What are Crowns?
Crowns are caps placed over teeth that have been treated for decay or damage, restoring the overall structure of a single tooth. It is important to replace the tooth in order to preserve the integrity of the entire dental system and prevent teeth from shifting.
These restorations can be made from a variety of different materials, including porcelain, metal (generally gold or silver) and porcelain-fused to metal. There are also differing grades of porcelain on the market that provide differing levels of color-matching, translucency, and durability.
Crowns are used with bridges and dental implants to provide a comprehensive solution for missing teeth.
What are Bridges?
Bridges are porcelain prosthetics that permanently replace up to a short row of teeth using adjacent crowns anchored to existing healthy teeth used as stabilizers. This procedure involves slightly altering adjacent healthy teeth to allow them to receive the porcelain restoration. They restore dental functions while preventing teeth from shifting in misalignment.
Bridges can also be used with other restorations, such as dental implants, to provide greater stability. Furthermore, dental implants avoid altering adjacent teeth, allowing individuals to preserve as much natural dentition as possible.
Benefits of Receiving Restorations
In addition to the esthetic benefits that can be obvious, crowns and bridges provide support to existing teeth that encourages proper care and a balanced smile. Patients benefit from even pressure on their dental system, even wear on teeth, restored functionality, and improved dental performance.
