What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is essentially a prosthetic tooth fitted over an existing tooth.
Crowns are used to improve:
They are typically made of dental porcelain, which comes in a variety of shades. In addition to improving your appearance, a crown can make it easier to eat and communicate.
To affix a crown, we will need to narrow your existing tooth with specialized dental tools. Then, the crown is fitted over the tooth so that it reaches the gum line. We secure it in place with the help of a light-cured resin and a special dental curing light. If you don’t need a full crown, you can also opt for a partial crown, known as an onlay.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge involves a prosthetic tooth or teeth fit between two crowns. If you are completely missing a tooth, or several teeth in a row, a bridge can fill the gap and give you a seamless smile. To secure a bridge, our dentist will need to create two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. Specially crafted prosthetic teeth are suspended in between the two crowns. We normally make these bridges out of a special porcelain that will reflect light and be slightly translucent, just like your other teeth.
