We place a crown on a tooth when fillings are not recommended. Crowns and bridges are used to restore and replace teeth that are damaged or missing. A crown (also referred to as a cap) covers a damaged tooth in its entirety. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can drastically improve a tooth’s appearance and alignment.
A bridge is one or more pontic (artificial) teeth that rest on the gums and are held up by the teeth on either side of the edentulous area. Bridge work can sometimes be challenging as the lab technician must visualize the missing teeth and make them flow with the rest of the natural dentition while also making sure that the teeth are functional for speaking and eating. Gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy or all ceramic material are most commonly used for bridge fabrication. As with a filling or crown the choice depends on multiple factors.
It is important that missing teeth are replaced as soon as possible. This is because, teeth use their neighbors to stay in line and support each other. If not restored, the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward. Even the opposing teeth begin to super erupt into the space. These movements can cause issues with the bite, because the pressure has now changed and this could ultimately lead to TMJ issues.
Crowns and bridges are made by taking an impression of your teeth. The impressions are given to the dental lab technician who will custom make your crown or bridge to fit your teeth and match your natural tooth color. In the meantime, a temporary crown or bridge will be placed until your permanent crown or bridge is ready and permanently cemented into place.Bridges and crowns are very durable and with good hygiene can last a lifetime.
