Crowns and Bridges Services

Crowns and bridges may be recommended by your Smile Workshop dentist if you have missing or damaged teeth. Therefore, there are other options options such as dentures! This is an option that you can take out and clean, however those can slide around, shift, or fall out which is why it’s not the best option for everyone. But between crown implants and bridges, which option is the best choice for you?

What Is The Difference Between Crowns and Bridges?

A dental crown helps cap an individual’s damaged or decaying tooth. Dental implants are metal fixtures, surgically fastened to your jawbone below the gums. Similarly, this helps provide stable support you can rely on while eating and speaking.

Bridges, on the other hand, are solely used to replace missing teeth. They have two crowns – one on either end – and a bridge of replacement teeth that rest in the area of the gums where there is tooth loss. 

Whichever of these replacement tooth options is best for you – they can be vital in maintaining your oral health. Additionally, gaps in areas of loss can cause your other teeth to begin rotating or shifting into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. 

How do Crowns Work?

Generally, crowns are implemented to help maintain its size, strength, shape, and appearance if your teeth are decaying or missing. If you’re missing a tooth, a dental professional will give you a dental implant, on top of which they will place your crown. 

Your crown will be made from one, or a mixture, of various materials. Porcelain, acrylic, and ceramic crowns can more closely match your natural teeth. Acrylic and ceramic options are known to be durable.

How do Bridges Work?

Whereas crowns can repair damaged teeth, a bridge’s sole function is to replace one or more missing teeth. For a bridge, your dental professional will place caps on filed-down teeth or dental implants at the outer edges of your area of loss.

Just like with dental crowns, you have a choice of materials available to you for your bridge. Your dental professional is in the best position to advise you in your material choice base on your individual needs. However, you’ll both want to consider and discuss multiple factors like the visibility of the tooth, the cost, the strength, and how it looks.
