Dental Crowns and Bridges – How They Independently Work
Any dental work that completely encases the tooth above the gum line is rightly referred to as a dental crown restoration. When a large cavity compromises the health of your tooth, say after a root canal treatment, a dental crown is often needed to restore your smile. Dental crowns can also be used to correct damaged, cracked, discoloured or misshapen teeth. Get fitted with crowns and bridges and achieve aesthetic results as well as reinforced teeth.
In reality, dental crowns are used to “cap” a damaged tooth or totally cover it. Crowns can also equally be placed on top of a dental implant to provide structure for function and a tooth-like shape that mimics your natural teeth. If your teeth are discoloured, fret not. A dental crown of ceramic or porcelain material can be used to match the colour of your natural teeth and restore your smile again. Other crown materials include acrylic, metal and gold alloys.
A dentist may recommend crowns and bridges when you are missing a tooth or when there is no enough tooth remaining from a large filling.
But dental crowns, in particular, can suitably be recommended by your dentist when: protecting a weak tooth from a fracture, aptly restoring a fractured tooth, attaching a dental bridge, covering dental implants, covering a discoloured tooth, poorly shaped or when covering a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
How Dental Bridges Work
To completely understand how crowns and bridges restore your smile, you also have to equally understand why a dental bridge is necessary and how it works. If you are missing a tooth or more teeth, your dentist may recommend dental bridges. Why? Because the remaining teeth will eventually shift or rotate into the empty gaps left by the missing teeth or tooth. Apart from the gaps of missing teeth leading to gum disease, they can also result in a bad bite.
Although dental bridges are necessary for keeping your teeth aligned, dental bridge problems can however occur if you do not properly floss or brush your teeth regularly. Dental crowns and bridges, like natural teeth, require regular cleaning to keep bacteria from causing damage underneath the dental restoration.
