What Are Dental Crowns and What Are Their Uses?
Dental crowns are restorations that fully encase the visible portions of damaged teeth, restoring their natural strength, form, and function. They can repair teeth weakened due to deep decay with little tooth structure remaining. They can also hold together parts of fractured or cracked teeth and restore worn or broken teeth. Crowns are routinely used to protect and preserve teeth after root canal treatment. When it comes to missing teeth, dental crowns placed on implants can function as tooth replacements and provide a secure anchor for implant-supported bridges or dentures.
Dental crowns also offer an aesthetic cosmetic dentistry solution. They are often used to improve the appearance of misshapen, misaligned, stained, or discolored teeth. Porcelain crowns mimic the properties of tooth enamel, delivering incredibly natural-looking and feeling results.
What Are Dental Bridges and What Are Their Uses?
Similar to partial dentures, a dental bridge is a custom restoration used to literally "bridge" a gap created by missing one or more of your teeth. Bridges are secured to natural teeth or implants on each side of the space.
Gaps left due to tooth loss can cause the neighboring teeth to drift or tilt, resulting in a host of dental problems, including a bad bite. The imbalance resulting from missing one or more of your teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Restoring your missing teeth with dental bridges will restore your healthy, functional smile.
Caring for Your Crowns and Bridges?
Caring for your new restorations will ensure their longevity. Make sure to maintain meticulous oral hygiene habits, including regular brushing and flossing. Avoid biting down on hard foods or objects to prevent damage to your restorations. Don't forget to visit Main Street Dental Smiles for your twice-a-year dental exams to ensure your oral health and your restorations stay in tip-top shape. With proper care, your dental crown or bridge will continue to enhance your smile for many years to come!
