Crowns & Bridges
Dental crown falls under the category of teeth restoration and consists of capping a natural tooth or an artificial implant. A crown is required when there’s a major cavity issue that endangers the very structure of your natural tooth. On the other hand, a bridge substitutes a missing tooth by linking an artificial tooth to an implant or close by teeth.
Variety of Crowns
Crowns are usually attached to the tooth with the aid of a special dental cement. There are three kinds of crowns:
- Porcelain exterior covering with a metal crown
- Complete porcelain crown
- Complete metal crown which is generally made up of gold
They all vary in terms of longevity, look, stability, and price. Crowns made up of porcelain are generally preferred as they are affordable and durable when compared to other materials and indeed look natural. Crowns have a lifetime of over a decade and longer depending on how well you take care and maintain your oral health.
It is a surgical process that effectively relines the gum tissue and generally the tooth’s bone. This process is quite necessary to fix the crown, as it ensures the required space between the crown and the underlying bone. This makes sure the crown doesn’t hurt the gum and bone tissue.
Variety of Bridges
The substances availed for creating bridges consist of a mix of porcelain and metal or just complete porcelain. Close-by teeth are generally decreased in size to assist the substance availed to substitute the lost or missing tooth.
