Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dr. Hosseini

Dental crowns and bridges offer a convenient way to restore missing teeth. However, the benefits of dental crowns and bridges are many. They provide permanent replacements for damaged or missing teeth and help restore the patient's smile. Both treatments use prosthetic devices to restore normal tooth function.  

A dental crown takes place when the tooth structure is cracked or damaged. A dental bridge is your solution when one or more teeth are missing. Dental crowns and bridges are becoming immensely popular worldwide and are highly durable and reliable. Get to know the benefits of dental crowns and bridges, and check out the signs if you need this treatment. 

What are Crowns and Bridges? 

A dental crown is an artificial tooth made with ceramic or porcelain. It is a kind of cap that the dentist places over the damaged tooth. A crown saves the tooth structure when the patient's tooth is damaged because of decay, infection, or otherwise.

A dental bridge is a permanent dental prosthetic that replaces one or more missing teeth. The dental bridge consists of two crowns that support the affected tooth. It is also made of ceramic or porcelain material and aids chewing.

Signs You Need a Dental Crown and Bridge: 

  • You have one or more missing teeth that need replacement. A bridge and crown can go hand-in-hand in this process. 
  • You have a damaged tooth, and it's affecting your chewing process. The dentist might recommend you a dental crown to protect the tooth structure. 
  • You have a large cavity, and your tooth is overfilling. A dental crown might be necessary. 
  • You had a root canal. A dental crown would cap your tooth to protect it from further damage. 
  • You have a cracked tooth, causing you high tooth sensitivity or pain.  
  • Your tooth is missing, and it can cause adjacent teeth to shift. The bridge placement is most often the right choice in such a case. 
  • You are missing multiple or consecutive teeth in your mouth. A dental bridge can help restore your teeth' function and oral health.

Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges

You might be wondering about the benefits of dental crowns and bridges besides improving aesthetics. So, here you go. Let's discuss some of their gifts with brief explanations. 

  • Improved Chewing 

Damage to a tooth or having one or more missing teeth can be frustrating. It can be challenging to chew in such situations, and you might have some nutritional deficiencies. A crown or bridge placement aids chewing and is suitable for oral health. 

  • No More Pain

Broken teeth can cause tooth pain and sensitivity to hot and cold foods. A dental crown is the best option to help relieve this pain and restore normal tooth function. Also, if you do not replace a missing tooth, it can cause TMJ (Temporomandibular Joints) disorder. Your jaw can be affected, and it can cause chronic pain that can be frustrating for many. 

  • Better Appearance

Dental crowns and bridges improve the tooth's appearance and make you feel more confident. They not only make you self-conscious, but you also try to avoid speaking in public. Missing teeth can add more to your daily stress level. 

  • Maintains Facial Shape

Dental crowns and bridges fill the spaces left by missing teeth. Also, they help to maintain the natural contour of your face and help restore your smile. When one or more teeth are missing, they can affect or change the shape of your face. 

  • Durable 

One of the top benefits of dental crowns and bridges is their durability. They can even last for a lifetime or at least 15 years.   

Final Words

Dental crowns and bridges are permanent restorations for broken, decayed, or missing teeth. Today, many crowns and bridges are available and customized per the patient's need. Talk to your dentist if you are a candidate for a dental crown or bridge and restore your oral health.
