, and some would even be fused to metal to achieve durability and aesthetics.
How do bridges function?
The missing tooth area, also known as the pontic, would be held in between by adjacent crowns that would rest on top of natural healthy-looking teeth. Pontics are generally made out of naturally-looking ceramic material to make it appear aesthetically pleasing and enamel-like. Bridges may also be supported by dental implants offering more stability and durability.
When are crowns and bridges generally recommended?
Dr. Most would generally recommend his patients with crowns and bridges in the following scenarios:
- Teeth suffering from fracture or damage
- Decay resulting in weak roots
- Tooth affected by gum disease
