Bridges are exactly that: a bridge. They cover a gap between existing natural teeth or implants and these adjacent teeth are prepared as crowns with a replacement tooth in the middle attached to cover the gap. You have the same advantages as crowns regarding aesthetics and matching tooth colour.
Crowns and most bridges are prostheses that are placed fixedly. Unlike removable dentures, which can be removed and cleaned daily, crowns and fixed bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and only a dentist can remove them.
How do Crowns Work?
A crown is used to completely cover a damaged tooth. In addition, it can be used to improve the appearance, shape or alignment of the tooth. A crown can also be placed on an implant to achieve the shape and functional structure of a tooth. It is possible to match the color of porcelain or ceramic crowns with their natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal, acrylic and ceramic alloys. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain, and are recommended for back teeth. Sometimes usually used Porcelain bonded to the outer face of a metal ring, thus providing a strong restoring and aesthetically pleasing.
Implants do not require that other healthy teeth be drilled and prepared like they do for a bridge.
Dental implants are more expensive, but they come with many advantages like offering a more natural feel compared to bridges and dentures that can sometimes shift or slip in your mouth. Implants don’t usually hamper eating or speaking like some other options can.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It is used to strengthen and protect your tooth structure. Most crowns are made of a hard, white substance to help them look natural.
A dental bridge covers or “bridges” the gap between missing teeth.
After you lose a tooth, your dentist may suggest that you get a bridge. A bridge can keep your other teeth from moving out of place.
Once a bridge is placed, it works just like your natural teeth.
