Dental Bridges vs Dental Crowns in Panania – What’s the Difference?
Dental crowns are made to cover and protect a whole tooth and are designed to protect a tooth that is cracked, chipped, has lost most of its structure, or to provide support for a tooth that has undergone endodontic treatment (a root canal). In addition to covering or ‘capping’ a tooth, a dental crown can be used to complete a dental implant.
What about dental bridges?
Dental bridges are used to close a gap in your smile when a tooth or teeth are missing. Dental bridges are ideal when one or more adjacent teeth are missing and consist of two supporting crowns joined to one or more false teeth. The supporting crowns sit directly over the natural teeth situated either side of the gap. This leaves the ‘false’ tooth (or teeth) to span or ‘bridge’ the gap to complete the smile.
Types of Dental Crowns (and Dental Bridges) in Panania
Traditionally, materials used to make crowns and dental bridges consist of a variety of products. These include:
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM)
- All ceramic and
all of which have their various advantages for Panania patients depending upon their dental situation and where the crown needs to be positioned.
During an initial consultation with our Picnic Point dentist we will discuss the advantages of each crown, including costs, to allow you to make an informed and proper decision.
