What is a Dental Bridge or Crown? Dental-Crowns-and-Bridges---Eley-Family-Dentistry-Melbourne-Florida-Dentist

A dental bridge is a procedure to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges are one of the options for restoring an empty space between two teeth, creating one connected unit that looks like multiple teeth. A Dental Bridge attaches to the teeth on either side of an empty space, and is not removable. Producing a cap for the teeth on either side of the space and putting a false tooth or teeth between the crowns creates a traditional bridge. Natural teeth or implants can support the bridge. The fake tooth or teeth are connected to the caps and fill the hollow distance. The bridge is one way to restore your beautiful smile.

Crowns can be used to restore a weak, fractured tooth, or in conjunction with an implant to replace a missing tooth. A dental crown can be used to cover and restore a damaged tooth. A crown can not only improve the appearance of a tooth but it can also strengthen the damaged tooth. Even if the entire oral cavity is affected, the entire shape and alignment of your smile can be restored. A crown can also be put on top of an implant to provide a an original tooth-like pattern for proper function. Crowns can be made from many different materials. Porcelain and Ceramic are the most popular because they are both able to match the original color of your teeth. Just like Dental bridges, crowns are used to restore that gorgeous smile.

Developed to give you a beautiful smile, dental bridges and dental crowns are prosthetic aids. Although dentures act as prosthetic aids also, the function of dental bridges and crowns is different in that they are not separable devices. Both can only be removed by a dental practitioner because they are cemented into the oral cavity.

Both Dental crowns and bridges aim to restore oral function and appearance. By doing any of these procedures, the result will be a beautiful, aligned and shaped smile.

Why Would Someone Need a Dental Bridge or Dental Crown?

The dental bridge procedure aims to better the overall oral health of the oral cavity. This is one of the recommended procedures if you are lacking one or more teeth. If these gaps are not treated, the teeth in that area will often rotate and tip into the empty spaces. This can lead to a bad oral alignment. If the imbalance is not corrected, more severe things can and will happen. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or gum disease disorders are often caused as a result of teeth that are missing. Both dental bridges and implant supported crowns can restore the gap between teeth to prevent misalignment.

What are the Benefits of Dental Bridges and Crowns?

Dental crowns can cover and restore decayed or fractured teeth, preventing further damage that may result in losing the tooth. Dental bridges can replace missing teeth in your mouth, restoring lost chewing function, and preventing the drifting of adjacent teeth. These treatments are mainly used to regain oral appearance. However, the benefits do not stop there. After these treatments, oral functionality and alignment will be greatly improved. Choosing to wait on these treatments may lead to other, more complicated oral difficulties.

What’s the Cost of Dental Bridges or Dental Crowns?

Dental bridges and crowns vary in price depending on the patients needs. Eley Family Dentistry will work with patients to give the optimal financial option.
