What is a Dental Crown?
Dental Crowns are a common type of dental restoration used to improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Whether you’re suffering from decay, stains, wear and tear, or damage, dental crowns can help restore your smile. The main differences between a crown and other restorations like fillings, inlays, and onlays, is that they cover the entire tooth that is visible above the gum line and become the ‘new’ outer surface of your tooth. These restorations are ideal for teeth that have large existing restorations, damage, decay, or teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy.
Dental Crowns can be used to fix oral issues such as:
- Tooth decay
- Missing or broken teeth
- Advanced gum disease
- Problems with biting and chewing
Crowns can be fabricated in a variety of materials including gold alloy, porcelain, or a mixture of these substances. Donsdale Dental will work with you to help you choose the appropriate crown for your situation.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental Bridges are another type of dental restoration that replaces multiple missing teeth by placing an artificial tooth in the area where there is a gap.
Bridges can be extremely durable, strong, and aesthetically pleasing. Teeth adjacent to a gap are crowned to keep the bridge in place and stabilize your overall bite. Not only do bridges enhance your speaking and chewing abilities, but they also allow your bite to feel more balanced and healthy.
Bridges are natural-looking since the porcelain material is customized to your teeth’s natural shade. Bridges are a semi-permanent restoration in that they can only be removed by your dentist once placed, and they normally last for many years.
