What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges are fixed solutions for compromised teeth. At Smile League Dental, our team of professional dentists uses prosthetic devices to restore the natural look of your teeth.

A crown is a permanently “glued” manufactured tooth made of porcelain or porcelain fused with metal used to cover a damaged tooth. It is customized depending on the specific texture and color of your teeth.

Bridges, on the other hand, are prosthetic appliances for missing teeth. They are crowned but in a framework, serving to replace one or more missing tooth/teeth. They are usually made of porcelain fused to metal for maximum durability and a natural look.

Why Get a Dental Crown

You may have to get a dental crown for the following reasons:

  • Extensive tooth decay – if your tooth has a lot of cavities, and fillings may not be able to solve the problem
  • Failed fillings with recurrent decay – when an existing large filling is decaying again, your tooth may be better off getting a crown than a new filling
  • Root canal treated tooth – when a tooth undergoes a root canal treatment procedure, it becomes weaker due to blood loss and disturbed nerve supply, and has no means of remineralization. Also, the decay around it might be extensive, predisposing it to high risk for a fracture. Crowns may help prevent a potential fracture, as a standard of care following root canal treatment procedures.

Procedure for Crowns

Before fitting a crown over a damaged tooth, the dentist removes decay and files down the tooth into a smaller structure so that it fits the crown perfectly. The crown sits on the tooth like a cap and is the dentist then cements it into place.

Types of Dental Crowns

  • All ceramic/Porcelain: IPS/Emax, zirconia, Bruxer crowns
