Restore Your Smile
If you have missing or damaged teeth, then you may need some restorative dentistry work. One of the best solutions for repairing broken teeth is the use of a crown or a bridge. Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges offer a permanent solution because they are fixed to existing teeth and can only be removed by a dentist.
When Do You Need a Crown or Bridge?
Many dental problems can be corrected with crowns and bridges. Your dentist may recommend a crown or bridge:
- To keep a weak tooth from fracturing.
- Cover a poorly structured, damaged, or discolored tooth.
- Cover a dental implant.
- Replace a large filling when there’s isn’t enough tooth remaining.
What is a Bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed partial denture that is joined to adjacent teeth or dental implants. It literally “bridges” the gap that is caused by missing teeth. In order to make a bridge fit correctly, sometimes the dentist or oral surgeon must reduce the teeth on each side of the bridge so that it fits correctly. Bridges can be made from porcelain, gold, alloys, or a number of other materials.
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown can help to protect a weakened tooth or a tooth that is threatened by a cavity. Crowns are a tooth-shaped cap that can be placed over a tooth or dental implant. At Colorado Dental Group, we have a number of crown material types from full porcelain to full metal, so the dentist will recommend the best option for you.
