Tooth crowns are caps that completely engulf a damaged or decayed tooth. There are many types of crowns that range from being entirely made of porcelain to being entirely made of metal according to each person’s condition and need. We will explain to you the main advantages and disadvantages of each type.
In case of tooth extractions, crowns can be used to hold the bridges in their places.
Bridges are dental appliances that are used to make up for extracted teeth and are designed to join an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants by spanning the area where the tooth is missing.
The bridges can only be installed by dentists and patients cannot remove them.
Bridges and crowns simulate the natural teeth in color and appearance and they can last for an entire life without needing to exchange it unless it fell off. Needless to say, suitable dental care and follow up with the dentist contribute to the installations’ health.
