Dental Crown & Bridges

Dental Crown & Bridges

Dental bridges and crowns are two common types of dental restoration procedures that are used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Both procedures involve the placement of an artificial tooth (or teeth) in the mouth to restore oral function and improve the appearance of the smile. A dental bridge is a type of restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth by attaching an artificial tooth (or teeth) to adjacent natural teeth. Bridges can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and gold. They are an effective solution for patients who are missing one or more consecutive teeth.

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are another type of dental restoration that are used to cover and protect a damaged tooth. Crowns can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and gold. They are typically used to restore teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, or to support a dental bridge.

Dental Restoration Procedure

Both dental bridges and crowns are custom-made to fit the specific needs and preferences of each patient. The placement of a bridge or crown typically requires two or more visits to the dental office. During the first visit, the dental professional will prepare the tooth (or teeth) and take impressions to be used as a model for the custom restoration. A temporary restoration may be placed while the custom bridge or crown is being made.

During the second visit, the custom bridge or crown will be placed in the mouth and checked for proper fit and function. Any necessary adjustments will be made at this time.

Dental bridges and crowns are effective solutions for repairing or replacing damaged or missing teeth. If you are in need of a dental bridge or crown, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our expert dental professional at Dr Shwetha’s Dental clinic to discuss your treatment options.
