Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are two cosmetic dentistry options that can help to restore not only the look of teeth but also its function.
Bridges help to fill the gap left by missing teeth, while crowns are used to restore malformed, discolored, cracked or misshapen teeth.
A dental crown (often referred to as a cap) is used to restore the look and function of a tooth that has been weakened as a result of dental decay, old restorations or cracks. Dental crowns can be made from porcelain or a gold alloy, or a combination of the two, and are made to mimic the tooth’s shape, size and color.
A bridge is one of the options to replace one or more missing teeth. It is a permanent fixture which is anchored to the adjacent natural tooth or teeth (the abutment) to ‘bridge’ the gap where the tooth (or teeth) is missing. This also prevents the adjacent natural teeth from drifting. Impressions are then created and from this a model of each component of the bridge is made, where this specialized process can take some time, with a temporary bridge fitted in the meantime to protect teeth and gums. When the permanent bridge is ready, the temporary model is removed, with the new one fitted.
