What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are simply tooth shaped dental caps which can be placed over a vulnerable tooth to fully restore its natural shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns, when cemented firmly in place, fully encase the visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. They can also serve to fill in the missing space left by a tooth that has been completely lost.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges work in conjunction with dental crowns to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where your natural teeth are missing. Dental bridges can be cemented to either the surrounding teeth or a dental implant. Porcelain and ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Missing teeth can often cause surrounding teeth to shift, which can lead to bite misalignment as well as jaw soreness. Shifting teeth can also create new places for dental plaque to hide, increasing your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Don’t let a tooth loss problem turn into a larger oral health problem. Schedule the crown and bridgework appointment you need with Juno Beach Smiles today.
