Reasons to Favor Dental Bridges and Crowns


Placing  dental bridges and crowns are just one of the several options a dentist can offer to their patients in order to replace missing teeth (in case of bridges), or strengthen, preserve or correct the shape of a tooth (in case of single crowns). 

Dental bridges are also popularly known as a fixed partial denture. As the name suggests, dental bridges are placed to anchor together two, or more crowns that are noticeably apart or just to replace a missing tooth or sets of teeth. The wide gaps between the teeth are then eliminated. Many patients seek out this treatment when they want to correct or improve their appearance, and chewing function.


What You Should Know About Dental Bridges and Crowns


 Dental bridges and crowns are usually made out of all porcelain, or porcelain blended with  metals. The end result is usually a natural looking tooth or teeth, matched in shape and color to the adjacent natural teeth. Crowns that are a part of dental bridge are called abutments and basically hold both of your natural and fake teeth together. 


Once placed, dental bridges can last for a period of 5 to 15 years, on average, with proper oral hygiene and professional care, and in the absence of other complicating factors like teeth grinding or clenching habits. 


The traditional fixed bridge is done by permanently connecting a false tooth or teeth (usually porcelain) between dual crowns secured on the closest natural teeth or implants. 

What You Should Know About It


Missing teeth can slightly distort the shape of the face. Replacing these missing teeth will allow you to smile wider and  speak without any speech impediments, and maintain the shape of your face. 


It takes a little as 10 days to a couple of weeks to complete the entire  process of having a dental bridge or crowns made and placed in the mouth. 


Fixing bad teeth is imperative to someone who never wants to hide his or her smile. It takes very little incentive to convince someone to look more presentable. The services of a hairstylist, a dermatologist, a cosmetologist, and plastic surgeon are indispensable when one wants to instantly improve their physical looks. Nowadays, you can include dentists in that category. If you want to take care of your teeth, gums and mouth, dental bridges and crowns are some of the options that may be available to you.
