Best Candidature for Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are dental caps that are placed on the tooth or dental implant whereas bridges are fixed dental prosthesis used as a replacement for one or more missing teeth; bridging is done by joining artificial tooth adjacently to the dental implants or teeth.

However, not all individuals are the best suit for crowns and bridges.

An individual becomes the perfect candidate if he/she has the following dental problems:

  • Weak teeth.
  • Severely worn down or broken teeth.
  • Intense discolouration of the teeth.
  • Misshaped teeth.
  • The difficulty of speech.

Four types of dental crowns are:

  1. Ceramics crowns are made by porcelain materials and are used to restore the front teeth; they easily blend with your natural teeth colour.
  2. Crowns that have an alloy of gold- These are a mixture of copper and other metals that are used to provide a strong bonding to your teeth.
  3. Porcelain fused to metal crowns are known for their durability and tend to provide a strong bond to your teeth.
  4. Crowns that have a metal base alloy which resists corrosion.

Four types of Bridges are:

  1. Traditional bridges- These are pontics (fake teeth) that are held by abutments- used when you have natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by missing tooth- which is cemented onto the teeth adjacent to the missing teeth.
  2. Cantilever bridges are similar to the traditional bridges, but the pontics are supported by dental crowns only on one side.
  3. Maryland bridges- These bridges consist of a pontic being held by porcelains.
  4. Implant supported bridges. These bridges are applicable when you have various teeth missing where one implant is placed for every missing tooth, thus, holding the bridge firmly in place
