Crowns and Bridges in Molendinar – What’s The Difference?
Dental crowns provided at our Molendinar clinic are hollow ‘caps’ that cover the visible part of a tooth from top to bottom restoring both aesthetics and functionality. A dental bridge, on the other hand, is used to close a gap left by one or more missing teeth and is made up of two or more crowns that have been fused together.
Dental crowns are typically used by our dentist to:
- Strengthen a tooth that has lost much of its structure
- Conceal a tooth that is badly stained, cracked or chipped
- Protect a tooth left weakened following a root canal
- Reshape or resize a malformed tooth
Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, ceramic and gold. Our Molendinar dentist will be happy to discuss your best options.
More About Dental Bridges in Molendinar
Dental bridges at our Molendinar clinic are popular with patients who don’t wish to have dental implants and serve to replace one or more missing teeth.
A dental bridge comprises a dental crown at each end with one or more pontic (false) teeth in the centre. The pontic tooth or teeth rest lightly on the gums bridging the gap, while the crowns are placed over the abutment teeth (those adjacent to the gap) to anchor the bridge in position.
The anchoring crowns are cemented in place over the abutment teeth which have to be prepared to accommodate them so that the bite remains even. In the event that one or both of the abutment teeth aren’t healthy, an alternative is to replace them with an implant to secure the bridge.
