Crown & Bridges Example

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Crowns cover and protect weak or compromised teeth. Some people refer to them as “caps” since they set over a tooth like a helmet or a shell.

You may need a ceramic dental crown if your tooth:

  • Is severely fractured or worn down
  • Was recently treated with a root canal
  • Shows signs of aggressive decay
  • Is not stable enough to support a filling

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are traditional restorations used to replace one or two teeth. They feature an artificial tooth that is suspended between two functional crowns, made to span the area created by a missing or extracted tooth. Bridges are helpful if the adjacent teeth could benefit from additional reinforcement. They also act as placeholders to avoid tooth shifting or bite changes throughout your mouth.

Home Care and Maintenance

It’s extremely important that you care for your crown or bridge the same way you would any other natural tooth. Although these restorations cannot develop cavities, the tooth they rest on top of can still attracts bacteria. Good oral hygiene is essential.

Implant Supported Crowns and Bridges

If you have missing teeth, dental implants can support single (crown) or multi-tooth (bridge) restorations to permanently fill in that space without impacting other teeth.
