Dental crowns and bridges offer full-scale restoration for teeth that suffer from damage or decay. The exact results of a clean and proper restoration require hands-on experience and an artistic element for a fuller smile. Crowns and bridges work well to restore teeth aesthetics allowing them to regain full strength and function.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are designed to fully cover the shape of your teeth above the gum line offering maximum safety and comfort. Crowns are recommended when the damage has covered a full length of the tooth restoring to its proper function and giving patients the freedom to smile better.
Crowns are generally crafted by using porcelain material. Other materials include porcelain-fused-to-gold, all-porcelain, zirconia, or even ceramics.
Your restoration is designed by taking impressions of teeth. These impressions will represent model structures to prepare and plan your customized crowns.
The patient would have to wear temporary crowns until their original and custom-made crowns are ready. The process is easy, and we'd ensure that the patient experiences maximum comfort during any procedure with us.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges work the same way as crowns do. If you are experiencing missing teeth with two healthy tooth structures on either side of the gap, dental bridges may do the trick to cover up that space.
A dental bridge can be designed with three crowns. The crowns at the ends would act as abutments which will slide over the healthy set of teeth, and crown structure in the middle would get inserted in place of the missing teeth. The design of your dental bridge can be planned based on the number of teeth that are missing.
The dentist would advise patients with aftercare tips to take care of both the restoration and the remaining natural teeth. Having restorations on would mean that patients must attend regular cleaning sessions to make sure they remain healthy and germ-free.
