What are Bridges and Crowns?

Dental bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist or prosthodontist. Crowns are used most commonly to cover or “cap” a damaged tooth entirely or cover an implant. Bridges are frequently used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth.

Benefits of Bridges & Crowns

In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, dental bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment, and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Bridges

Dental bridges, also known as tooth bridges are an effective means of replacing missing teeth. Unlike dental implants, which require a surgical procedure for placement and may necessitate additional procedures for preparation, Diamond Dental bridges are affixed to existing teeth, reducing both your treatment period and potential risks. What’s more, in many instances, teeth adjacent to a missing tooth have also been impacted by trauma and decay. Since a dental bridge utilizes dental crowns placed over supporting teeth, not only is the missing tooth or teeth replaced, adjacent teeth are strengthened and beautified in the process.

Crowns

Porcelain crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re–establish its original function to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice where tooth decay has destroyed most the original tooth. This usually occurs when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. Porcelain Crowns are also an option for people who grind their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised.

The benefit to porcelain crowns is they can not only replicate the original tooth in function, but can be designed to look like the original–or even better.
