Crowns and Bridges


 

When a tooth becomes extensively decayed or seriously damaged, enough so that it cannot be restored by a filling, your dentist might recommend you get dental crowns or bridges. There are many reasons to get such restorations: very weak and damaged teeth, cosmetic desires, to prevent bone and tissue loss, etc. They are very natural-looking and beautiful restorations. They function as a cap that is fixed over the damaged tooth in order to prevent more damage or even tooth loss. Patients reach out to us at First Class Dental for the best dental care possible.

Types

There are various types of crowns. They mostly differ by the materials they are made from. Materials include: resin, porcelain, ceramic and stainless steel types of crowns. Moreover, there are cosmetic crowns, which are usually made of both ceramic and porcelain.

Our specialists at First Class Dental will help you to choose the best type of dental crowns for your individual case. We will provide you with different options and tell you all the advantages and disadvantages of each type of crown, so you will be well-informed and able to make your own decision towards which type of crown you are leaning to!

The procedure

It usually takes two to three visits to get your dental crowns placed. The first visit includes an examination of your teeth and overall mouth. This is necessary to conclude which treatment option would fit your case the best. Your first visit may include making tooth and bite impressions, which will help the doctor clearly evaluate your mouth. This makes planning your full treatment process much more efficient. Also, x-rays might be taken in order to evaluate the condition of your tooth roots, bones and other oral structures. X-rays will help your dentist to decide which treatment option is the best for you and if the restoration will be able to support the tooth.

After that, your teeth will be prepared for the dental crown. Your dentist will decide whether you need local anesthesia or not. After your tooth is shaped properly for the dental crown, your dentist will make an impression again. From the copy of this impression the dental laboratory will be able to fabricate your permanent crowns. After the preparation of the tooth, you will have temporary crowns fixed on your tooth till the next visit. In that way, the tooth will be protected and secured.

During the next visit, your dentist will have your permanent crowns fabricated by the dental technician. Firstly, he will remove your temporary crown, clean and prepare the surface for permanent crown cementation. With special adhesive material, your dentist will position and fix the permanent crown.

After this procedure, you may need some time to adjust to the new restoration in your mouth. You may feel that even the chewing, biting and speaking might be different and uncomfortable at first. But after the first few days or weeks, you will feel comfortable and even forget that there’s something on your tooth. It will look, feel and function as your regular natural tooth.

Bridges

Bridges are very similar to crowns, but they are used to replace more than one tooth. They are essentially multiple connected crowns in jointed together in one reconstruction. There might be missing, gapped or decayed teeth - all of them can be restored with dental bridges. Two teeth are prepared for dental crowns, which are fixed with special attachments which hold the bridge as an anchor. Once it is ensured that it fits perfectly, then the bridge is cemented permanently.

The procedure consists of the same steps as dental crowns. The main difference is the restoration and its size. You need a bridge when there is more than one damaged neighbor tooth.
