The Basics of Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a false tooth, usually made of porcelain. Crowns are designed to fit over your existing enamel after it has been trimmed. Then, they cover up the entire structure of your tooth, all the way down to the gumline. Essentially, your crown will cover up, protect, and replace your existing tooth.

Common Issues Solved by Dental Crowns 

Dental crowns are usually used to treat teeth that have a large cavity and cannot be treated with a filling. A crown may also be recommended to replace an old, large filling that is failing.

Crowns are also used to repair damaged teeth. If your tooth is cracked or broken, a crown is a good way to restore it and prevent further damage. Crowns may also be recommended to cover up a tooth after it has been treated with a root canal.

The Basics of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are an alternative to dental implants and dentures. Bridges attach permanently to two of your healthy teeth using dental crowns. One or more false teeth (pontics) are attached to these “abutment crowns,” and they fill up the gap in your smile where your missing tooth used to be.

Depending on your case, a bridge may be used to restore one missing tooth, but bridges can also be used to restore a row of 2, 3, or more missing teeth. This makes them an appealing option if you’ve lost multiple teeth in the same area of your mouth due to decay or an oral injury.

When it comes to overall longevity, lifespan, and effectiveness, bridges are between dentures and dental implants. They last up to 10 years or longer, which is longer than a typical partial denture, but is not as long as the 30+ years lifespan of an implant. 

They are also stronger and more durable than dentures, since they are permanently attached to your teeth, but they are not quite as strong as dental implants, which are implanted directly into your gum and jaw tissue.

Good Candidates for Dental Bridges
If you have a relatively healthy mouth that’s free of gum disease and extensive decay, but you have lost one or more teeth, particularly teeth that are next to each other, dental bridges may be a good way to restore your smile. 

To find out if you’re a good candidate and to learn more about the benefits of dental bridges, you can schedule a consultation at Dulles Life Smiles with Dr. Gino, and explore your options for tooth replacement, such as dentures, bridges, and implants, in further detail.
