What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are often used to protect and restore damaged, root filled or decayed teeth to their former glory. They cover the entire outer surface of your prepared tooth and are sometimes referred to as ‘caps’.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges consist of a unit of multiple crowns held together and are used to replace missing teeth or ‘bridge’ the gap between healthy teeth. The two crown units on either end of the bridge are hollow and are fixed over the top of the supporting teeth either side of the gap. With dental bridges particular attention must be paid to oral hygiene and to ensure you clean properly underneath the bridge.
A bridge will:
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
