Crowns and bridges are dental prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Unlike dentures, which can be taken out, crowns and bridges can only be removed by a dentist. Dr. Theodore Haines DDS of Snohomish, WA specializes in crowns and bridges and would like to offer some insight into this popular procedure.
Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are cemented to existing teeth or implants that surround an empty space, serving as anchors for the bridge. Porcelain is the most common material choice because it can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
A crown covers a damaged tooth. They are used for various reasons such as strengthening a damaged tooth, improving the tooth’s appearance or shape and to fix alignment issues. As with bridges, crowns can be made of porcelain.
When would I need a crown?
- To attach a bridge
- Replace a filling when not enough tooth remains
- Protecting weak teeth
- Fractured tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discolored tooth
- Cover a tooth that has had a root canal
Crowns and bridges are fairly easy to take care of. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist on a regular basis. Also, steer clear of chewing hard foods such as ice. Follow these simple rules and your crowns and bridges could last a lifetime!
