What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are resilient caps that are secured over flawed teeth. Each crown secures a single tooth and is shaped and colored to match the adjoining teeth closely. You can find dental crowns made of different materials that include resin, ceramic and metal however, porcelain is considered to be the strongest and most durable material. As the crowns will cover the natural teeth completely, it will be like you are getting a new tooth from the surface appearance. These often stay in place for years without much maintenance besides your routine dental care. With a crown in place you can naturally chew, talk and smile.

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are the replacement teeth that are held in place by two crowns. The bridges are attached to the crowns and the crowns are then placed over the teeth on each end of the gap between teeth. False teeth are placed along the bridge and gaps are filled on the gum line. Bridges are often made from porcelain, ceramic, metal and resin.

When to Use Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns are often used for hiding the imperfections in the teeth, when one of the

following situation occurs:
  • Teeth is broken or chipped
  • Tooth decay
  • Fillings get Fractured
  • Fillings are large and noticeable

Dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic augmentation if you do not like the shape, color or size of your natural tooth. In case you have a root canal, our dentist at Westheimer Lakes Dental may put a cap over the tooth that is receiving the root canal.

Dental bridges are usually used for filling up the hole left by missing teeth. These bridges prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place. However, these allow you to speak and chew naturally. Dental bridges are often used as functional essentials for maintenance of the integrity of surrounding teeth. But these can also be used cosmetically.
