Crowns and Bridges

What is Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges are commonly used in restorative dentistry to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over damaged teeth to protect and strengthen them, while bridges are used to fill the gaps left by missing teeth. Crowns and bridges can improve both the function and appearance of your teeth, restoring your ability to bite and chew properly, and giving you a more attractive smile. They are typically made of porcelain, ceramic, or a combination of materials, and are customized to fit your teeth and blend in with your natural smile.

To ensure the longevity of your dental crown or bridge, it is important to practice good oral hygiene habits such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting the dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. You should also avoid biting down on hard foods or using your teeth as tools, as this can damage the crown or bridge.

  4. Use fluoride: Use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash to strengthen the teeth and prevent tooth decay.
  5. Wear a mouthguard: If you grind or clench your teeth at night, wear a mouthguard to protect your crown or bridge.
  6. Seek prompt treatment: If you experience any discomfort or notice any damage to your crown or bridge, seek prompt treatment from the dentist.
