Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges are used to restore or repair damaged or missing teeth.

A crown, also referred to as a cap, is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth, replacing its outer layer of enamel with a new material. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth, when functioning teeth are available on both sides of the missing tooth.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

DENTAL CROWN:

A crown, also referred to as a cap, is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth, replacing its outer layer of enamel with a new material. A crown is contoured and sized similarly to a natural tooth, and they come into contact with the opposite tooth in a normal way, allowing for food to be chewed properly. In general, a crown should feel like a regular tooth when it comes to function. Depending on the material chosen for the crown, it also can look like a perfectly natural tooth.

DENTAL BRIDGE:

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth, when functioning teeth are available on both sides of the missing tooth. The adjacent teeth, called retainers, are covered by the bridge in exactly the same manner as a crown covers a single tooth. The difference is that the bridge connects the crowns to a pontic (fake tooth replacement) in the missing tooth space.
