What Is a Crown or Bridge?
Crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices that mimic the exact look of a person’s existing teeth. They are cemented to the teeth or attached by implants to create a seamless look. A crown covers a damaged tooth entirely and can even be used to cover an implant. A bridge is a prosthetic tooth used to fill in where a tooth or teeth are missing. Filling any gaps helps to prevent remaining teeth from shifting and can even combat potential bone loss. Crowns and bridges may be recommended for several reasons, including:
- Protecting a weak tooth, so it does not break
- Restoring a fractured tooth
- Covering a dental implant
- Covering a tooth that is discolored or poorly shaped
- Covering a tooth that’s undergone root canal treatment
- Filling in gaps where a tooth or teeth are missing
Caring for Your Crown or Bridge
If you’re ready to start showing off your smile once again, we suggest investing in crowns or bridges to cover and replace your damaged or missing teeth. It’s important to note that while crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they should be taken care of just as you would your natural teeth. You can take care of your restorations by practicing good dental hygiene techniques that work to keep your teeth and gums healthy. You should also avoid chewing hard foods, ice, and other hard objects to avoid damaging these prosthetics.
