Dental crowns and bridges are effective treatments for various dental problems. Broken teeth, deep decay, misshapen teeth and more can be fixed with dental crowns and bridge treatments. Dental crowns and bridges fit over your existing teeth, helping to reinforce the natural structure and help prevent the damage from spreading or worsening.
Whom Are Dental Crowns & Bridges Suited For?
Dental Crowns & Bridges can be an excellent solution for many different kinds of people
- Restoring a tooth that has become worn or weak due to a large dental filling that is starting to fail
- Providing a solid foundation to hold a dental bridge securely in place
- Giving a tooth that has become discoloured or stained an improvement in appearance
- Providing valuable protection to a tooth that has become brittle after a root canal treatment
- Reshaping an irregular tooth
- Finishing off a dental implant
When Do You Need A Dental Crown Or Bridge?
Dental crowns and bridges are suitable for a wide range of people. Are any of the following true for you?
- You have fractured or broken teeth
- You are interested in cosmetic enhancement
- You’ve had a root canal done
- Your teeth have advanced cavities
- You’re interested in cosmetic improvements to misshapen teeth
- Your teeth have become weakened
- Bruxism (teeth grinding) has damaged your teeth
They can be used to treat the most severe decay and even be an option to replace a broken or extremely damaged tooth. Dental crowns are usually a less expensive treatment option and can save money in the long term by helping slow down (or halt completely) the slow progress of oral health problems that would cost money to treat down the line.
By being anchored to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap, a dental bridge also closes the space left by missing teeth. Even if the two teeth to which the bridge is affixed are healthy, they will need to be reshaped, which is one of the biggest disadvantages of a dental bridge. This is done to make room for the dental crowns that secure the bridge in place by attaching to it.
