Dental crowns are used as a cap positioned over a tooth which restores the shape, size, strength, and improves appearance. Once the crown is cemented in place, it encases the full portion of the tooth which is visible above the gum line. Dental crowns can be used to:
Based upon the treatment you need, and your preferences, there are several different crowns available. Permanent crowns can be made from metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-resin, or all-ceramic.
Crowns can have either temporary or permanent placement. Temporary crowns can be made of acrylic or stainless steel. These types of crowns are usually used for a temporary restoration until a permanent crown is ready.
Crowns are used as restoration for an existing tooth to get it back to a more natural appearance. A bridge is used to help fill the gaps from missing teeth. Bridges and crowns are different from dentures, as they are fixed prosthetics. If a problem comes up, causing additional treatment, a dentist will be the only one able to remove these materials.
Dental bridges are used to fill gaps from missing teeth and help retain the structure of an individual’s smile. When a tooth is lost, it creates a gap in the alignment of teeth. When the space is no longer filled with a tooth, the others are more likely to move out of place. A dental bridge can help keep the teeth in balance.
