Crowns and Bridges

If you have a decayed,damaged or a missing tooth, crowns and bridges can restore them allowing you to smile confidently like before. A crown is used to restore one tooth while a bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth. At Judy Walker’s dental services, we ensure the natural appearance of your teeth after crown or bridge treatment.

  • Crown restorations are required after a root canal treatment as the tooth becomes more prone to fractures.
  • Fractured teeth that can’t be fixed by a filling.
  • Teeth supporting the adjacent bridge replacement need a crown restoration.
  • To replace decayed tooth.
  • Stained or discolored teeth need restorations.
  • To replace an extensively damaged tooth that can no longer keep the filling intact.

More about Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are usually made up of ceramics such as porcelain and metals like gold. Porcelain crowns and bridges are custom made to sync well with the natural color or shade of the existing teeth. Gold fits bill at the rear end of the mouth where the utmost strength is required and appearance is not an issue. The tooth size is reduced so that a crown or a bridge fits over the existing teeth properly. We would recommend that you rinse your mouth regularly with salt water for the speedy recovery of the gums.

An impression of the prepared tooth is taken by a dentist and the dental lab makes the crown or a bridge using the material as per the specifications. A temporary crown or a bridge is fixed over your teeth until the permanent one has been made. The crown or a bridge is then cemented over the prepared tooth. The durability of the crowns and bridges varies and proper oral hygiene determines the longevity of the restorations.
