Do I need a dental crown or dental bridge?

While you may have been born with great teeth, over time that can change. Illness, accident or tooth decay can affect the condition of your teeth. It may cause you to lose one tooth or more than one, leaving a gap in your mouth.

If this is your situation, a dentist may recommend a dental bridge or dental crown.

What are dental crowns & bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges work in the same way. A crown simply covers one tooth while a bridge can be used to replace or fix more than one tooth. Crowns and bridges can be made from porcelain to resemble a real tooth as much as possible so that no one will ever know the difference.

Reasons for a dental crown or bridge

  • To help restore bite. When you’re missing teeth or have damaged teeth, your bite is not as strong as it should be. A dental crown or bridge will strengthen your bite, making eating much more enjoyable.
  • To replace missing or damaged teeth. If you are missing teeth or have damaged teeth your smile is not as bright as it should be, nor are you as confident as you should be. A dental bridge or crown will not only restore your smile and self-confidence, but also protect surrounding teeth to help them remain healthy.
  • To help the jawbone & speech. Missing teeth can result in jaw pain. The problem can be easily fixed with a dental bridge or crown.

Other reasons why a Dental Bridge or crown may be needed include a broken or fractured tooth, decayed teeth, or root canal.
