Restoring Function and Aesthetics

Crown and bridge dentistry is a branch of restorative dentistry that focuses on repairing and replacing damaged or missing teeth. Crowns and bridges are dental prosthetic devices that serve different purposes:

dental crown

Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a custom-made restoration that covers and protects a damaged or weakened tooth. It restores the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance, allowing it to function properly. Crowns are commonly used to treat teeth with extensive decay, cracks, fractures, or after root canal therapy.

dental bridges

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap between two healthy teeth or dental implants. It consists of artificial teeth, called pontics, which are anchored to adjacent teeth or implants. Dental bridges restore your ability to chew and speak properly, prevent teeth from shifting, and enhance your smile’s aesthetics.

Why might a person need crowns and bridges?

Tooth Decay and Damage

Teeth that are severely decayed, cracked, or fractured may require dental crowns to restore their strength and protect them from further damage. Crowns provide a durable and natural-looking solution to preserving damaged teeth.

Missing Teeth

Missing Teeth

Gaps from missing teeth can cause various issues, such as difficulty chewing, speech problems, and an altered bite. Dental bridges offer a fixed and stable solution to replace missing teeth, restoring your ability to bite, chew, and speak confidently.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Aesthetics

Crowns and bridges not only restore functionality but also improve the appearance of your smile. They can enhance the shape, colour, and alignment of your teeth, resulting in a more natural and attractive smile.

Bone Preservation

Support for Dental Implants

Dental crowns are often used in conjunction with dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots placed in the jawbone. Crowns are attached to the implants to replace individual missing teeth, providing a sturdy and long-lasting solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do crowns and bridges last?

With proper care and maintenance, crowns and bridges can last for many years, typically between 10 and 15 years or even longer. Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene practises are essential for their longevity.

Are crowns and bridges noticeable or uncomfortable?

Modern dental materials and techniques allow us to create crowns and bridges that closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and comfort. They are custom-made to fit your mouth, ensuring a comfortable and natural-looking result.

How long does it take to get a crown or bridge?

The process of getting a crown or bridge typically requires two or more dental visits. On the first visit, your tooth is prepared, impressions are made, and a temporary restoration is installed. In subsequent visits, the final restoration is fabricated and securely placed.

Can I eat normally with a crown or bridge?

Yes, once your mouth adjusts to the new crown or bridge, you can eat normally. However, it’s recommended to avoid excessively hard or sticky foods to prevent damaging the restoration.

Can crowns and bridges be replaced if needed?
