Dental Crowns and Bridges Are Natural-Looking Solutions for Problem Teeth

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns (also called caps) or bridges can provide a permanent solution for a variety of dental problems such as missing, weak, fractured, or misshapen teeth. They are typically permanent devices that are cemented into place and can’t be removed by the patient. Before making a dental crown or bridge, the dentist prepares the patient’s teeth by resizing and reshaping them to accommodate the new device. Next, impressions are taken so that the lab can form a new crown or bridge that matches the normal size and shape of the natural tooth it will cover. When porcelain is chosen, the dentist will match the exact color of the patient’s teeth. While the new dental crown or bridge is being made, the patient will wear a temporary one.

What Is a Dental Crown Used For?

  • Weak, fracture-prone teeth
  • Insufficient tooth structure to support a filling
  • Severely damaged teeth
  • Bridge attachment
  • Covering for a dental implant
  • Cosmetic restoration
  • Protecting teeth after root canal treatment

What Problems Can a Dental Bridge Solve?

  • Missing teeth
  • Gaps caused by tooth shifting or rotation
  • Bite problems

How Long Will Dental Crowns and Bridges Last?
Many dental crowns and bridges last a lifetime, but they can become loose or detach from your teeth over time. To increase the longevity of your crown or bridge, practice good oral hygiene, avoid chewing hard foods, and see your dentist in Capitol Heights regularly. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy will reduce the chances of dental disease and bone loss that can cause dental prosthetic devices to fail. To learn more about dental crowns and bridges, make an appointment with an affordable dentist to discuss your options.
