Crowns are artificial caps, typically made from a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are usually used to bring back a tooth's function and look following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that big parts of the tooth needs to be eliminated, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a broken tooth from worsening, attach bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as an aesthetic use, and are used when a discolored or stained tooth has to be restored to its natural look.

Treatments

A tooth must usually be decreased in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made from the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent to a special lab, which makes a custom-designed crown. In many cases, a short-term crown is applied till the permanent crown is ready. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often mistaken as veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are generally applied only to fairly small locations.

Caring For Your Crowns

With appropriate care, a good quality crown could last approximately eight years or longer. It is crucial to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Certain habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) considerably reduce the life of a crown. Moreover, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or perhaps harm the crown.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.

There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.

Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.

A Couple Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:

  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.

  • Maintain facial shape.

  • Fill space of missing teeth.

  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

  • Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

  • Restore your smile.


What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?

Getting a bridge generally requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks until your next visit.

At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfortable bite.

You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.

Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?

This is an option for filling the area produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an precise science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.

It is very important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, developing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
