But what exactly are crowns and bridges, and who can benefit from them?
Crowns, also known as caps, are used to cover and protect a decayed, cracked or broken tooth. They can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or gold. Crowns are typically used when a tooth has been damaged by decay or trauma, or when a filling is not sufficient to repair the damage. They can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth, by covering discoloration or correcting the shape of the tooth. Crowns are created in a lab while, in the meantime, your dentist may send you home with a temporary crown until the permanent crown is installed.
Bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace missing teeth. They are made up of one or more crowns, with a false tooth (called a pontic) in the middle. The crowns on either side of the pontic are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap left by the missing tooth, and the pontic is suspended in the gap. Bridges can be made of the same materials as crowns, and are used to restore the function and appearance of the mouth after tooth loss.
Both crowns and bridges are important for maintaining the health and function of the mouth. Missing teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift and may lead to further dental problems, such as gum disease or jaw pain. Crowns and bridges can help to prevent these issues by restoring the natural bite and supporting the surrounding teeth.
