Crowns are strong, protective coverings that surround the entire tooth, helping to correct issues like chips, large decayed areas, dark fillings, and broken teeth. They're also used to provide strength for the teeth on either side of a bridge, enabling those teeth to support the added pressures of the bridge without excessive wear or damage. Crowns are very durable and can be colored to match your teeth so they look completely natural.
Bridges are used to replace teeth lost to decay or trauma. They comprise both a framework and an artificial tooth or teeth. Bridges can be either removable or fixed; in either case, they attach to the teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. Many people prefer them to partial dentures because they don't have the same slippage issues and they tend to feel much more comfortable and natural.
The bridge procedure begins by shaping and strengthening the teeth that will be used to support the bridge. This is accomplished with crowns. During the first visit, the teeth will be gently shaped to provide room for the crowns and an impression will be made for both the crowns and the bridge itself. At the second visit, the crowns will be put in place using special, strong dental adhesive and the bridge will be attached and adjusted for an ideal fit. The teeth or tooth attached to the bridge can be custom-tinted to match your own teeth for a natural, healthy look.
Removable bridges are easy to care for – simply remove them to clean them and the gums and teeth around them. Fixed bridges require a little more effort to keep the gums and neighboring teeth healthy.
