Crowns are typically used to protect and restore a damaged tooth, or to improve its appearance. A crown, also known as a cap, is a custom-made covering that fits over the visible portion of a tooth. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or zirconia, and are designed to match the color of your natural teeth for a seamless, natural look.
One of the main benefits of a dental crown is that it can help to strengthen a damaged or weakened tooth, preventing further damage and preserving the health of the surrounding teeth. A crown covers, protects and supports the tooth 360 degrees preventing further wear and tear on the tooth itself. Crowns can also be used to restore the appearance of a misshapen, discolored, or otherwise unsightly tooth, improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth that are attached to crowns on either end effectively “bridging” the gap and restoring the appearance and function.
Dental bridges can provide several benefits to patients with missing teeth. In addition to restoring the appearance of the smile, bridges can also improve the function of the bite and prevent teeth from shifting into the space left by the missing tooth. Bridges can also help to preserve the health of the jawbone and surrounding tissues, preventing further dental problems and maintaining optimal oral health.
Onlays are an amazing restoration that provide the strength of a crown while keeping the conservative preparation similar to a filling. An onlay is made of the same strong materials as a crown or bridge. An onlay is the restoration of choice when doing a large filling would leave the tooth too fragile but a full coverage restoration such as a crown may not be needed.
