What are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?

Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you
can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be
removed by a dentist and expert by Dheer Dental Clinic which is Best Dental Clinic in Chandigarh

How do Crowns Work?

A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be
used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a
tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural
teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than
porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both
strong and attractive must visit your Best Dental Clinic in Chandigarh

Your dentist may recommend a crown to:

 Replace a large filling when there isnt enough tooth remaining
 Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
 Restore a fractured tooth
 Attach a bridge
 Cover a dental implant
 Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
 Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

How do Bridges Work?

A bridge may be recommended if you're missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the
remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing
teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing.
Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments,
serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the
abutments. As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Your dentist can help you decide which to
use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or
ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natura l teeth.
How are Crowns and Bridges Made?
Before either a crown or a bridge can be made, the tooth (or teeth) must be reduced in size so that the crown or
bridge will fit over it properly. After reducing the tooth/teeth, your dentist will take an impression to provide an exact
mold for the crown or bridge. If porcelain is to be used, your dentist will determine the correct shade for the crown or
bridge to match the color of your existing teeth.
