Crowns and Bridges Q & A

What Are Crowns?

Crowns are dental treatments used to repair and protect teeth by covering the visible part of a broken or damaged tooth. Crowns are often placed on top of dental implants to create a natural-looking artificial tooth. They are also used to cover a tooth that is not attractive due to staining or damage. Crowns provide a natural-looking protective covering for teeth that are too damaged or decayed to be repaired with a traditional filling. These dental installations protect teeth from further damage and can improve the appearance of a tooth if it is cracked, stained, broken, or chipped. Porcelain crowns are often preferred because they are tinted to match the neighboring teeth. Crowns are meant to be long-lasting. If your crown becomes loose or damaged, the team can repair or replace the crown.

Why Would Someone Need a Crown?

Crowns are used for a variety of cosmetic and restorative dental services. Some patients choose to cap their teeth with crowns to provide a uniform appearance, while others need crowns to protect and support their teeth. Some of the conditions that crowns are used to treat include:

  • Shielding a weak tooth
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Fixing a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Capping a tooth for additional strength or protection following root canal therapy
  • Substituting a large filling
  • Attaching a bridge

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a dental apparatus that includes one or more artificial teeth in order to span or bridge a gap due to missing teeth. A bridge consists of one or more false teeth attached with crowns to supporting teeth on either side of the gap. The false tooth or teeth are made from metal alloys, gold, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Bridges are secured to the natural neighboring teeth or dental implants if the patient has had these installed. The team applies bridges to address a variety of dental concerns including:

  • Correcting your smile
  • Returning proper chewing and speaking
  • Sustaining the shape of the face
  • Fixing bite problems
  • Keeping remaining teeth from shifting out of place
