What Are Crowns & Bridges?

Crowns and bridges are used to repair and replace missing or damaged teeth. Crowns, which are sometimes referred to as caps, are placed over either the natural tooth or already-existing dental implants. Meanwhile, bridges are designed to fill in gaps where teeth are missing. Bridges are then anchored to either the adjacent natural teeth or crowns. Both crowns and bridges have the appearance of natural teeth.

A dental crown or bridge may be right for you if you have:

  • Damaged teeth which are still intact
  • Decayed teeth which are still intact
  • Missing teeth which are still surrounded by existing teeth or crowns

Once you and your dentist have determined if you are a good candidate for bridge or crown work, an impression of your mouth will be taken to create a mold for the new dental prosthetics. You will then decide with your dentist what material will be used to make your crown or bridge. If you select porcelain, your teeth with be color-matched, ensuring that your new work blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.

After your bridge or crown work has been completed, you may experience some soreness and/or sensitivity while your mouth heals. This is common. However, if you are concerned, it’s always a good idea to check in with your dentist and you should always attend any scheduled follow-up appointments.
