Crowns and Bridges

Both crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices, which are cemented on your existing teeth. They are not removable like dentures.   Most commonly used, dental crowns and bridges have many uses and can be made of many materials.

Crown - a crown is used to completely cover or “cup” a damaged tooth.  Crowns are made of material that can last the whole life, provided you care for your teeth and have good dental hygiene, floss and brush your teeth regularly.  Here are just a few benefits of getting a crown:

  • To cover discolored teeth
  • When your tooth is in danger of fracturing or de-bonding
  • To help prevent further fracturing of teeth
  • To help protect a cracked/damaged tooth due to a root canal treatment

Bridges - bridges are used when more than one tooth is missing. They replace the teeth preventing bad bite, and certain gum diseases that can be caused by missing teeth. In addition to that, bridges provide a better aesthetic look and its color can be matched to the color of your teeth, provided you get a ceramic or porcelain bridge. Bridges are cemented onto your existing teeth so they cannot be removed.
