Dental Crown & Bridge

Dental Crown and Bridges.

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -- these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth -- and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Dental Crown and Bridge

Types of Dental Crowns and Bridges:

  • Traditional bridges: involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.

 

  • Cantilever bridges: are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth. This is not very common any more and is not recommended in the back of the mouth where it can put too much force on other teeth and damage them.

 

  • Maryland bonded bridges: (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal or porcelain framework. Metal or porcelain wings often on just one side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.

Difference between a dental crown and a dental bridge:

A dental crown is a tooth shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

A bridge spans a space where one or more teeth have been lost in the dental arch. The teeth on either end of the gap are crowned, and are referred to as abutments. The false teeth in a bridge that join the abutments are referred to as pontics.

Crowns and bridge may be made of metal, porcelain, or newer restorative materials like metal free ceramics( Zirconia, Ultratranslucent, Bruxzir & Robust, Ivoclar Zenostar, 3M Lava Essential).
