what is a dental bridge and crowns

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. It consists of artificial teeth, called pontics, which fill the gap created by missing teeth. The bridge is anchored in place by dental crowns attached to the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) on either side of the gap or by dental implants. Bridges restore the functionality of the bite and the aesthetics of the smile, as well as prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Dental crowns, on the other hand, are tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed over individual teeth or dental implants. They are used to cover, protect, and restore the structure of teeth that are damaged, decayed, or aesthetically displeasing. Crowns can also be used to reinforce teeth that have been weakened, such as those that have undergone root canal therapy, or to anchor a dental bridge in place. Crowns are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of the natural teeth, providing a seamless look and restoring full dental function.

Dental Bridges And Crowns FAQ's

The most common type of dental bridge is the traditional fixed bridge. This bridge consists of one or more false teeth, called pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns cemented onto the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap. Traditional bridges are popular because they are strong, durable, and suitable for replacing teeth in most areas of the mouth.

The process of fitting a dental bridge typically requires two visits to the dentist. The first visit involves preparing the abutment teeth and taking impressions, which can take about an hour. The impressions are then sent to a dental lab where the bridge is made, which can take a couple of weeks. During the second visit, the dentist will fit, adjust, and cement the bridge into place, which may take another hour or so. Overall, the entire process from start to finish usually takes a few weeks.

Dental bridges require a commitment to oral hygiene but are not necessarily hard to clean. Special flossing techniques, such as using a floss threader to pass floss under the pontic, or using interdental brushes or water flossers, can help maintain the health of the teeth and gums around the bridge. Your dentist can provide instructions on how to effectively clean around and under your dental bridge.

The lifespan of a dental crown depends on various factors such as the material used, the amount of wear and tear it is exposed to, and how well it is maintained. On average, dental crowns can last between 5 to 15 years, but with proper care and maintenance, they can last even longer, sometimes up to 25 years or more.

Getting a dental crown is usually not a painful procedure. Most of the work is done under local anesthesia, which numbs the tooth and surrounding area. You may experience some sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure as the anesthesia wears off, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Any discomfort is usually temporary.

Delaying a dental crown is not recommended. Once a tooth has been deemed in need of a crown, it is usually because the tooth is damaged or weakened and requires protection. Delaying the placement of a crown can lead to further damage, such as cracks or fractures,
