WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?

A dental bridge — a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (also known as fixed bridges), or they can be removable.
All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss at Bestdent Dental Clinic.
Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be aware of their importance to your appearance and dental health. Your teeth work together for many daily functions from eating to speaking. With missing teeth, it’s difficult to do these things. Missing teeth can and should be replaced. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?

A bridge (fixed partial denture) is a device which fills the gap where teeth are absent. Fixed bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional. Removable bridges, as the name implies, can be taken out and cleaned. Fixed bridges offer more stability than their removable counterparts.

HOW IS A BRIDGE ATTACHED?

The attachment procedure usually takes two or three appointments to complete. At the first appointment will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap by removing a portion of the enamel and dentin. Since the bridge must be fabricated very precisely to ensure correct bite and to match the opposing tooth, impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to a lab where the bridge will be constructed. Fixed bridges are typically cemented to the natural teeth next to the space left by the missing tooth. A pontic (false tooth) replaces the lost tooth.Crowns, which are cemented onto the natural teeth, provide support for the bridge.

Dental Crown

A crown is basically a cap for a damaged tooth. It can be made from a variety of materials, including metal  or porcelain.

You might have a crown over a molar that rarely shows, except when you yawn widely, or you might have crowns on your front teeth that were specifically designed to match your other teeth.

Several factors are important to consider when choosing a crown, including:

  • cost
  • strength
  • durability

A natural appearance that doesn’t detract from your smile may also be a priority for you. A dentist can discuss the various options and help you to figure out what best meets your needs

Types of dental crowns

Different kinds of materials  can be used in crowns, including:

  • porcelain
  • ceramic
  • zirconia
  • metal
  • composite resin
  • a combination of materials

For example, you could have a porcelain crown that’s fused to metal, as opposed to an all-porcelain crown.

When selecting the material for your crown, your dentist will consider factors such as:

  • your tooth’s location
  • how much of the tooth will show when you smile
  • position of your gum tissue
  • function of the tooth that needs the crown
  • how much natural tooth is remaining
  • color of the surrounding teeth

Temporary crown

A temporary crown is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a crown that’ll only remain in your mouth for a short period of time.

Your dentist will place it over your tooth with an adhesive that’s easily removed, so it won’t be as strong as a permanent crown.

This is done while you’re waiting for a permanent crown to be made. The permanent crown will be placed on your tooth at a second appointment.

One-day crown

You can get a crown in a single appointment.

Who needs a crown?

If you have a large cavity that’s too big for a filling, it may be time for a crown.

You may also need a crown if your tooth is:

  • severely worn down
  • cracked
  • weakened

Crowns are also recommended following a root canal on a tooth, because the tooth is more fragile and needs protection.

You may be a candidate for a crown if you’re missing a tooth, and the dentist needs to put in a dental bridge  or a tooth implant.

Ceramic Inlays

Dental inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth that have a mild to moderate amount of decay. They can also be used to restore teeth that are cracked or fractured if the damage is not severe enough to require a dental crown. Inlays and onlays are usually made from porcelain, composite resin, and sometimes even from gold. Because they can be created from tooth-colored materials, inlays and onlays are often used to replace metal fillings for patients who desire a more natural looking smile. Read on to find out about how inlays and onlays may be able to enhance your smile’s health and appearance.

Dental inlays are used to treat teeth that have decay or damage lying within their indented top surfaces. They can also be used to replace old or damaged metal fillings. Inlay placement is usually carried out over two appointments. During your first visit to the dentist, an impression of your tooth will be taken, and a temporary inlay will be placed over the tooth. The dentist will send the impression off to a dental lab, which will create the inlay to match your tooth’s specifications. When you return to the dentist’s office, the temporary inlay will be removed and the permanent one will be placed carefully over your tooth. There is no downtime after receiving a dental inlay, only a mild level of tenderness in the treated area, so you can return to work or other activities as soon as you leave the office.

Since dental inlays and onlays can be made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain, they offer much more enduring and natural-looking results than metal fillings. In addition, their customized nature allows dentists to securely bond them to the tooth surface, adding structural integrity and preventing bacteria from entering and forming cavities.

DENTAL ONLAYS

Whereas dental inlays are designed to treat decay within the cusps, or top projections, of a tooth, onlays are used to treat decay that extends to one or more of the cusps. Onlays are placed in much the same way as inlays. First, an impression of the decayed tooth is taken, and a temporary onlay is placed over the tooth. The impression is then sent to a lab, where a dental technician creates the onlay according to the tooth’s dimensions. When the patient returns to the dentist’s office, the temporary onlay is removed, and the permanent restoration is placed on the tooth and securely bonded using high-strength dental resins.

Like dental inlays, onlays can be created from tooth-colored material, which makes them virtually undetectable to the naked eye. Onlays also help to conserve more tooth structure because their use requires minimal removal a tooth’s surface. Perhaps their most important benefit, however, is that, in saving damaged teeth, onlays help patients avoid the eventual need for more extensive treatment with dental crowns & bridges, or dental implants.
