What Is The Difference Between Dental Crowns And Bridges?
Dental crowns and bridges are common restorative dental procedures that help improve the appearance and functionality of damaged or missing teeth. They are custom-made with porcelain, ceramic or metal combined with ceramic. However, you should know a few differences between these two treatments.
A dental crown is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its functionality and strength. In contrast, a dental bridge replaces one or multiple missing teeth, literally bridging the gap between two healthy teeth. Another difference between dental crowns and bridges is that crowns repair and strengthen individual teeth, while bridges are designed to replace one tooth or entire sections of teeth.
Additionally, crowns can be placed on a single tooth, while bridges require one or more adjacent healthy teeth to serve as anchors for the pontics. Ultimately, the decision to choose either treatment will depend on your needs and the professional opinion of our dentists.
