Dental crowns and bridges completely restore a tooth that has been seriously damaged. Crowns and the majority of bridges are both prosthetic appliances affixed to natural teeth or dental implants. This is in contrast to detachable appliances like dentures, which you need to remove and clean on a regular basis. While crowns and bridges are fundamentally the same things, they serve various purposes.
A crown is used to completely cap or cover a broken or damaged tooth. A crown can also be used to reinforce a tooth that is already weak and to enhance its look, shape, or fit. The colour of your natural teeth can be matched with porcelain or ceramic crowns, although other materials, such as gold, acrylic, and metal alloys can be used.
If you have one or more missing teeth, a bridge may be suggested by your dentist. The remaining teeth progressively move or tilt into the empty areas left by missing teeth, resulting in a poor bite. Gum disease and problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) might also result from the imbalance brought on by missing teeth.
It can be tough to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and your teeth are vulnerable to injuries and damage. Dental crowns and bridges are significant innovations to deal with issues with your gums and teeth.
