Dental Crowns or Dental Bridges?

What are dental crowns?

Simply put, dental crowns are tailor-made covers for teeth that are either damaged or not as strong as they used to be. They come in various materials, each chosen to give back your tooth its natural shape, size, strength, and look.

The role of dental crowns

  • Protecting Fragile Teeth: Crowns act as a safeguard for teeth that are either cracked or prone to damage, bolstering their structure.
  • Mending Damaged Teeth: They’re ideal for teeth that have seen better days, whether due to decay, injuries, or large fillings, bringing them back to full function and appearance.
  • Beautifying Teeth: For those teeth that stand out for the wrong reasons—be it their colour or shape—crowns can offer a much-needed makeover.
  • Supporting Dental Bridges: Acting as the foundational pillars for bridges, crowns help fill the void left by missing teeth.
  • Securing Teeth After Root Canal: Post-root canal, a crown is often the final touch, providing added protection and strength.

Choosing the right dental crown

  • Porcelain Crowns: With their chameleon-like ability to blend in, these crowns are perfect for those teeth everyone sees.
  • Metal Crowns: Strong and sturdy, made from gold or other alloys, these are the unsung heroes for your back teeth, where the grind is real.

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are essentially gap-fillers, using artificial teeth to cover spaces left by missing ones. Supported by crowns on neighbouring teeth, bridges not only elevate your smile but also play a crucial part in maintaining the health and functionality of your mouth.

The importance of dental bridges

  • Replacing Missing Teeth: They fill the gaps, keeping potential dental troubles at bay.
  • Restoring Your Bite: With bridges, eating becomes a joy again, allowing for a varied and enjoyable diet.
  • Keeping Your Face’s Shape: Over time, missing teeth can alter your face’s appearance. Bridges help in keeping everything in place.
  • Enhancing Speech: Missing teeth might affect how you speak. Bridges can help you speak clearly and confidently again.

Types of dental bridges

  • Traditional Bridges: The go-to option, where pontics are held in place by crowns on either side of the gap.
  • Cantilever Bridges: When there’s only one tooth available to anchor the bridge, this type steps in.
  • Maryland Bridges: A less invasive option, these use a framework attached to the back of adjacent teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: The sturdiest option, anchored directly into the jawbone for a fit that’s as close to natural as possible.
