Crowns And Bridges
What is a Crown or a Bridge?
Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Crowns (aka caps) are used most commonly to entirely cover a damaged tooth or an implant. if you’re missing one or more teeth, bridges can be a good option to replace (bridge) the missing ones. Bridges are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.
Why You Might Need A Crown
Missing a tooth? Overtime, gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a change of bite or lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. You may need a crown for a number of reasons, including to:
- Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth structure remaining
- Strengthen a weak tooth from fracturing/ Restoring a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
