Crowns and Bridges Q & A

What are crowns and bridges?

Crowns cap weakened or damaged teeth to restore their strength and improve your smile’s appearance. Your provider can also attach crowns to dental implants to replace missing teeth or use them after root canal therapy to protect a natural tooth. 

A dental bridge involves replacing one or more of your missing teeth with fake teeth. Bridges consist of a false tooth (or teeth) anchored to one or two real teeth. They can also attach to a dental implant. Bridges may be either fixed (permanent) or removable. 

Dorri’s Dental utilizes a state-of-the-art 3D intraoral scanner and special software that creates a digital blueprint of your mouth. 

Your provider can use this blueprint to develop a personalized treatment plan and send lab technicians the data to create crowns and bridges that fit seamlessly to match your smile.

Porcelain crowns and bridges also closely resemble the color and sheen of your natural teeth. Ceramic options share this aesthetic advantage and are free from metal, making them an excellent choice if you have metal allergies.

What are the benefits of crowns or bridges?

A crown has several benefits, including: 

  • Shielding weak teeth from further damage
  • Holding together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Restoring broken or worn-down teeth
  • Covering a large filling
  • Attaching to dental implants 
  • Covering misshapen or stained teeth
  • Enhancing smile aesthetics
  • Correcting bite irregularities
  • Holding a dental bridge

Bridges have benefits like a restored smile, biting, and chewing capabilities, and maintaining face shape.

A gap between your teeth can be harmful to your dental health. Bridges can prevent your teeth from shifting, which could result in a painful change in your bite.

How do I care for crowns and bridges?

A dental crown can last 5-15 years, depending on your oral hygiene. Habits like teeth grinding or chewing on hard substances may also diminish their permanence. 

A proper oral hygiene routine is crucial to caring for crowns and bridges. You should follow your brushing and flossing schedule and rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash.
