Aren’t Dental Crowns & Bridges the Same Thing?
While they are similar, crowns and bridges are different. Crowns consist of one artificial tooth restoration crafted to feel, look, and function naturally. They are perhaps the most common option for repairing or replacing one tooth at a time.
Dental bridges usually include two or more crowns, also made to look and act like natural teeth. Bridge restorations are often ideal for restoring several teeth missing in a row.
How Do Crowns Work?
Dental crowns work by encasing the entire structure of a severely weak, damaged, or worn-down tooth. These restorations cover teeth down the gum line. Crowns help protect natural teeth from further harm, damage, and infection. They also renew strength, dental function, and appeal. Implant-supported crowns can replace a single missing tooth completely.
7 Ways Crowns Can Improve Your Smile!
Dental crowns provide versatile treatment. Depending on your needs, Dr. Jordan can use them as a stand-alone service or in combination with other procedures. Our Windsor, CT, dentist can use crowns for the following seven situations:
- Repairing a badly cracked, chipped, or fractured tooth
- Securing a dental bridge
- Strengthening a weak tooth
- Replacing one missing tooth & complete a dental implant
- Enhancing a tooth’s shape and shade
- Preserving a tooth after root canal therapy
- Rebuilding a worn-down tooth
How Do Bridges Work?
The purpose of a dental bridge is to fill in the spaces left by missing teeth. Dental bridges are expertly made to bridge the gap between remaining teeth. These restorations can either use natural teeth on each side of the gap as anchors or be supported by two dental implants.
Gaps within the smile can lead to biting, chewing, and speaking issues. These complications can make even the most routine activities difficult and sometimes painful. Bridges can stop these issues before they start by replacing teeth for good.
What Benefits Can a Dental Bridge Provide?
By replacing lost teeth, bridges can provide many oral health and aesthetic benefits. Some notable advantages include:
- Chewing without pain
- Reinforcing a proper bite
- Improving speech
- Promoting healthy digestion
- Keeping neighboring teeth in place
- Restoring your smile discreetly
How We Help Ensure Comfortable & Efficient Treatment
At Jordan Dental Health Group, we do everything we can to make sure you receive the best treatment possible. Sometimes, this can require working closely with our network of trusted experts to create an effective treatment plan worthy of your needs. Dr. Jordan tailors your care based on your specific oral health, goals, and current situation.
For example, if you have a toothache and need root canal treatment, she can apply a temporary filling to ease your discomfort. She then refers you to the right local specialist. Dr. Jordan works to schedule an appointment so you can be seen as soon as possible.
After your treatment, we invite you back to our office for a crown fitting. We provide protection for your tooth with a temporary crown until your new, custom restoration is ready in seven to ten days.
Our team can also help you schedule professional tooth extraction. Dr. Jordan takes time to educate you about your options for tooth replacement after extraction. These options include bridges, partial dentures, or dental implants. We can set up a consultation with a local oral surgeon if you’re interested in dental implant solutions.
What Does Getting a Crown or Bridge Involve?
Getting a new crown or bridge typically requires two separate appointments. If treatment includes dental implants, the number of visits may vary.
Some alterations of your tooth or teeth are needed. Our dentist gently shapes and removes enough enamel to ensure your restoration fits comfortably and looks natural. We take impressions of your teeth and send them to a trusted dental lab that will craft your custom crown or bridge.
It typically takes anywhere from seven to ten days for our team to receive the brand-new restoration. Once we do, Dr. Jordan will place your custom crown and bridge and secure it within your smile.
How Long Do Crowns & Bridges Last?
The lifespan of your new crown or bridge depends heavily on the materials used and how well you’re willing to care for your smile. Typically, these restorations can last up to fifteen years, maybe more with proper care and good oral hygiene routine.
Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day, flossing daily, not smoking, and avoiding hard foods can help your crown or bridge last. We also recommend limiting your alcohol consumption and never using your teeth as tools.
