Crowns are used to restore or replace chipped or broken teeth. Metal, porcelain, resin, or ceramic crowns encase the tooth and restore its natural, full appearance. An easy way to think of them is as a protective “helmet” that goes around your tooth. By encasing your tooth in a crown, you protect it from further damage. It not only looks like new, but functions like new as well. This allows you to maintain your natural teeth for as long as possible and delay, if not entirely prevent, needing to extract an overly damaged tooth.
Crowns are strong and last for about 10 years or longer. It is critical to take care of your crown, just like your natural teeth. However, crowns may not be as strong as your natural teeth, so remember not to bite down on hard objects, or use your teeth to open or cut things.
You may need a crown for the following reasons:
Bridges literally bridge gaps in your mouth from missing teeth.
The bridge is a metal unit of three crowns, fashioned from porcelain to your mouth’s specifications, with the middle crown solid to mimic a tooth; the other two are hollow in order to fit and be cemented over the teeth on either side of the gap.
A colour is chosen to blend in with existing teeth and the shade of the bridge for a natural look.
Bridges can also be supported by dental implants, allowing you to replace multiple teeth in a row without compromising any healthy teeth at the same time.
