Dental bridges and crowns are types of dental restoration; they are used to restore function to the mouth and they can also enhance the aesthetic of the smile. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and crowns are used to strengthen teeth that have been weakened as a result an injury, accident or decay.
Crowns are also known as caps because they fit over the top of the tooth. A crown can be made from precious or non-precious metal, porcelain or another form of ceramic material. Porcelain crowns are very popular because they match the colour of the natural teeth and they have an attractive glossy sheen.
You may be advised to have a crown if your tooth is weak as a result of decay, having a large filling or injury; a crown helps to strengthen the tooth and prevent further damage. You may also have a new crown if you have had root canal treatment or you have dental implants.
Fitting a crown usually takes two sessions, as the tooth must be prepared before the crown can be fitted; this involves removing damaged and decayed tissue and cleaning and shaping the tooth. The new crown is made according to an impression of the tooth, so that it fits perfectly.
A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth; there are different types of dental bridge but the most commonly used type is the traditional fixed bridge. The fixed bridge is made from a pontic (a false tooth), which is fused to a crown on either side. Dental bridges, like crowns, can be made from a range of materials; porcelain and ceramic bridges are popular because they match the colour of the natural teeth.
Dental bridges and crowns are very popular treatments, which help to restore full function to the mouth and give you a healthy looking smile. If you would be interested in knowing more about crowns and bridges please contact Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hanwell for more information.
