CROWNS AND BRIDGES
CROWNS AND BRIDGES
If you want to restore your smile back, or fix or replace a chipped tooth, then a crown or a bridge might be the best option for you. Crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices that can not only enhance the appearance of your teeth, but it can also strengthen your teeth while restoring the your beautiful smile.
What are Crowns and Bridges?
Crown and bridges are fixed devices. So, once they are implanted into your mouth, they are there to stay. Dentures and similar devices are removable, but bridges and crowns are not. They are permanently cemented into your mouth and can only be removed by a dentist.
Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges cannot be removed for cleaning purposes. In fact, patients can treat them like normal teeth. Even though crowns and bridges are considered dental implants, proper dental hygiene is still important for the care and maintenance of your teeth and dental implants.
You may benefit from a crown or a bridge if you have one or more of the following issues with your teeth:
- Teeth that have been chipped or broken, or need to be fixed and replaced
- Root canals that require a crown to cover the repaired tooth
- Strengthen and hold together cracked or otherwise weakened teeth
- Hold dental bridges in place
