Dental Bridges and Dental Crowns
A dental bridge permanently replaces missing teeth with false teeth. The bridge is attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are usually made of porcelain or metal, a mixture of the 2, or zirconia. They are fixed in place and, for some people, are an alternative to dentures.
In dentistry, a crown most commonly refers to a dental cap, a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. A crown may be needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. A crown is typically bonded to the tooth by dental cement.
Dental bridges are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth. A bridge is made up of one or more replacement teeth held in place by two dental crowns on either side. The crowns are attached to the existing teeth, providing a secure and stable foundation for the bridge. Bridges can help improve your appearance as well as your bite, chewing capabilities, and speech.
What are Dental Bridges Made From?
Dental bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including metal alloys, porcelain, ceramic, and zirconia. The material chosen will depend on the number of teeth being replaced, the position of the missing teeth, and your budget.

We will prescribe a bridge when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space. Bridges can be made from three types of material: solid gold for reliable long wear, porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty, and high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results.
Bridges are prescribed for damaged, decayed or broken teeth. The damaged teeth are prepared by eliminating tooth structure. After fabrication the bridge is cemented to the prepared teeth. Bridges restore the natural beauty and health of teeth. With proper care, your new bridge will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.

Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration used to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape, size, and function. A bridge is an artificial replacement for missing teeth that is held in place by crowns on either side. Both bridges and crowns are made from high-quality materials such as metal alloys.
Dental crowns are used to strengthen and protect weakened or broken teeth. They are custom-made to fit over a damaged tooth, protecting from further decay. Bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Both crowns and bridges can be made of porcelain, metal, or a combination of both materials.
Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals, but can also be placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
With proper care, your new crown will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.
What are Crowns Made From?
Crowns can be fabricated out of many different materials, including plastic, various metals, porcelain, or a combination of these. Porcelain is the most commonly used material for crowns and bridges. Porcelain is strong, highly durable, and can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
