You may require prosthesis known as ʻcrownʼ and ʻbridgeʼ to solve your above-mentioned tooth problems. A crown is a ʻcapʼ that fits over a damaged/decayed/unattractive tooth. A ʻbridgeʼ can entirely replace a missing tooth. The steps that go into a crown/bridge procedure include:

  • In the first visit, local anesthesia is administered for the tooth/teeth to be reduced.
  • Preparation of the tooth/teeth involves recontouring by removing a portion of enamel to allow space for the crown to be placed on them.
  • Impressions are made which serve as a model for the crown/bridge to be prepared and they are sent to the dental lab
  • The dentist prepares a temporary crown/bridge to cover the exposed teeth and gums.
  • During the second visit, the final crown/bridge is cemented onto the tooth structure using bonding cement.

The benefits of a dental crown or bridge include:

  • Restore your smile
  • Restore the ability to chew or speak properly
  • Maintains the shape of the face
  • Prevents remaining teeth from moving into the space of the missing tooth/teeth
  • Distributes the force in your bite equally among all teeth

You can ensure that your crown/bridge can last a lifetime when you follow all these tips:

  • Brush twice a day, use a floss, and antiseptic mouthwash in order to help prevent decay and gum disease.
  • Your dentist or dental hygienist will demonstrate how to properly brush if you have been following an incorrect technique.
  • A balanced diet for proper nutrition is also important.
