A Fresh Start to Your Smile: Get Rid of Broken & Damaged Teeth
If you are missing teeth or have damaged teeth, then you might be in need of restorative dentistry work. Crowns and bridges are often the recommended solution to fixing these issues. Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges are fixed pieces that are cemented onto existing teeth and can only be removed by a dentist.
When Do You Need a Crown or Bridge?
Your dentist may recommend a crown or bridge to do the following:
- Restore a damaged tooth.
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
- Replace a large filling when there’s isn’t enough tooth remaining.
- Cover a dental implant.
- Cover a discolored or poorly structured tooth.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth or dental implant, which helps to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure. Crowns are often used when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. At Panorama Dental, we have a number of crown material types from full porcelain to full metal, so our dentist will recommend the best option for you.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration appliance that is used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Oftentimes, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth must be reduced in size in order for the bridge to attach correctly. Like crowns, bridges are fully customizable and made of various materials, including porcelain and metals.
