What is a crown?
Used to cover and strengthen a weakened tooth and to serve as an anchor for a dental bridge, dental crowns are typically made with porcelain or ceramic materials that closely resemble the shade of your natural teeth. They are used on top of a dental implant to mimic a natural tooth in both its function and appearance.
What is a bridge?
Because missing teeth often cause surrounding teeth to shift or rotate, it can lead to a bad bite, as well as gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. A dental bridge is a prosthodontic device that can fill in areas of the mouth where one or more teeth are missing, helping to prevent these issues.
Spanning the area where teeth are missing – literally ‘bridging the gap’ – bridges are anchored to natural teeth or crown-covered implants on one or more sides of the empty space. A replacement prosthetic tooth (also called a pontic) is placed between the space and is attached to the anchoring teeth.
How long do crowns & bridges last?
With proper and ongoing dental care, these devices can last many years!
