Crowns & Bridgework

Crowns & Bridgework

Crowns and bridges are made to recover missing teeth or replace any lost tooth structure. They are prosthetic devices that will remain fixed, and they are different from dentures, which are removable and you are advised to take them out to clean them every day. Conversely, crowns and bridges stay in the area because they are cemented on dental structures or implants. Thus, they are to be removed by a professional. The difference is that crowns cover a damaged dental structure or an implant and bridges are used when the patient is missing teeth and there’s an existing gap to fill.
