A Crown & Bridge Overview From Your Aurora Dentist
Don’t let tooth damage or tooth loss get you down. At Village Green Dental, your dentist in Aurora, we use crowns and bridges to return smiles to their original glory, both aesthetically and functionality-wise.
About dental crowns & bridges
A crown, or cap, is put over a tooth to restore its size, shape, strength, and enhance its appearance. They can be made out of several materials, including porcelain, gold, and stainless steel. Crowns are tough and can last for many years if looked after. That means brushing, flossing, and professional checkups and cleanings. We’ll create a crown that matches the rest of your smile and is comfortable. You won’t even notice that one of your teeth has one of these caps on it.
Bridges made it possible to close gaps attributed to missing teeth. They do this with a mix of artificial teeth and dental crowns. What’s also fantastic about them is they redistribute the workload of teeth more evenly. And bridges last a long time, too.
Occasionally, we use crowns and bridges to prevent tooth loss, damage, and more extensive work.
Looking after crowns and bridges
Crowns and bridges go over the majority of a tooth’s surface. But problems can arise at or below the gumline. Plaque and bacteria tend to form here. If even a little bit of decay develops under a crown, it can progress as unchecked as routine x-rays cannot see through a crown. That’s why it’s key to keep up a good cleaning routine at home – brushing twice a day and flossing once.
