Sometimes damage to a tooth is so large that it cannot be repaired adequately by a filling. In this case, the best option to prevent further deterioration of the tooth and restore tooth quality and function is to place a crown. There are different types of crowns: porcelain crowns, porcelain with metal crowns and metal crowns. They differ in durability, strength, appearance and cost. Talk to us at Beaumaris Dental Care, to find out what best suits your need.
While a crown fits over a natural tooth or dental implant, a bridge is a dental prosthesis that spans across an area that has no teeth taking the support of your own teeth/dental implants on each side of your missing teeth.
That’s a good question. Crowns are strong and if you maintain good dental hygiene, they can last for about 10 years or longer. You can just brush and floss your crown, just like you clean your natural teeth. We will give a complete list of aftercare measures that you can follow so you can take care of your dental crown. Also remember, they may not be as strong as your natural teeth. So, like your natural teeth, remember not to bite down on hard objects or use your teeth to open or cut things.
