Dental Crowns

Crowns, also known as dental caps, are protective covers that fit over damaged or weakened teeth. They are custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Here’s what you need to know:
Purpose
Crowns are used to strengthen and restore teeth that have extensive decay, fractures, large fillings, or after a root canal treatment. They provide protection, durability, and aesthetic enhancement.
Procedure
Your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decayed or damaged parts. Then, they’ll take an impression of your tooth to create a custom crown. While the permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown will be placed. On your next visit, the temporary crown is replaced with the permanent one. The day after, your dentist will schedule a follow up to make sure you feel comfort with your new crowns.
Benefits
Crowns improve the appearance, shape, and function of the tooth. They provide support, restore chewing ability, and prevent further damage. With proper care, crowns can last for many years.

Bridge

Bridge is a dental restoration used to replace missing teeth. It span the gap left by one or more missing teeth, anchoring to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Here’s what you need to know:
Purpose

Bridges are used when one or more teeth are missing, helping to restore your smile, improve chewing ability, and maintain the alignment of your remaining teeth.

Procedure
The teeth on either side of the gap (abutment teeth) are prepared, similar to crowns, to support the bridge. Impressions are taken to create a custom bridge. A temporary bridge may be provided until the permanent one is ready. On your next visit, the permanent bridge is fitted and adjusted. A follow up also will be scheduled the day after the fitting.
Benefits

Dental bridges offer numerous benefits for individuals with missing teeth. Firstly, they restore the aesthetic appearance of the smile by filling in the gaps left by missing teeth, seamlessly blending with surrounding natural teeth to enhance facial aesthetics and boost self-confidence. Additionally, dental bridges improve chewing and speech abilities, enabling individuals to eat a varied diet comfortably and communicate clearly. By preventing neighboring teeth from shifting into the empty space, bridges maintain proper dental alignment and bite function, preserving oral health. Moreover, they help stimulate the underlying jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving the jaw’s structural integrity. Dental bridges distribute bite forces evenly, reducing strain on remaining natural teeth and promoting long-term dental health. Offering stability and comfort, bridges are a fixed solution that does not require removal for cleaning, providing convenience for daily oral hygiene routines. With proper care, dental bridges can last for many years, offering a durable and reliable method for replacing missing teeth and improving overall quality of life.

Remember, both crowns and bridges are customized dental solutions that require good oral hygiene and regular dental visits for long-term success.

If you have damaged or missing teeth, consult with our dentist to see if crowns or bridges are suitable options for you. They’ll guide you through the process and help you achieve a healthy, complete smile.
