by Stunning Dentistry Stunning Dentistry

Dental crowns and bridges are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth and to give an aesthetic look to a chipped, broken, or cracked tooth. It helps in restoring normal functions like eating, talking, and smiling.

What are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

A dental crown is a fixed cap or a cover that is put on a tooth. It is most commonly used in discolored, broken, heavily filled, or cracked teeth. The dentists in India make use of metal, acrylic, resin, porcelain, or gold crowns (in few rare cases).

A dental bridge is a structure that fills a gap created by a missing or extracted tooth. It is most commonly used to replace a missing tooth by taking the support of the adjacent teeth called the abutment teeth. The false tooth is placed in between the abutment teeth.


How does Dental Crown Work?

A crown is used to cover a badly carious or damaged tooth. It helps in strengthening the tooth and giving it an improved aesthetic appearance. The crowns are selected on the basis of the location of the tooth and its function. The tooth on which the crown is to be placed is given proper shape and then the impression is taken to prepare the crown. A crown is generally recommended in the following cases:

       To replace a badly destructed tooth that has a large filling.

       Preventing a weak tooth from getting fractured.

       Restoring a fractured tooth.

       To cover a dental implant.

       To cover a discolored tooth or a tooth that is poorly shaped.

       To cover a root canal treated tooth.

How does Dental Bridge Work?

If the patient has one or more missing teeth, it is advisable to replace it with a bridge. An empty space in the oral cavity cause rotation or shifting of the adjacent tooth that results in a bad bite and improper positioning of the teeth. There may be imbalance while chewing that may lead to gum diseases and temporomandibular joint disorder.

The bridge is placed by taking the support of the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The supporting teeth are called abutments and the missing tooth that is being replaced is known as the pontic. The patient is given different material choices that can be chosen for the bridge. The dentist in India can help in taking the decision on the basis of the location of the missing tooth, its use & functionality, and its aesthetic value. The abutment teeth are prepared and given proper shape and the bridge is fixed by taking support from them.
