Crowns And Bridges Treatment
When your tooth is damaged but not lost, a dental crown is the best alternative to restore its structure and function. Crown, often called as a ‘cap’ is an artificial tooth that covers the damaged tooth. It encircles the natural tooth, thus giving it back the natural appearance and desired strength.
WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?
Tooth bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. When a tooth is missing, the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap are employed to hold a false tooth. The supporting teeth are covered with crowns and these crowns support the false tooth.
They are attached to the adjacent teeth or to dental implants next to where the tooth once stood.
The spaces left by missing teeth can cause the adjacent teeth to move or shift. This can result in the bite changing. Dental bridge helps prevent this bite collapse from happening.
