Dental crowns and bridges are devices used in dental prosthetics to substitute missing teeth. Prosthetic devices can be divided into removable and fixed ones. Dental crowns and bridges pertain to fixed dental devices and cannot be removed unless you undergo a specific procedure commonly executed by your dentist. A crown is recommended when you find yourself with a severely damaged tooth. A crown acts as a cover to the missing and damaged part of the tooth and protects it from further deterioration. When a crown is placed to cap the tooth in question, it provides the structural support necessary for you to chew normally and to improve your smile aesthetically.

A crown is also used as a part of a dental implant. Once the implant is inserted, a crown is positioned on top of it and acts as the substitute to the missing tooth. The most common cases of crown application include the following:

when a tooth is severely damaged by caries
when a tooth is chipped or severely fractured
to fix a bridge
as part of a dental implant
to cap a tooth after a root canal treatment
to cap a tooth for the sole purpose of improving its shape and color

Bridges, a device composed by more crowns fixed together, are also employed when you miss one or more teeth to improve your chewing and enhance your smile aesthetically. Ones built to match the color and shape of your teeth, bridges are attached to your natural teeth, adjoining the missing one/ones. Bridges can also be cemented to implants and cover the empty spaces caused by missing teeth. In this case, implants or natural teeth serve as an anchor to a bridge positioned strategically to replace the missing tooth or teeth.

A crown or a bridge is designed to match your teeth shape and natural color. Crowns can be made of:
  • porcelain
  • ceramic
  • acrylic
  • metal alloys
  • gold

Porcelain and ceramic crowns are certainly the best choice when looking for a highly aestethic device accompanied by long lasting results. However, the cost of these is higher than crowns made of poorer materials such as acrylic. Remember than crowns and bridges are permanent solutions meant to last a life time and therefore quality should be a priority when choosing your crowns rather than thinking of an affordable solution.
