Dental Crowns and bridges are both fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto a person’s own teeth or dental implants. For this reason, the natural tooth/ teeth needs to be prepped by the dentist to allow for the dental crown or dental bridge to fit properly over it. The good news is that such prosthetic devices can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene at home and regular dental check-ups and dental cleanings.
A dental crown is primarily used to cover a damaged tooth to either make it stronger if fractured, cover a dental implant, or root canal, or for aesthetics reasons. A crown can be made in the following materials – porcelain, ceramic, gold, metal alloys and acrylic. Whereas, a dental bridge is mostly used to replace missing teeth to prevent teeth from shifting, gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ). Like dental crowns, the dental lab offers a wide range of materials to ensure durability, comfort and a natural appearance.
