What Are Dental Crowns?
To define a dental crown, it is a cap that covers a tooth in order to improve the look and even size of the tooth. They completely encase the tooth where you don’t see anything but the crown. Often, crowns are made from porcelain, metal or a combination of both.
There are a variety of situations that a dental crown is required. We find that the following are more of the common reasons:
- Protects a weaker tooth
- Improves a worn down tooth in both appearance and function
- Holds a dental bridge in place
- For cosmetic reasons
At times, a filling will not be the right fit and a crown is required. By having a crown put in, you will improve your smile and be more satisfied with how your teeth function.
What Are Dental Bridges?
If you have missing teeth somewhere in your mouth, then you need what is known as a dental bridge. This will restore your bite because a bridge serves as a replacement for a tooth or teeth by filling in the missing space.
There are many benefits that go along with dental bridge work. Your teeth will hold in place better which will make basic things like eating and talking go more smoothly for you.
How Are Crowns and Bridges Made?
North Haven Family Dentistry is skilled in making both crowns and bridges. Here is a little bit about how it works:
Your dentist will utilize a dental handpiece to be sure the crown’s shape will fit your tooth. Then an impression of your took will be made. The dentist will use this as a template for your tooth in order to make the crown that will fit your mouth just right. Once your crown is complete, they will put dental cement into it and they will apply it to your tooth.
Bridges are made custom for your mouth by your dentist. The first step is that they will numb your mouth. The dentist will prepare the teeth around where your bridge will be placed by taking impressions. You’ll have a temporary bridge put in while the actual bridge is being created. Next, they will cement and anchor the new bridge to the neighboring teeth.
