If you are in need of either cosmetic or hygienic improvements to your oral health, crowns, and bridges are two popular options with many advantages. The most common reason a crown or a bridge might be necessary is if you are missing one or more teeth - but they can also be used simply to help a weak tooth along. Whatever the situation calls for, we are happy to help - but it helps to know a little more about both of these dental procedures first.
Similar to dentures, crowns 75080 and bridges are permanent fixed structures which only your dentist can remove. A crown sits over a broken or damaged tooth, and in so doing helps to return the tooth back to its prior healthy state. It can even help to repair the shape of the tooth in time. A major concern for many patients also is appearance, and this is something that a crown handles easily and effectively. With a crown properly installed, it will not be clear to anybody that it is not just a normal tooth. Crowns 75080 can be made either of porcelain or ceramic if you are especially concerned about its appearance.
Crowns are a useful solution for a number of occasions, including:
Crowns are not always the best solution, however, and it is wise to know your options as fully as possible before coming in to visit us. Another common solution to similar dental concerns is the bridge. A bridge is almost always used to cover the gap where you have missing teeth. In essence, a bridge consists of one or more crowns which are placed over the real remaining teeth, and a centre row of false teeth for the sake of appearances. The crowns held over the real teeth help to retain the line of teeth so that your smile remains as you would like it, and you do not get a misaligned mouth.
The false teeth can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of those. A bridge is supported by the natural teeth you have remaining, meaning that ongoing care is more important than ever. Some benefits of the bridge include:
As you can see, both crowns and bridges are useful dental procedures for when you want to keep your smile looking its best, as well as to ensure the ongoing health of your remaining teeth and gums.
