An Expert Guide To Dental Crowns and Bridges

When it comes to correcting teeth, you have many options. If you want a stronger solution than both cosmetic dentistry veneers and cosmetic dental bonding, then dental crowns and bridges will be best choices for you. Use this helpful guide to decide between crowns and bridges. 

The Real Deal on Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to cover a decayed or damaged tooth. They are popular because they enhance the tooth’s appearance, and their strength helps them last a long time. Crowns can be made out of tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain, to look just like natural teeth, as well as gold and metal alloys that are the strongest and best for back teeth. Your family dentist Atlanta can help you choose the best type for you.

Basics about Bridges

While dental crowns cover a tooth, bridges are used to replace one or several missing teeth. If not replaced, the gaps they leave in your smile can cause surrounding teeth to shift and misalign your bite. Bridges are bonded onto the natural teeth or implants around the gap, which serve to anchor them into place. Bridges also come in a variety of materials, including the porcelain or ceramic that can be colored to resemble your natural teeth. Your family dentist Atlanta can recommend the best material based on the location of the bridge, your aesthetic needs, and your budget.

Strong Smile Solutions

According to dental experts, both crowns and bridges can last an entire lifetime with proper care and cleaning. And both are much stronger and more durable than cosmetic dental bonding and cosmetic dentistry veneers. The way to keep in top condition is with good oral hygiene at home and regular visits to the dentist for check-ups, cleanings, and any needed repair.
