Face the Facts about Dental Crowns and Bridges

Are you ashamed of your smile because some of your teeth are damaged or missing? Luckily, you have many choices to improve your smile and confidence. While both cosmetic dentistry veneers and cosmetic dental bonding are the newest kinds of treatments, two more traditional and stronger options are dental crowns and bridges. Discover how crowns and bridges can make you happy with your smile for life.

Discover Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover a tooth that’s been badly damaged to enhance its look and strength. 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 Annapolis can help you choose the best type for you.

The Beauty of 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 Annapolis can recommend the best material based on the location of the bridge, your aesthetic needs, and your budget.

The Last Word on How Long They Last

Thanks to great advances in dentistry, both crowns and bridges are strong enough to last a lifetime, as long as they receive proper care. And both of these options are considered to be more durable and stronger than either cosmetic dental bonding or 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.
