Difference between Crown and Bridges
Dental crowns, sometimes known as ‘caps’, are restorations which are custom-fabricated to cover over your existing weak or damaged teeth. They will protect them and improve their cosmetic appearance. A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth and consists of one or more crowns, joined together to close the gap between two supporting healthy teeth.
Choose your Crown/Bridge
Crowns and bridges can be made from a number of different materials, from non-precious metal, to gold or porcelain. Depending on your particular case, the dentist will determine which crown material will be best suited. This may be influenced by aesthetics or function and strength.
How long does it need to complete the treatment?
Crowns and bridges are normally completed over two appointments. At your first visit, the dentist will take an X-ray to check for any underlying infection. Then, a series of steps will be carried out to reshape and prepare your tooth for the crown. Dental impressions will then be taken of the final preparation, followed by cementation of a temporary crown to help protect your tooth whilst your crown is being fabricated. Your crown will be prepared in the lab and be ready in a week. This will fit precisely over your tooth and will afford it protection for many years to come!
