Difference Between Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges

dental bridgesIf you are experiencing problems with your teeth, it is important to take action sooner rather than later. Waiting to give your teeth the proper care they need can result in further complications, and can put your smile in jeopardy. Dental bridges and dental crowns both provide you with the support that your smile needs to be properly restored. In this blog, we are going to discuss what dental bridges and crowns are, and what purpose they serve in dental restoration.

What Are Dental Bridges? 

A dental bridge is a form of dental restoration that is used to help replace a missing tooth or missing teeth. It is set in place by joining an artificial tooth with teeth adjacent to it. This forms a “bridge” to help fill in the space where the tooth is missing. Dental bridges serve as an exceptional way to restore a smile that may be struggling with missing, broken, and decayed teeth.

What Are Dental Crowns? 

Dental crowns are a form of dental restoration that uses an artificial tooth cap to cover a tooth that is weak, broken, or decayed. A small part of the enamel is taken off of the natural tooth to ensure that the crown fits adequately. Dental crowns are often used in combination with bridges to form a cohesive structure in the mouth. This allows you to have a restored smile that you can be proud of.
