Crowns & Bridges

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are dental prosthetic devices used to restore the function and appearance of damaged or missing teeth. They are fixed dental restorations, meaning they are cemented onto existing teeth or dental implants and cannot be removed by the patient. Both crowns and bridges are commonly made from durable materials like porcelain, metal alloys, or a combination of both.

Advantages of Crowns & Bridges

More About Crowns

A crown, also known as a dental cap, is used to cover and protect a severely decayed, damaged, or discolored tooth. It is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth structure above the gum line, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A crown not only improves the tooth’s aesthetics but also enhances its functionality by providing support and protection.

More About Bridges

A bridge, on the other hand, is used to replace one or more missing teeth by spanning the gap between the adjacent teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth called pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns attached to the neighboring teeth on either side of the gap. The natural teeth or dental implants that support the bridge are called abutments. Like crowns, bridges can be made from various materials and are customized to match the appearance of the natural teeth.
