Dental Crowns and Bridges Provide Realistic Tooth Restoration

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns (or caps) and dental bridges are prosthetic solutions for serious dental problems like weak, fractured, missing, or cosmetically unacceptable teeth. They are usually permanent and cannot be removed for cleaning like dentures. Before a dental crown or bridge is made, the dentist will prepare the natural tooth or teeth. Preparation involves altering the size or shape so that the dental crown or bridge will fit properly. Exact impressions of the teeth and gums are sent to a dental lab to create a mold for the prosthetic. If porcelain is the material chosen for the crown or bridge, the dentist will match the color to the patient’s other teeth for a natural look. Patients usually wear a temporary device until the permanent crown or bridge is ready for placement.

Do Dental Crowns and Bridges Last a Lifetime?
Many dental crowns and bridges last a lifetime, but they can become loose or detach from your teeth over time. To increase the longevity of your crown or bridge, practice good oral hygiene, avoid chewing hard foods, and see your dentist in Temple Terrace regularly. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy will reduce the chances of dental disease and bone loss that can cause dental prosthetic devices to fail.

7 Uses for Dental Crowns:

  1. Weak, fracture-prone teeth
  2. Severely damaged teeth
  3. Insufficient tooth structure to support a filling
  4. Bridge attachment
  5. Covering for a dental implant
  6. Cosmetic restoration
  7. Protecting teeth after root canal treatment

3 Problems a Dental Bridge Can Solve:

  1. Gaps caused by tooth shifting
  2. Missing teeth
  3. Bite problems
