What is a crown?
What is a bridge?
Once a tooth is lost, it can negatively affect the surrounding teeth by removing the support and stability of the previous tooth. Over time, the adjacent teeth will shift, and this may gradually change your facial appearance.
Dental bridges are designed to fill the gaps left behind by missing teeth. The two adjacent teeth will be shaped to allow a crown to fit and a scan will be taken of your prepared teeth. A bridge will be manufactured which consists of two crowns holding a tooth to replace the gap. Once the bridge is cemented into position, it looks and works just like natural teeth.
When is a crown or bridge required?
Crowns and bridges are used to repair a number of different dental problems.
A crown can be used when:
- A tooth is fractured or damaged
- Too much decay has weakened a tooth
- A tooth is severely discoloured
- A tooth is misshapen
- A dental bridge needs an anchor.
A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is also a possible solution when dentures are unstable, uncomfortable or aesthetically displeasing.
To find out if you’re a suitable candidate for a crown or bridge, it’s essential that you are assessed by a dentist.
