A crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth and held in place by dental adhesive or cement. Crowns are used for several reasons: as a protective cover for badly decayed teeth or fractured teeth, as a permanent restoration for teeth with large fillings, to correct minor problems in natural teeth like spacing and irregular shape or severe discolouration.

Bridge is a combination of individual crowns served for more than one tooth replacement. Bridges are usually made of a precious metal. Sometimes, there are other non-precious metals used in the base for strength.

Benefits:

In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.

Questions & Answers

What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?

If you have a missing tooth, your dentist will most likely recommend getting a dental bridge installed.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is made up of two or more dental crowns that are latched onto healthy teeth in order to replace an open space where there is a missing tooth or teeth.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a protective, tooth-shaped cover. It is used to repair damaged or discoloured teeth and protects them from external elements that could cause more damage. Dental crowns cover fillings and hold dental bridges in place.

Why do I need a dental crown?

You may need a dental crown if you have one or more damaged or discoloured teeth.

What types of materials are used to make dental crowns?

Dental crowns are usually made of porcelain, metal, metal-infused porcelain, or ceramic. Your dentist will choose the material based on the purpose of the procedure—cosmetic or medical—as well where the crown is being placed in your mouth.

What is involved in getting a dental crown?

The procedure for installing a dental crown can take anywhere between one to two weeks depending on your and your dentist’s availability. First, your dentist will need to take measurements of the affected area. They will then install a temporary crown while the permanent one is being made. After that, you’ll have to go in for another appointment so the dentist can remove the temporary crown and install the permanent one. They will have to make sure that it’s properly fitted.

Is it necessary to get a root canal before a dental crown?

No, it’s not necessary to get a root canal before a dental crown. Although, you will most likely need to have a crown installed to protect a tooth that has just undergone root canal treatment.

Will my crown’s shape and colour look natural?

Absolutely. The whole point of installing a crown over a damaged or discoloured tooth in the first place is to hide any imperfections. The crown will be made to blend in with your other teeth and match the natural look of your smile.

Does a crowned tooth require special care?

No, a crowned tooth does not require any special care. You simply need to practice good oral hygiene habits like brushing twice daily and flossing once every night.
