What Are Crowns and Bridges?
A dental crown covers and surrounds a damaged tooth. A well-made crown can also permanently protect damaged teeth and boost the appearance of your smile. A bridge is basically two crowns that are connected to stand in as the replacement to your missing tooth. The two crowns cap on either side of the missing tooth and the center tooth bridges the spaces in your smile.
Crowns and bridges can be used to treat several dental issues, including:
- Discolored teeth
- Difficulty chewing and eating
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Missing teeth
- Crooked smiles
- Gaps between teeth
Crown and Bridge Procedure
To determine if you’ll need a procedure for a dental crown or bridge, our dentists will first examine the damaged tooth to asses the corruption and decide on the best methods of approach. We may also need to administer a digital x-ray to better help with the assessment. If a crown or bridge is needed, we’ll first use a local anesthetic to numb the area so the rest of the treatment is pain-free.
To begin the procedure, we remove all the decay from the tooth and shape it to properly fit the crown. We then send the impressions to the lab where your custom-made crown will be fabricated. Creating the crown can take up to several weeks, so we’ll place a temporary crown in the meantime.
