Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and dental bridges serve two different purposes. A crown is designed to restore and protect a damaged tooth or add the finishing touch to a dental implant, while a bridge is designed to fill the gap created when you lose a tooth while strengthening the adjacent teeth. A dental bridge typically consists of two crowns separated by a false tooth known as a pontic.

Dental crowns and bridges are typically made in a laboratory from porcelain, acrylic, and ceramic materials that can more closely match your natural teeth. Acrylic and ceramic options are durable and aesthetically pleasing. Some crowns are made of porcelain over metal to provide greater strength to the restoration. By practicing good oral hygiene and having regular dental cleanings, your crown or bridge should last many years.
