Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, can be used for a variety of restorative purposes. They can cover an existing tooth and protect it from further damage and decay, and are often put on top of a tooth after root canal therapy. Dental crowns are also used for single tooth replacements. They can attach to a dental implant in place of a missing tooth. Crowns look and function like natural teeth and are a popular tooth restoration.
Common Uses for Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your previous tooth, so most people won’t be able to tell the difference.
Dental crowns have many uses, including:
- Protecting a worn or damaged tooth
- Replacing a missing tooth
- Restoring a tooth after a root canal
- Supporting a dental bridge
Dental bridges can replace one tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. A bridge is an appliance with false (but natural-looking) teeth attached to it that connects to the teeth on either side of the gap. Since the bridge relies on some of your existing teeth, dental crowns are often placed over them for additional support. Dental bridges give you a complete, fully functioning smile once more!
Benefits of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are a common tooth replacement method that restore the appearance and functionality of your smile. Some of their benefits include:
- Correctly distributing the force of your bite
- Maintaining your facial shape
- Preventing your existing teeth from moving
- Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew
