Dental Crowns and Bridges
In the world of cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns are among one of the most popular options for teeth restorations. They not only help restore teeth which are decayed or broken, they aid in restoring the aesthetics and health of your smile.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Indications : A dental crown is indicated
in the following situations :
A tooth which has been weakened by a very large cavity or decayed lesion, often will not have much healthy tooth structure left. As a result there may not be enough tooth structure to support a filling.
These cases are best treated with a crown in order to minimise the risk of the tooth breaking or cracking.
Some teeth may have cracks formed in them or get chipped and broken due to the presence of old fillings, wear and tear or even from grinding teeth together.
A crown would restore the broken tooth and protect the tooth by preventing the crack from spreading further.
Teeth which have been worn down severely from pressure or from acidity and acidic foods, need to be built back up to provide a proper bite as well as restore their appearance.
Teeth which have been Endodontically treated ie teeth which have had root canal treatments done, may require a crown to prevent it from breaking.
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Teeth may be missing due to decay, fractures, injury or accidents, gum disease, or could even be missing congenitally.
The loss of teeth can affect the appearance of your smile, your ability to eat and chew, your speech and the support of your facial structures. If teeth are missing for a long period of time, the other teeth around may start to shift and thus affect the alignment of the remaining teeth.
To replace a missing tooth with an artificial one we may recommend a bridge.
Here the replacement tooth is suspended by crowns made on teeth on either side of the missing tooth. These crowns are firmly bonded to the teeth and the new tooth is suspended between them filling the gap.
So when would you need a crown or a bridge?
