Dental Crowns & Bridges

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns and bridges are fixed prostheses cemented onto a patient’s existing teeth or implants to replace damaged or missing teeth.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a “cap” that is placed over an existing tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or to improve its appearance. They are also used to protect those teeth that have undergone root canal therapy.

Commonly, dental crowns are made of porcelain, zirconium, resin, or metal. Porcelain is one of the most widely used materials thanks to the fact that it provides a natural appearance and is also very resistant. With proper care, a dental crown can last up to 15 years.

When is a Dental Crown needed?

There are different reasons as to why a dental crown may be required. Some of the most common include:

  • To replace large fillings. Fillings are usually meant to cover small holes. If more than 50% of a tooth is damaged, then a crown could be placed instead of a filling to provide adequate protection.

  • To replace missing teeth. Tooth crowns are widely used over dental implants (which are artificial tooth roots) to replace missing teeth.

  • To treat broken cusps. A cusp is a hard eminence on a tooth that emerges from the surface on which the tooth bites (canine teeth each possess a single cusp, premolars have two and molars normally possess either four or five cusps). In this case, a crown can be used to prevent fractures.

  • To improve the appearance of the teeth. Crowns are a good way to cover teeth that are discolored, badly shaped, or cracked; they are fabricated to match neighboring teeth in size, shape, and color so that the final result will be beautiful and functional.

  • To seal a tooth after root canal therapy. Since a root canal involves drilling into the tooth to gain access to an infection, it may make your tooth weaker, requiring a permanent dental restoration to remain healthy, like a dental crown.

What is a Dental Bridge?

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a prosthetic appliance used to “fill” the gap left by a missing or extracted tooth; they are supported on natural teeth or implants, which serve as anchors.

Dental bridges – which can be made of materials such as metal, ceramic, resin, or porcelain – are designed to recover the aesthetics and the masticatory function of the patient. In addition, they provide the following benefits:

  • They are cheaper than a dental implant.

  • They are very durable.

  • They help prevent the mobility of neighboring teeth.

  • They are easy to care for and maintain.

Types of Dental Bridges

There are 3 types of dental bridges, each with different characteristics in terms of design:

  • Traditional Dental Bridges. It is the most popular type of dental bridge. They can be made up of one or more false teeth; commonly used when the patient has teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth or teeth.

  • Cantilever Dental Bridges. They are very similar to traditional dental bridges, but instead of being supported on two anchors, they are supported on just one. Typically, this type of dental bridge is used in areas where there is less pressure during chewing.

  • Maryland Dental Bridges. This type of bridge is attached to the inner surface of the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. Unlike others, with this one it is not necessary to carve the structure of the supporting teeth, but the patient must have healthy and strong natural teeth. Typically, a Maryland bridge is a temporary solution for those who have undergone a dental implant surgery.
