Dental Crowns and Bridges are popular cosmetic dentistry procedures whose primary focus is on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth, and smile. Both the crown and bridge treatments provide restorative as well as cosmetic benefits for a tooth.
Crowns made of ceramic, resin, porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-metal are restorations attached over teeth' surfaces. The crown is often used to hide inadequacies, repair damage, or strengthen weak teeth. A bridge is made with the help of multiple crowns. Bridges are useful to replace the missing teeth and are constructed of one or more artificial teeth attached to crowns on either end. The crown part of the bridge holds the restoration securely, preventing it from shifting when you eat. Crowns are also made use of, to attach to dental implants, the latest tooth restoration solutions. Implants get to fuse with the jawbone and serve as artificial roots.
During the first visit, the dentist will scrutinize the tooth in order to make sure that a crown is a suitable solution for your problem. The affected tooth is shaped and filed down so that it is of the proper size to support the crown. Once the tooth is prepared to get fitted with the crown, an impression will then be taken in order to make a permanent crown. A temporary crown may be given to you while the permanent one is being arranged during the first appointment itself. During the next visit, the permanent crown is fixed after being sure of a proper fit and bite. Once if everything is found to be satisfactory, the crown is attached over the teeth permanently with the help of strong adhesives.
The process of fitting a bridge is also relatively easy and painless. Local anesthesia may be used at the time of fitting the bridges. The dentist, with the help of a dental tool, will drill the teeth so that the bridge fits on top of them, and it will be bonded to hold it permanently in place.
